I need some online storage options

I am on a volunteer board of directors for a small organization. We are all small business owners that try to get together and achieve the functions necessary for the organization. It is a fairly young organization so there are some growing pains and transition issues.

In order to try to smooth those issues, I'm looking for online storage to help centralize some of our information.

I'm looking to stay away from Dropbox/Google Drive etc that are popular and likely to conflict with what the other directors are already using.

There is some turnover through time, so I'd rather have online storage rather than backup/synching. The cheaper the better.

I've done a tiny bit of research, but I figured the collective brain of CP would be far better. Are there any good services out there?

Honestly, your question is kind of like asking which smartphone you should get that isn't an iOS or Android phone. Sure there are other options out there, but why wouldn't you use one of the two that are known to be the best?

Because to my knowledge you can't have 2 dropbox accounts. I think most of the other guys have these systems in place and wouldn't be able to use the one for the organization.

Am I wrong here?

And maybe I'm not understanding drop box properly, but doesn't it synch with a computer? Turnover dictates that the same computers aren't always going to be around. Maybe you can just get it established and it will be fine through transitions, but I'd prefer online only.

You don't need multiple dropbox accounts - you can share a folder specifically for your group that will exist within their other dropbox accounts.

You can add new computers or remove them at any time. You can't necessarily delete files off of an old computer remotely, but you can stop them from syncing immediately.

There are probably online options, but it's going to take a lot more work for people to upload a file that way compared to Dropbox or Drive, which in most cases means people won't be willing to use it as much.

Also, you can use Dropbox or Drive online only if you really want to. It's just more of a pain (though I doubt any more so than other options).

Yeah, I'm not sure why Dropbox wouldn't work for you. You can give specific people access to exactly the data you want to share. And it's not dependent on OS or even mobile device. The only question would be are you willing to pay for additional storage. But I'm sure that you could make a Dropbox solution work for you.

If price is a consideration, you could look into Mega. https://mega.co.nz/

50GB of online storage for free.

$12/month for 500GB.

$25/month for 2TB.

Very secure. I've been with them since the beginning. They've only been around since January, but it's steadily improved into a great product. It's now my favorite storage solution, and I have Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive, and iCloud as well. It's Kim Dotcom's successor to Megaupload, meant to be legal with a priority on privacy.

There's an Android mobile client, and should be an iOS mobile client within a matter of weeks. I use it quite a bit.

Any of you fellas use Carbonite? Not sure I'd recommend them without first having used their service, but it's definitely something to consider.

Pretty much what has been said. Dropbox is probably best for you.

Carbonite is a little different. It's really meant to be an online backup solution rather than a file sharing solution.

If you're wanting to have an online centralized, password secured areas where multiple users can dump and retrieve, I'd just hit godaddy for $7.50/month (unlimited data) and create a site.

Noted. I wasn't entirely sure how the service was best utilized. I really only use Drive and (previously) Dropbox.

Microsoft Skydrive is a good one too. 7 GB's of space. Plus the documents will be in word/excel/powerpoint, and can be opened using the web. Also, skydrive is basically like google drive where there is an app for your smartphone and iPad and computer. So everyone can sync all the time, but won't mess with anyone's google drive or dropbox. Also it's for FREE.
