The DigiBoxx cloud storage platform will only be available on web platforms and Android for now, and soon will be available for the iOS app users. DigiBoxx claims to provide advanced security features such as SSL file encryption, integration with famous app Gmail and multi-user, real-time file collaboration, and much more. In the free Digiboxx plan, users can simply register with their email address mobile number, and get access to free 20GB of cloud storage space. The free plan lets multiple ‘external’ collaborators, which means that users without even having DigiBoxx accounts will also be able to access the shared files with them via the platform. In the free plan, the maximum upload size per file will be limited to 2GB only, while Gmail integration and real-time file collaboration will be added to the service soon.
In the paid plans, individual users will get up to 5TB cloud storage space with 100GB per file size upload capping, with other features remaining the same as in the free tier. For company’s and enterprises, DigiBoxx service will be available for up to 500 collaborators and unlimited external users, along with 50TB maximum storage allocation.

DigiBoxx is also offering custom cloud storage plans to larger enterprises, with requirements for over 500 users, configurable total storage size, no per-file size cap, optional platform training and more.
Some users reported that there are issues with the service, such as too much of waiting time in generating OTPs while registering on the cloud storage platform. The user interface of Digiboxx resembles the interface of Dropbox, and with highly competitive pricing plans, it remains to be seen if India’s own cloud storage provider DigiBoxx manages to give competition to market players like dropbox, one drive and achieve nation wide adoption among individuals and enterprises.
