Storing your data in the cloud is really in right now. Accessing your documents from anywhere, on any computing device, is the future of modern computing. Its for this reason alone that I really like Amazon Cloud Drive. With it, you can do just that – get your data where you need it, when you need it from any supported, connected device, with just about any operating system. This multiplatform, universal tool should be on your list of must have apps.
Amazon Web Services is one of the most trusted names in cloud storage. It powers Amazon Prime’s video on demand service and Amazon’s Cloud Player, and now can power your universal storage needs, too. Cloud Drive securely stores your photos, videos, documents and other digital files. Though its Cloud Player and Cloud Drive are now thankfully separate services, you can still upload music to Cloud Drive for storage and backup. However, if you want to play it from anywhere, you will also need to import it into Cloud Player.
To get started, all you have to do is install Cloud Drive on your computer. Then move files to your Cloud Drive folder. The app will copy the data to your Amazon Web Service powered Cloud Drive. From there, you can access your files via a web browser, or on any other computer you install Cloud Drive on. The app will sync files to and from every instance of a compatible device where you have the software installed and your account connected to it. If you make changes to your files, Cloud Drive copies the files up to your account and then down to every device the software is installed on.
Like Dropbox, Google Drive or other service Amazon Cloud drive makes your files accessible from just about anywhere on just about any device with either the software installed or through a web browser. With 5GB of free storage to start you off, and reasonable prices for additional storage, it’s easy to get started with one of the most trusted vendors on the internet today.
