Wired: When You Pay for Cloud Storage, You’re Only Paying for Convenience

Posted by ownCloud GmbH – 6. March 2014

Modern hunters of cloud-related bliss have an overwhelming number of solutions, ranging from basic and cheap to feature-rich and expensive. We chose two to look at here: the open-source system ownCloud, and the commercial service Dropbox. We tested ownCloud running on a cheap PC connected to a domestic broadband connection as our free solution. As an open-source project, the software is completely free. Dropbox is also free for most users, but offers a Pro service costing between $10 and $50 per month. This Pro service offers more space (100, 200, or 500GB) for an additional fee.
