Amazon has recently opened a new cloud storage service in order to offer affordable cloud storage facilities to all types of users. The cloud storage facilities enable users to store files remotely via a web browser and to stream music from that remote storage back to their local devices using Amazon Cloud Player.

Whether you are a business, personal user or solo professional, there is a free account available for 5GB initial storage and a range of prices available for further storage.

Like any online backup solution, Amazon cloud storage offers you peace of mind if your computer is lost, stolen or crashes. It also offers a convenient way to access your files if you are away from home or on the go.

    Unfortunately, at the moment it appears to be only for U.S. customers. Bah. I'll try again later.

    Lifehacker did a pretty interesting comparison between Amazon Cloud, Dropbox, and Windows Live Skydrive. Here's the link: http://ht.ly/4pxXb.

    I love that it's a dollar per GB and year. Easy to remember and very competitive! Dropbox asks $19.99 for 100 GB per month, Amazon's price is less than half of that.

    I wonder whether Amazon offers or will offer a similarly painless uploading or even syncing procedure.
