Hello,

Giants in cloud storage space like Google Drive, One Drive and few others are so big that almost every other cloud-storage user is using them. What do you think what are the opportunities for new or relatively young providers can do that will make users to switch from G drive to them.

1. Are you looking into cheaper price ?
2. Or prefer security over anything, ?
3. Or reliability is most important factor, you don't mind paying extra for it.
4. Anything other you may want to add ?

If businesses don't place security above all else, they'll place their mission critical data at risk and possibly in a worst case scenario their business itself. Of course, everyone looks for cheaper prices, but hard dollar savings will result in soft dollar headaches if the service isn't reliable. I think it's for this very reason, it's difficult for businesses to shift from the big guys to new players in that arena.

It means because there are already big and established players in market, new players will not have chance to survive or make impact ?

New players certainly have a chance to survive and make an impact, but they will face formidable odds. I'm all for new players in this industry.
