I’ve been looking online for a service to suit my needs but it seems a lot of people are confusing the terms and it’s starting to make my head spin a bit.
Basically, I’m a Photographer / Film maker and I travel a lot. So I need a service where I can:
1.Upload Large Video and Sound Files for download by my Editor, (inc. Abroad to UK).
2.Upload Large amounts of photos for download by a client.
3.Somewhere I can back up old files which I no longer want cluttering my laptops’ hard drive but if I ever need them can be downloaded easily.
I don’t really need to “Sync” any devices
And most of the time I don’t need “backup” in that what is on the server is an exact copy of what’s on my computer.
So for example I’m making a documentary across the USA and I have about 100gb free storage most times on my Macbook, but I need to send the files to my editor who has a few TB of storage but he’s in the UK. I just want somewhere I can put the files, then I can delete the one’s on my laptop, and he can download them and delete them off the “cloud” or whatever.
I’m willing to pay around £10/ /month for the service, I’d probably prefer to pay because if you pay for a service the customer support and security etc is normally better.
So considering this what is my best option?
I hope you see what I mean.
Thanks in adv.
I know there are many companies right now providing cloud services, which can cause confusion. While selecting look for the price offered, security measures, backup offered by them. Also take into consideration the tech support and compatibility with different OS.
