Box gives users an extra 5GB of personal cloud storage


Box gives users an extra 5GB of personal cloud storage. It’s largely focused on serving business needs, this is where it makes its money. Still, while Box’s bread and butter is the enterprise, the company does offer personal storage, and today Box users has double in size to 10GB. That’s twice the 5GB previously offered, which makes it a more spacious than other options like, Amazon Cloud Drive (5GB), Dropbox (2GB), iCloud (5GB) and SkyDrive (7GB). Only Google Drive, offers more which provides 15GB of space.

There’s also some good news for small businesses and folks who like to share their space in the cloud. Box has rolled out a new starter tier that delivers 100GB of storage and allows up to ten users for $5 a month. 100GB of web workspace for the price of a large latte? Even the smallest startups can afford that. Only last week Box updated the UI and widget and updated syncing on its desktop app for windows (32 and 64 bit) versions
