    "If you need a trustworthy cloud service, and I am sure you do, choose pCloud for your home and business. I use many devices - a couple of computers at home and at work, a cloud MFP, a home server, a smartphone and a few tablets. For me it was important to have all my files available any time on all my devices. I have tried many cloud services but almost each one of them had some restrictions in terms of space, traffic or sharing options. I was looking for a better service that offers plenty of storage, version history, secure folder, team sharing, lots of monthly traffic, etc. Price was not a concern, I was looking for an integrated solution that works on different platforms and performs automatic backups, easy to use web interface and a decent Windows and Android app. Then I found pCloud. Then I found their industry-first lifetime plan. I solved my backup and cloud storage needs once and for all."

    "Working in IT I've tried to use many of the available cloud storage services. Tresorit stacks up pretty well with the popular options out there and I tend to favor Tresorit a little bit more. Although it's not as popular of an option it has provided pretty reliable services for my department so far. I believe in it's security and encryption as it seems pretty solid. Data transfer and available storage is also very good across the board. Pricing is reasonable for me and I think if they keep on improving on their services they'll have something really good and be a true competitor as one of the best cloud storage services."

    "There are more and more options for cloud storage these days, but few offer the flexibility and security of Owncloud. As so much tech becomes increasingly centralized, I have been working on using more open source software in my life and thus was really excited to find a cloud storage solution that was community-developed. Being able to maintain my own host makes me feel far more secure and private than with other data storage companies, and simple file editing support provides all I need to replace similar services that have left me feeling vulnerable to the whims of the tech elite."

    "This is a great solution (virtual desktop)specifically built for small and medium-sized businesses to securely host their business data & applications in the cloud and render them to end users via web browsers (no-plugin required). Business data never resides on employees personal devices because every data is securely stored in the cloud. It doesn't require any technical knowledge to setup the VM and add employees to the workspace. The dashboard is pretty simple to navigate. I can say that this is the simplest solution for any small business owner who wants to move the IT infrastructure to the cloud."
