Although there are a number of file sharing & storage solutions available these days, it's not easy to rely on just each of these solutions as there are security related risks involved. However, when its about optimum security, there can't be a match for Amazon's Zocalo. Designed for enterprise use, Amazon's Zocalo offers secured document storage & sharing to users. Surprisingly, the news for Zocalo's launch came at the time when Dropbox made the announcement for increased storage and lowered pricing.
Amazon's Cloud Storage Solutions : Competitors & Pricing
Zocalo specifically aims the enterprise users, several of whom are still going for the on-premise solutions. Its also to a large extent a potent threat to consumer-first services such as Dropbox. However, Zocalo is not the only Cloud based storage service from Amazon as the renowned company also provides Amazon Cloud Drive, a consumer-grade service that offers the advantage of integrating with a company's Fire phone. Amazon Cloud Drive is a big threat to Google Drive. As for pricing, aggressive price points have been one of the highlights of Zocalo. A user will receive 200 GB storage under a 30 day trial period. However, monthly charges have also been set to approximately $5 for 200 GB.
