What is CloudMe?

CloudMe offers cloud storage and file synchronization services. It is owned and operated by CloudMe AB, a Swedish company, and has its servers operated in Sweden. It was founded in 2012 by Daniel Arthursson.

Initially, it was named iCloud.com but had to change it since Apple acquired the domain for a reported amount of 4.5 million US Dollars.

  • CloudMe has cloud storage and sync solution that allows users to store, access, and share their stuff with one another and those who aren't using the service. Email, text messaging, Facebook, and Google are all options for sharing.

  • Files can be saved in a blue folder that syncs across all linked computers and devices.

  • CloudTop.com is a web desktop and cloud OS service that uses CloudMe as its internet file system. They offer 3GB of free storage for their users and can be expanded to 5TB for businesses with client-side encryption.

What is MEGA?

MEGA is a cloud-based service that can be accessed from any device or platform with Internet access. MEGA was created on January 20, 2013, exactly one year after the US government infamously destroyed Megaupload.

It was formed by Kim Dotcom, Mathias Ortmann, and Bram van der Kolk, the same guys who founded Megaupload. Dotcom excelled at marketing and fundraising despite not being engaged in MEGA's design or technical execution. He sold most of his shares and stood down as a Director within a year to pursue new interests.

  • MEGA is one of the safest clouds available since it uses 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) key derived from your password to encrypt and decrypt your files and folders. This means that when a user uploads a file, only the user, not Mega's servers, may decrypt the data. It also contains a security feature that requires two-factor verification, making it safer to use.

  • MEGA offers 15 GB of permanent free storage and up to 50 GB of storage space including 35 GB of temporary storage to its users. They also provide users with features such as file sharing, file versioning, and secured shared links that open with a key.

  • MEGA also offers their applications across all platforms and has a maximum storage space of 16 TB.

  • Clients are also provided with annual transparency reports.
