We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I am using the free solution, which provides me with 2GBs of storage, and for me, it's sufficient.""Its price is quite cheap. It is quite competitive. You just need to pay for the license. There are no additional costs.""You pay as you go, which is a good thing. There is a monthly fee, and you can also pay annually. This flexibility makes the subscription easier and affordable for some of us. I prefer yearly pricing, which is also slightly cheaper than monthly pricing.""It has some free features, but for some of the features, you need to pay. If you need more storage, then you need to pay. Its licensing probably is on a monthly basis.""I am on a monthly subscription for the solution and I am somewhat satisfied with the pricing. However, the price could a bit better.""There is a subscription-based pricing model and I pay monthly."
