Amazon Cloud Drive Launches New Unlimited Storage Plans for Canada

Amazon has announced today two storage plans for its Cloud Drive offering in Canada (surely this news will get lost in Apple headlines).

These new options come with free three month trials, then you’ll get charged the following:

  • Unlimited Storage Plan for $59.99 per year: this gets you unlimited storage for any files, whether its photos, videos, documents, movies, music and more. It also includes auto-save from mobile devices, automatic content backup from a computer and access to content at full resolution from any connected device.
  • Unlimited Photos Plan for $11.99 per year: store unlimited photos to Cloud Drive, upload existing collections; includes 5GB for videos or other documents and files.

Josh Petersen, Director of Amazon Cloud Drive, said in a statement “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.”

Prime members who already get unlimited photo storage can get the option to sign up for the Unlimited Storage Plan. Just last year, Amazon launched a dedicated Cloud Drive for iOS app to view all files and folders.

Dropbox Pro costs $129 CAD per year for 1 terabyte (1000 GB) of storage. Amazon’s unlimited storage plan costs just under half that amount. If you need pure cloud storage, this is just another option to consider.

    Problem is how do I transfer my 250gb files pics and videos from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud. Don’t have the patience to upload all that data again. #TakeAgesToUpload. Other than that thanks Amazon for giving an Unlimited Cloud Storage option at much much much better price than all the others in the same business.
