TL;DR;

Why cloud storage

When you have important data, just keeping one copy of this data is not enough. You can make sure to have enough backup (using something like the 3–2–1 rule) or you can use a cloud storage solution. A cloud storage solution is ideal because the provider will make sure to have a good backup strategy. And they can distribute the fixed costs on many clients, lowering the cost for yourself. You can even get some free storage space with some of these providers and you can buy additional space as needed.

Which Cloud storage providers

There are many cloud storage providers, like Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive. The one I’ll talk about today is MEGA. All these providers offer some basic space storage: with Google Drive, you get 15 GB free; with Dropbox, you get 2 GB free; with Microsoft OneDrive, you get 5 GB free. But with MEGA, you get 50 GB free! That’s more than all the other I mentioned combined and that’s ideal to test out their product and decide for yourself if you like it.

Why MEGA

MEGA has all the features a cloud storage solution should have, but on top of that, they also encrypt all your data with a password you provide. So even if someone gets access to the drive or the files on their server, as long as your password is good, they won’t have access to it!

As opposed to this, when you use products like Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive, they will scan your files and sell this information. You can find more information on this here: https://vpnoverview.com/privacy/social-media/what-does-google-know-about-me/. On top of this, law enforcement can ask google to have access to this data. You can find many articles on the subject with this search: https://www.google.com/search?q=law+enforcement+using+google+data.

MEGA’s prices are comparable to the other providers and they won’t (and can’t) scan your data. They also offer affordable business plans.
