A look at... Cloud Storage Services




Brief introduction

Today, free cloud storage is easily available for smartphones, tablets and desktops. However, not all services are Linux compliant, like Google Drive.
If GNU/Linux is your preferred OS, you will need a provider that is fully compatible with your favourite operating system. It was in this sense, that I selected two cloud storage services that provide full integration and support for GNU/Linux..


pCloud
10 GB free storage





pCloud is one of the cloud services, that is a available on all major platforms including: Linux, Windows, OS X, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. 

pCloud provides desktop client for GNU/Linux systems, with 256-bit AES encryption for all files and uses TLS/SSL encryption to encrypt information during transmission from the user’s client to the cloud. Stored information is also encrypted, and their data centers are monitored to avoid potential attacks and infrastructure failure.
Unfortunately, pCloud only offers Crypto, a End-to-End encryption, with an additional fee ( starts at 4,99 € Monthly ).

        Mega
        50 GB free storage




        Mega is an efficient cloud backup service that features high speed and an extremely easy-to-use client. Through the interface, you can manage your file and share them with your friends and team members.

        This cloud service, provides a desktop client for GNU/Linux systems, MEGAsync, with End-to_End encryption, witch only you will have control who has access to your data, even Mega can't access it. Another noteworthy observation, is that Mega has published the full source code for client applications, for independent verification and integrity of the encryption model and its implementation.

        Mega, also helps to keep all your photos, music and files on the 50 GB of free storage, which is by far the most free storage space offered by a cloud service.
