Bitcasa Infinite Drive Offers Unlimited Cloud Storage for £7 a Month

Storing your data in the cloud means you don't have to deal with physical solutions that take up space in your home. However, cloud storage isn't free, and the more data you have, the more it's going to cost you to keep it in the cloud. Bitcasa is hoping to make cloud storage a little more accessible to those with lots of data with its Bitcasa Infinite Drive.

Launched in the United States last December, Bitcasa offers unlimited cloud storage for a monthly (or yearly) fee. The company is now bringing its service to the United Kingdom and Europe priced at £7/€8 per month or £55/€60 per year. These prices will go up by 20 percent come August 31st of this year, so be sure to sign up before then if you're interested.

"Instead of having a hard drive, imagine if you could install software that acts as a virtual hard drive but literally never runs out of space, and you can instantly access and share that content on any device you own. This is Bitcasa," explained Tony Gauda, CEO and co-founder, Bitcasa. 

Bitcasa also announced a new mobile design along with performance updates and support for 10 new languages ( English-UK, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), Japanese and Korean). The service is currently available on iOS, Android, Mac desktop, Windows Desktop, Windows RT and the Web.

    First, according to their website its 10$/month or 99$ per year. Second, I would prefer some clear specification instead of the vague "infinite" or can we really make a backup of the 25 petabytes per year LHC data there for only 99$ per year? For sure they will limit it somehow, if not directly then by bandwidth.

    Well one of my home arrays is 36TB... I'd pay $100 a year to back that sucker up... :-) I need to see their privacy and encryption policies first though.

    The limit is your upload speed and bandwidth limitations imposed by a lot of residential carriers.

    I have Bitcasa Infinite Drive, now its showing "7,99 EB free of 7,99 EB"

    EB is Exabytes, you can look it up what that means! And I am actually using around 900GB now. Uploading really big files, like10GB+ can be a hassle (some fiddling and "babysitting" uploads) but for smaller files its easier.

    For unlimited cloud storage space you have to decide for yourself what is acceptable download speed if you need to recover files, cos no-one is going to download petabytes of data on a personal cloud storage...

    Would I recommend this service? Only if you get a special deal, cos they are still ironing out a lot of bugs, its still not smooth and robust (think Dropbox)....

    I agree with @Weierstrass ; plus I've actually tried them out, and they've throttled my bandwidth so I'm sticking with Zoolz Unlimited thank you very much, for $2/month , no capping no throttling no fishy stuff ;)

    I agree with both @weierstrass and SaraEZ1 ; misleading information seems to always get the attention of the press and i'm surprised at how many other highly credible websites publish the same information! I mean don't you do your research? I have tried the Zoolz Unlimited though and it's awesome! I'm sure how much i'm paying and how secure it is, plus it's actually cheaper !!
