Cloud storage wars just get even more fierce with each passing day. Joining Hive and Microsoft, Cloud service provider Amazon is also offering unlimited photo storage to its existing Amazon Prime users.
The announcement that was made yesterday will have Amazon users already subscribed to the provider’s $99 Amazon Prime services upload endless amounts of video and photo data. So technically not “free”. For $99, on top of unlimited storage, Amazon Prime members are eligible for free two-day shipping on any item, without a minimum-order balance. They also get access to one free Kindle book to borrow each month, use the streaming video service Amazon Prime Instant Video and they can stream music via Amazon Prime Music.
Amazon Prime members will now be able to store photos in their original resolutions to Amazon Cloud Drive from any device, including iOS, Android, and Fire phones and tablets, as well as Mac and Windows PCs. However, if you are not an Amazon prime member, you can still enjoy 5GB of free cloud storage using Amazon Cloud Drive, the companies web storage application. Additional space will cost £0.30 per gigabyte per year with upgrade plans at 20GB, 50GB, 100GB, 200GB, 500GB, and 1,000GB.
