With Amazon you can ship the drive and have them transfer it for a fee.

When talking about cloud storage it is always important to think about the security of your data. Therefore I highly recommend choosing Amazon S3 [1], they provide the most reliable service by now. Otherwise if you need high bandwidth you and short latency there might be other services to look into, but for the general purpose Amazon is the number one choice.
