Cloud Storage Comparison - Best Providers 2021

We've created a list of all major (and our preferred) providers, together with their prices using the region US-EAST-1 as reference.

If you're looking to store your data on a Cloud Storage Provider, you've got plenty of choices.

Prices are often changing and what each provider offer is different.
Once you know your needs in terms of storage/frequency of access (...), you'll easily be able to identify which provider fits you the best.

This list doesn't contain all the specificities each provider offers as we tried to summarize what most people are looking for when it comes to evaluating an Object Block Storage provider.

If you want to see any additional information in this comparison just let us know.
