Box

The box is a cloud computing business which provides file-sharing, collaborating and other tools for working with files that are uploaded to its servers. Users can determine how their content can be shared with other users. Users may invite others to view and/or edit an account's shared files, upload documents and photos to a shared files folder (and thus share those documents outside Box), and give other users rights to view shared files.

OneDrive

It allows the users to store files as well as other personal data like Windows Settings or BitLocker recovery keys in the cloud.
