Dropbox to Google Drive Transfer App


Cloud in simple language means to use someone else’s computer to perform specific operations. Some companies may lend you their computer servers to store your data. Other companies may lend their servers and network infrastructure to anonymize your Internet identity and keep your browsing private and secure.

After the emergence of numerous cloud storage services such as Dropbox and Google Drive, people are increasingly relying on them for their data storage needs. There are immense benefits. Cloud storage is massive, compared to traditional hard disk storage. A reputed cloud storage service typically encrypts your confidential information while it is under transit, and even after it is stored on to their servers. Cloud facilitates real-time synchronization between devices and collaboration between teams. Your cloud provider periodically backups your data across multiple data centers in the event any data center suffers an unanticipated disaster. And not to forget, most of these cloud services are typically cheaper compared to hard disks and SSDs.
