iCloud launches iCloud Premium complete with 100GB online storage.

Online storage and “cloud” services are all the rage these days. With business looking to cut costs and move data storage offsite as well as consumers looking for easier and more convenient ways to share/store their information for easy accessibility may have found iCloud’s basic package at 3GB total storage a bit anemic. But the great thing about iCloud was that it wasn’t just about storage. Web apps covering multiple spheres including work and play allow consumers to get their work done and their time passed all via the convenience that a cloud based service can offer.

While the web apps and desktop in the cloud experience are certainly talking points, the real excitement for today’s announcement is the launch of iCloud Premium. Said service now offers customers a full 100GB of online storage so that users can store pretty much anything they want via the cloud. While HD movie buffs and music aficionados still won’t find ample storage for their digital collections, I’d wager a guess and say 80-90% of the general population will find the 100GB limit more than ample enough.

For those mobile warriors in the truest sense of the word, mobile devices are also supported in varying degrees depending on the mobile platform — specifically the iPhone, Android, and Windows Mobile. I haven’t personally used iCloud yet on a mobile device so if anyone is willing to chip in a few words it would be more than welcome.

The 100GB iCloud Premium will cost $39.99 per year over the Basic 3GB plan’s price free entrance point. But for those honestly needing the extra space tied together with a robust allotment of web apps will find a winning solution with iCloud.
