They're $1.99 and $9.99 per month respectively

Google is heating up the online storage competition by slashing some of its Google Drive prices. 

According to Google's official blog, the company is cutting the price of its monthly 100GB plan from $4.99 to $1.99, and is majorly slashing the price of its 1TB plan from $49.99 to only $9.99 per month.

The 15GB plan remains free, while 10TB is $99.99 per month, 20TB is $199.99 per month and 30TB is $299.99 monthly. 

These are some great deals, considering Google Drive competitor Dropbox charges $9.99 per month for 100GB.  

"Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files," said  Scott Johnston, Director of Product Management at Google. "Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere."

RE: Why are people using cloud storage?

What my friends and I have been considering since we all are Server Engineers is enabling FTP on each others servers and then using friends machines as offsite storage.
If you're all server engineers, then you should be ashamed for mentioning FTP. I'll assume that was a typo and that you meant SCP, or some other encrypted file transfer.

I mentioned firing up Waste which uses 4096bit encryption key which is also an encrypted chat application. We also talk about using port knocking before the FTP port even acknowledges the FTP port is possible. Honestly I think its all being too phobic. Like my buddy who used IPX/SPX protocol for the longest time with a proxy because he felt if a virus infected his home environment then it wouldn't be able to replicate because of the lack of TCP/IP. Although he did get a lot of us to surf the web using a virtual machine.

Im not up for wearing tinfoil hats to keep aliens from reading my brain signals just yet. FTP can be secure enough you over plan these things and then they never happen.
