Data storage is a key challenge for businesses in the digital age. The world together generates large amounts of data every day. According to research conducted by DOMO, “Over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every single day.”

The question that arises now is where do we store all this data? There are so many free options that can meet individuals' needs, but what about the kind of requirements that businesses have? This is the reason why there are so many cloud storage services available on the market.
The wide range of tools on offer cater to both individual and business needs, and many of them offer great features. One such tool is MEGA. You may have heard of DropBox, which is an alternative to MEGA, but here's some information. MEGA is a cloud storage service created by Kim Dotcom, who claims to have made data security a number one priority. Data security at an affordable price is one of the main pros of MEGA. Another pro is that they are quite generous with their free plan. They offer more than 50 GB for free along with all the features which paid users would enjoy.
MEGA’s high security actually comes with a bad side. Users have to remember the encryption key. If you forget or misplace your key, you risk losing all your data as MEGA will not give you a new key. Another con is that other cloud services on the market are cheaper than MEGA's paid plans.
If you are not sure that MEGA is the tool for you, you can go through our alternative list to see if anything else meets your requirements.
