Apple’s iCloud cloud storage comes with 5GB of free space, though this is used for a variety of uses such as photos, documents and as a backup repository. Upgrading this space costs $20/year for an additional 10GB, $40/year for 20GB, and $100/year for 50GB. Note that, due to how Apple ties its services to the iCloud, its storage capacity works differently from that of most other cloud services. For example, users who sign up for iTune Match can upload up to 25,000 songs that do not count toward the storage limit in iCloud. Indeed, it is not possible to access files in the iCloud on a traditional file system, but only through Apple devices.

Confused by the many cloud storage services out there? It used to be that we could choose among only a handful of cloud storage services, all of which offered basic file storage services. The proliferation of the cloud and the BYOD phenomenon have sparked a high level of interest in storing data online, however.

Today, many established cloud storage services can be easily counted, many of them offering advanced collaborate and synchronization capabilities. Here, we take a closer look at 12 cloud storage services that you can deploy for work and play.
