Google drive storage pricing just release.

Being a built-in feature of the latest Windows systems, OneDrive does not require anything else to install. Its client app starts synchronizing as soon as the user is authenticated with the Microsoft account. The product is deeply integrated with MS Office suite and it simplifies saving of documents directly to the cloud.

Free storage space is just 5 GB, but OneDrive also has the Basic subscription plan, allowing to store 50 GB at $1.99 per month. If you also subscribe to Office 365, the storage limit will increase up to 1 TB per user.

OneDrive for Business is also available starting at $6.99 per user per month. This plan includes an SLA and certain versioning options for Office files only. The service supports iOS, Android and Windows-based mobile devices with storage limit starting with 1 TB per user. A free trial is available.

This Cloud Drive solution is the easiest option for Windows users and probably the best one for Office 365 subscribers. However, the lack of lifecycle management and special backup options make it inconvenient for business users.

Google Drive

If you have a Google account, you can already access Google Drive just by enabling the service. This offers 15GB of free storage space in total, although that capacity is shared with your Gmail account and Google+. There are also paid plans available offering a number of options between 100GB and a massive 30TB. Google Drive combines storage with some handy office tools including a word processor, spreadsheet application, and presentation builder. This means that, beyond just storing and accessing files, Google Drive is great for collaborative working.

You can access files from the Google Drive website, or use the desktop app to manage files from your computer. Changes made on your desktop will sync with the cloud so you will always see the most recent updates when you access them from elsewhere. Like other cloud storage services, Drive has iOS and Android apps for viewing and managing files from your phone. Drive is built into Google’s Web-based operating system Chromium, so if you have a Chromebook, Google Drive is an obvious choice for cloud storage.
