Is Dropbox the fastest? Nope.

OneDrive? Not even close.

Amazon Cloud Drive? Uh-uh.

Google Drive? You’re getting warmer…

Give up?

Google Cloud Storage

That’s right folks. I’m not talking about Google Drive. I’m talking about Google’s infrastructure cloud storage.

But you said “personal cloud storage”.

That I did. Not too long ago I thought the same: Google Cloud Storage is not a service that every-day people can utilize effectively. But, it is a brave new world out there. Infrastructure cloud storage is no longer locked away behind an API, where Engineering and IT are the only keymasters. Today you can sync to Google Cloud Storage as easily as you do any other consumer storage. Better, in fact, because it is balls to the wall, blazing fast.

Ludicrous Speed.. Go!

So, how much faster is Google Cloud Storage? I am just completing a comprehensive performance analysis of Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Box, S3, and Google Cloud Storage in 7 different environments. Below are a few examples from a forthcoming post detailing my results. In terms of average upload speed, Google Cloud utterly destroys everything, across the board. I mean, it’s not even close.

When comparing average download speed, the competition heats up a bit, but Google Cloud still comes out on top, thoroughly trouncing a good number of the competitors.

Tapping into this blistering speed is easy. You need just one thing: odrive.

Look at that! The cloud storage world just got a lot bigger. You now have the luxury of choosing storage according to your specific needs and use cases. You don’t have to lock yourself into the “prescribed” cloud storage choices, nor do you have to limit yourself to a single storage offering. Choose based on the merits of the storage, alone, and let odrive do the rest.
