You must have heard of DropBox, Box or even SugarSync when searching for a cloud based storage solution. But have you heard of Bitcasa? Just like the previous named services, this service also offers a cloud based solution for anyone who wants to have a secure place to store their data. The only difference is that while other services impose a limit on the amount of data you can save, they don’t.
Yes, you read it right. There is no limit to the amount of data you can store on Bitcasa servers. The great thing about this is that it is free as of now. You can go ahead and register for an account and download their Android app on Google Play. This will allow you to upload all your photos and videos on your phone to your Infinite Drive. There’s also a client made for Windows based PC or if you are using Google Chrome you can get its extension. This allows you to access your data from almost any device be it a PC, smartphone or a tablet.
Some of the features of Bitcasa include
- Instant streaming, access everywhere
- Infinite storage
- Safe backup
- Easy content sharing
- Automatic data organization
Bitcasa CEO Tony Gauda said that “With our mobile app releases, we are now making all of your data easily available from mobile and PC/Mac clients while taking the security of that data very seriously. By announcing our cross-platform support today, we are offering our global users secure access on all computers, mobile devices, or Web browsers by streaming from the cloud while allowing them to keep the data they access more often localized on their hard drive.”
One of the interesting features of this service is that your data is stored in encrypted format. This means that the system itself will not see what data you have uploaded. This is actually a great way for the company to protect your files from unauthorized access.
For a limited time only this service is free to try out but will eventually cost $10 a month for unlimited storage. This is actually a cheap price to pay compared to what other services are offering.
