Bitcasa, the creator of infinite and secure storage across all devices, announced the availability of the new Infinite Drive™ across iOS, Android, Mac desktop, Windows Desktop, Windows RT, and the Web. For $10/month, worldwide users can enjoy infinite storage, anywhere access, and automatic backup with built-in client-side encryption to ensure privacy. During the month of February, Bitcasa will be offering special pricing of $69 for a year of infinite storage, a 30-percent discount compared to the regular pricing of $99 per year.
Bitcasa simplifies storage with the Infinite Drive, which works like a magic external hard drive that never crashes or runs out of space. Users can free up space by moving files from laptop and mobile devices into the Infinite Drive. Everything becomes instantly available across all devices regardless of device capacity or file formats. In addition, Bitcasa is fully encrypted client-side, which means that unlike other services, Bitcasa employees can’t access any data for any reason.
“When I started this company, I talked about faulty external hard drives and the outrageous fees for limited file synchronization services,” said Tony Gauda, Bitcasa CEO. “I believe — and many of our users will agree — that, with the launch of the Bitcasa Infinite Drive, hard drives are now dead. Our customers have stored more than 1.7 billion photos on the Infinite Drive, and this is just the beginning. Imagine a world where gigabytes simply don’t matter anymore. That’s Bitcasa.”
Everyday consumers are using Bitcasa all over the world to solve real-world problems:
Founded by former Mastercard and Mozy employees and backed by top-tier investors, including Horizons Ventures, First Round, CrunchFund, Pelion Venture Partners, Samsung Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, Bitcasa is redefining how consumers are storing and accessing their data. Bitcasa offers access to an Infinite Drive across all devices with support for iOS and Android, Web Access, Mac desktop, Windows Desktop, and Windows RT. Users never have to worry about running out of disk space again. They can save, access, and share an unlimited number of documents, pictures, music, and movies from any device. Everything is encrypted locally and backed up in the cloud, so user data is always safe and secure.
