Easily the most recognized online storage service of the list here, Dropbox delivers online cloud storage in a highly functional service offering. Most platforms are supported by Dropbox, including Windows, OS X and Linux, as well as mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. The service itself doesn’t offer many frills, though the non-free version offers the possibility of version history and file recovery (may be optional add-on depending on exact plan). Dropbox offers 2GB of free storage, while its paid Pro plan starts at $9.99/month for 100GB, $19.99/month for 200GB, and $49.99/month for 500GB. Its Business plan starts at 1TB for five users with centralized billing and admin tools.
