Established by Kim Dotcom, Mega offers up to 50GB of storage for free, which stands head and shoulders over the paltry offering of most cloud services. It is run from Auckland, New Zealand, and the company alludes to a greater focus on privacy than competing services. Mega doesn’t offer many frills in the form of file versioning or streaming, though it does offer the ability to share uploaded files. Stored files are encrypted on the service with AES, and Mega supports access from iOS and Android devices. The service is known to be a tad on the slow side, however, though this has improved since it was launched earlier in the year.

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.
