Since the cloud computing revolution has made traditional storage look bad, Bitcasa went a bit further by rubbing in some salt in that wound. It’s basically a subscription-based storage service with no limits and a measly $10 a month fee. But wait, there are more details after the jump.
Bitcasa comes with software called, well, Bitcasa and once it’s installed and the payments are on the way, your files are now somewhere else. The plus side is the space out in ‘somewhere else’ is infinite. The downside is–actually the downside here is pretty seriously grave. More than one security expert and a few other reformed hackers have warned that cloud computing doesn’t offer much in protecting your precious data.
Anyway, all that infinite storage space should be some sort of ultimate incentive. Bitcasa is still in beta, however, and it might be a while before they officially release themselves from their cocoon. The startup is based in San Francisco and wants to upend bigger names like Google, Dropbox and Amazon with its unlimited storage service.
There are also quite a few drawbacks to the Bitcasa cloud storage service too. While you do get access to your stuff anywhere, it’s very likely that when you really need your files, that’s when you get cutoff from your connection. Seriously, this does happen.
