Does anybody use this?
Last fall, I was looking for a cloud storage service that only charged you for the amount of space that you use. Contrast that with, say, the Google Drive or new Dropbox model of $9.99 for 1TB.
I decided to go with Google's Cloud Storage because you pay for what you use.
There's a few things I'm conflicted about with it, though.
1. Cloud Storage seems set up for developers hosting massive amounts of data. The service can have APIs hook into it. Basically, it looks way more complicated than what I need.
2. But, these new pricing models are becoming really freaking good, depending on how much space you need. I'm uploading lots of video I record at martial arts seminars. I wasn't coming near to 1TB (and I'm still not), but...
3. How much of a pain in the ass is it going to be when I need to transfer off Google Cloud Storage to another service? At some point, I'll be a sucker for paying for what I use when it's more than 1TB, and then I should just be using Google Drive or Dropbox.
Oh, what the hell? By the time I get there, a new pricing model will rule the world. Maybe I'm safe on Cloud Storage, after all.
