This week RapidShare has launched a new product called RapidDrive which has its sights firmly set on taking a slice of the cloud storage market, from applications such as SkyDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox to name a few.
The new cloud storage competitor from RapidShare provides users with cloud storage and file synchronisation, and is currently in its beta stage of development.
The new RapidShare service currently only allows RapidPro customers to manage files using Windows Explorer, making it easier to share and backup import documents to the cloud.
At the moment RapidDrive supports Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, but versions for additional operating system are expect to arrive in the future. Alexandra Zwingli, CEO of RapidShare explains:
“With RapidDrive, we are providing a tool that creates an even closer link between cloud storage and the PC environment, which makes it easier to manage files. RapidDrive is an essential means of simplifying work processes, especially for customers who are regular users of RapidShare at work.”
