Consumer vs. Professional Cloud Storage

Learn pros and cons of the best cloud storage solutions for home and professional usage

Whether at work or at home, storing your digital assets is necessary, whether you need to save family photos or work documents. In response to these digital requirements, cloud data storage has become a popular option as it ensures the data is available when needed, regardless of location.

In this whitepaper, we analyze the differences between so-called professional cloud storage, e.g. Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Wasabi, Backblaze, and customer cloud storage solutions (Amazon Drive, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive).

We discuss:

  • Cloud storage solutions' benefits and concerns
  • Comparison in terms of pricing, security, data management, etc.
  • Advantages of cloud storage newcomers: Backblaze and Wasabi

Please note:

We don't recommend consumer cloud storage for business use. MSP360 Backup no longer supports Amazon Drive, Google Drive or OneDrive.
