When it comes to cloud storage for music, there are a few choices available at this time and its believed that the number of entrants are going to grow significantly. We’ve already heard about Apple’s iCloud and of course there is also Amazon’s Cloud Drive.
Amazon’s Cloud Drive has been looked upon as the equivalent to iTunes and essentially the way the service works is that you pay a user fee for which you have the ability to save music on an Amazon server (ie the cloud). This digital content is then available for you to listen to on any portable device that has a web browser and a network connection. Amazon has put in a lot of work in their service as well as responded to user feedback. In fact, one of the earlier complaints thrown against Amazon was that their service did not work with Apple products, but this has now been resolved, meaning that you can now use the Amazon service to listen to tunes on your iPad 2.
With cloud storage still a growing market, now is the time to try and attract customers to your service and this is what Amazon is trying to do with their new offer. Essentially, the deal breaks down to spend $20/year and you will be able to have unlimited storage space in which you can save your music collection. Any MP3 songs that you buy from Amazon can be saved in the cloud without counting against your quota.
