I'm creating an application that will connect online to a server to collect information. Since I'm trying to save money, I want to see if any of these free service (Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Amazon Cloud, etc.) could be used for server space. All I want is a space where I can have people connect to collect data. It's not much of a digital space so I didn't want to use any of the server space from a huge company. What would be the best option for me?

If you own your own business, you know how important it is to have plenty of space on your company’s server. Cloud storage makes it so much easier these days because content can be stored remotely in a specific amount of that the individual or company pays for. That storage space can be reduced or increased whenever necessary.

With that being said, it is absolutely possible to use free cloud storage for server space as long as the amount of storage within the cloud is sufficient for the needs of the server. In general, cloud storage is commonly used in servers and is the preferred type of technology due to its green values. Cloud computing limits destruction of the environment and uses less power. It is also easy to access and many users at once are able to quickly get the content they need.

    Yes it's possible. If you need more space then you need to pay.
