The days of cloud computing has come to stay and that is very much evident. With so many players around, including Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Docs and SkyDrive, users could not have asked for more. The advantages of using cloud drives are not difficult to see. You can access your files anytime you want, anywhere you want, keep it safe from your computer’s hard disk failure and collaborate with users over long distances. But not all these cloud services are equal and that is not what was intended either. Each had its own reasons to stay ahead of the crowd.
Google Drive was certainly among the best that you could have wanted in an iCloud environment, but Google choose to take the competition ahead against SkyDrive. They are not made equal and each has its own pros and cons, mostly pros. Here are some comparisons that you may want to consider before signing up for one or the other. That there are differences between the two services don’t necessarily mean that the other two from outside lack in features. In fact, besides the Google Drive and SkyDrive, Dropbox and Amazon Cloud Drive too seem to be performing well.
Here is how Google Drive and SkyDrive compare against each other.
Interface Differences Mean Lots to Users
At least on the interface front both don’t seem to have much differences, but then that they have a lot in common with Dropbox, is something to note. Both sync well and everything is plain and simple. If you still want a result for the competition, there is nothing to say what makes one better over the other.
Over the past several years, the introduction of cloud computing has made room for many advancements in computer technology and has changed the way many companies do their business. It has created opportunities for work to be done remotely with greater ease, has helped with sharing files, and has taken pressure off the finite memory of computers and smart devices by allowing information to be stored in servers elsewhere. The year 2013 is likely to see many advancements and opportunities as the technology continues to progress. Here are just a few predictions for the upcoming year.
It is likely that the different technologies and functions will consolidate
The quick rise and diversification of cloud technology has led to a wide range of types of cloud services and related platform as a service (PaaS) technology. The year 2013 and subsequent years are likely to see a convergence of the different technologies to a more user friendly system combined with a consolidation of various cloud technologies. This would enable users to use more of cloud technology brokerage models, which can serve for a variety of functions.
