I work full-time as a teacher, but as I do more and more writing, I dream about what it would be like to move full-time into the free-lance ecosystem.
And then the nightmares begin.
But after the shaking and screaming stops, I do start thinking through, logically and carefully what I’d need to make this jump happen. Inevitably, cloud storage pops up into this list.
Now, I use Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud Drive—all at the free tier, of course. I’ve often wondered which service would be the best, which requires detailed research of numerous factors including prices, limitations, etc. Thankfully, NextAdvisor* has provided us with an infographic that offers us all that information.
iCloud Drive is the only service not listed here – that I’m aware of – but that’s primarily because it’s the most proprietary/walled-off of these services. Being an only Apple user, that doesn’t worry me, so I’m thinking about it. Of course, for a bit more money, I could go with Dropbox, which is much better at data-syncing than iCloud.
Sigh, you see how much there is to think about?
Hopefully, this infographic makes the process at little smoother for you.
