What is Yandex?
Yandex is a free to use application that allows its users to upload their images, documents or files and save on Yandex cloud servers so you can access them wherever you are on any device. Yandex Disk also keeps your files secure with minimal effort from the users end and share them with your friends and family or whoever you choose.
The services yandex cloud offers are similar to Dropbox or Google Drive. Yandex Disk offers an initial 3gb cloud storage space which increases to 10gb upon installing the desktop client which is available on their website. This service also allows you to sync Your Yandex mail account so you can easily send and receive files via mail and keep them securely stored on your personal cloud.
Yandex is not only limited to web browsers or desktops it is also available for mobile devices. You can set up the mobile version to automatically sync your valuable data to the Yandex Cloud. This will make sure that you data is secured in the event that you lose your device or do not have access to it.

Where did it come from?
Yandex Disk is part of a large group of products from Yandex, which is a main search engine in Russia which is the prime contender to replace the default search engine on Apple devices being sold in Russia. Once uploaded to Disk, the files can subsequently be accessed from any internet enabled devices. Like the integration that we’ve seen from attachments.me to automatically save email attachments to services like Dropbox and Box, Yandex.Disk also automatically saves email attachments from users’ Yandex.Mail accounts — a service that is on top of that 10GB allowance. Yandex says it will be adding more of its own services to that list in the future.
Seeing how Yandex controls more than 60 percent of the search market they are in a position to provide services of epic scale.

My personal experience?
I have been using Yandex solutions for a while now, especially Yandex Disk. I use it for most of my daily needs such as transferring documents and larger files with my team and my family, it has allowed me to keep my professional files and my personal information separate.
More on the professional side, the service is faster than most that I have used and so far without any problems. I am amazed by what it offers and for the cost it is a steal. For most users the free version is enough and will suffice for most of their needs.
Would I recommend it to others?
The simple answer is yes. You have to use it to experience what it has to offer. It also integrates with other popular products and offers a seamless flow with other Yandex products. From security to reliability and ease of use, there is close to nothing that Yandex Disk cannot achieve in terms of cloud storage.
