Amazon Cloud Drive comes to the UK: 5GB storage for all


Today Amazon has finally brought its Cloud Drive online storage and back-up system to the UK.

The cloud storage service has been available in the US for over a year now and UK users will be getting the same 5GB of free space through the service as our US counterparts.

Cloud Drive is compatible with both PC and mac and the Amazon Cloud Drive App offers enough storage space for around 2,000 photos, free of charge, while 20GB of storage costs just £6 a year. £320 a year will bag you a giant 1TB worth of cloud-based storage.

All sorts of media, be they documents, videos, music files or images, can be stored and shared through the service.

The Amazon Cloud Drive lands in a now busy UK market for cloud storage services. Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive and Apple iCloud all offer similar features.
