Amazon has today announced some new changes to its cloud storage service Amazon Cloud Drive.
These changes are important because with it Amazon are finally catching up with their competition and are offering an unlimited storage option.
This new plan for Amazon Cloud Drive will allow customers to pay a yearly fee for unlimited everything storage for $60 a year in the US, which is about £40 in the UK.
They also announced an unlimited photos-only storage option which has been set at $12 a year, or about £8 in the UK.
The Unlimited Photos Plan will also include 5GB of additional storage for other documents and files that the user wants to store on Amazon Cloud Drive.
“Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. And, they don’t know how many gigabytes of storage they need to back all of them up,” said Josh Petersen, Director of Amazon Cloud Drive.
“With the two new plans we are introducing today, customers don’t need to worry about storage space—they now have an affordable, secure solution to store unlimited amounts of photos, videos, movies, music, and files in one convenient place.”
Customers who currently have an Amazon Prime subscription, or own a Fire will already have unlimited photo storage as part of their plan.
New customers can also grab a three-month free trial of the new plans in order to give the service a try before shelling out their cash.
As of yet it looks as though the new plans are only available in the US, given that the information for them is only available on the Amazon Cloud Drive US site, and their UK based site has yet to be updated, however we expect that the new plans will be rolled out to all the territories in which Amazon Cloud Drive operates soon.
