Provider % of all usage Dropbox 80.8% Google Drive 14.5% OneDrive 4% Box 0.7% The report measures the distribution of all cloud storage users among Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Box. The distribution is calculated by analyzing the usage of API integrations among CloudRail powered mobile apps. This means that the four analyzed providers are integrated in a 3rd party app to provide additional functionality like e.g. access of files for modification in the app or backup of app data. The user of the app has the free choice which of the four providers to use. Considering that apps are usually accessing data which is already stored within the cloud provider, this is a clear indicator which provider users use for other purposes as well.
CloudRail provides products and solutions for software developers to easily integrate all four cloud storage providers via a unified, single API. Code once, access all. Developers and enterprise customers from all industries rely on CloudRail to power the integrations in their apps.
