Best web interface for online storage

I would like to purchase online storage so I need to choose which one. One factor will be price (obviously) but I am particularly interested in the ability to access stored files from any computer. So I really want to know which online storage service provides the best web interface for accessing, managing and uploading files. For instance, do you know of one that would allow me to upload folders and not just files?

Thank you for your help

Hi,

It depends on what data you want to store and how often you wish to access it.  

AWS S3 (https://aws.amazon.com/s3/) provides a highly durable storage service (99.999999999%), allowing you to upload files as big as 5TB with as much space as you need.  Pricing is based on how much space you use.
S3 Pricing - https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/

You will also be charged for how much data you take out of S3 too, so bear this in mind.

AWS Glacier (AWS Glacier provides) a 'cold' storage option, ideal for backups and data that you need to access very infrequently.  To retreive the data can take up to 3-5 hours provides a 'cold' storage option, ideal for backups and data that you need to access very infrequently.  

Both AWS S3 and Glacier allow you to upload folders as well as files

Data storage on AWS Glacier is very cheap, $0.01 per GB.

You can use CloudBerry Pro to provide an easy and simple interface between your PC and your AWS S3/Glacier account allowing to simply drag and drop, sync and move files.  I recently wrote a product review on this which can give you more information:

Thanks for your answers.
I don't think that Glacier would be any good because it takes hours to access files.
S3 looks good. Have you tried the web interface? Does it work well?
What about iCloud? I think that is a similar price for 200GB. I prefer Amazon's pricing - I don't like having to pay for 500GB when I have 201GB to store.
But...this is online storage for my daughter who uses a Macbook Pro and an iPad, so I was wondering if iCloud would hold any advantages for her???
Thanks
