Data Silo

With the variety of free or low cost options available, which one do you use?

Microsoft Sky Drive, Google Docs and Amazon.com are three that come to mind. But there will be other players.

I think a small business could safely store most of  it’s “must have” company data on services like Amazon or any number of players in the data silo market.

And look for the ongoing Data Storage Wars to continue to keep prices low.

Amazon s3


5 GB of FREE Amazon S3 storage, 20,000 Get Requests, 2,000 Put Requests, 15GB of data transfer in, and 15GB of data transfer out each month for one year.

Amazon’s price for additional space

Standard Storage

First 1 TB / month $0.140 per GB
Next 49 TB / month $0.125 per GB
Next 450 TB / month $0.110 per GB
Next 500 TB / month $0.095 per GB
Next 4000 TB / month $0.080 per GB
Over 5000 TB / month $0.055 per GB

I would be interested in how you calculate your data storage cost.
