Amazon is allowing people who sign up for its Amazon Cloud Drive service the option to pay for an unlimited amount of storage for photos, videos and other files.
Amazon has two subscription options for this new service. One offers an unlimited amount of space for photos, with 5GB of extra space for videos and other files, for $11.99 per year. The other option gives users an unlimited amount of storage for any kind of file for $59.99 per year.
Both options come with a free three month trial. Amazon says:
Prime members and Fire device owners who already enjoy unlimited photo storage can choose to sign up for the Unlimited Everything Plan to store videos and files in addition to photos. Existing Cloud Drive customers can change their plans now by simply logging into their Cloud Drive accounts.
This new move by Amazon puts yet another wrinkle in the ongoing cloud storage wars. Microsoft announced in January that it would offer an unlimited amount of storage via OneDrive for Office 365 subscribers. Those subscriptions start at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. Apple's iCloud has storage options for 200GB for $3.99 a month, 500GB for $9.99 a month and 1TB for $19.99 a month.
