Adobe CS6 offers customers a new subscription cloud service

Technology News Blog

It seems like everyone's offering a cloud storage service these days. Amazon's doing itDropbox is doing it, and Google is expected to announce a major new cloud storage option called Google Drive later this week. But there's a new company getting into the cloud game, and it's bringing a powerful sign-on bonus: Meet the Adobe Creative Cloud, a monthly subscription service that gives you access to 20GB worth of storage and the full CS6 software suite.

Essentially, this new service combines their existing software subscription model with a new cloud service. Without a doubt, Adobe's cloud is expensive: You'll pay $49.99 a month with a years' commitment, or $74.99 on a month-to-month basis. And for that huge sum of money, you only get 20 GB of storage out of the deal. But really, you're not paying for the storage, you're paying for full access to Adobe's Creative Suite of products including Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, InDesign, and more. Individually, these software programs sell for hundreds of dollars each; collectively, Adobe has slapped a $2,599 price tag on the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection.

Adobe CS6, the follow-up to the industry-staple Adobe Creative Suite 5, will be released later this month. The company will be introducing the software and cloud service at an online launch event later today.
