"Having our own infrastructure enables blazing fast transfers and low costs for our users, while keeping Filemail profitable for our shareholders", Filemail CEO Njal Gjermundshaug.
Oslo, Norway (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
The market of Web applications designed to help people transfer large files is very competitive. Up until now, most popular services such as SendSpace or Yousendit accepted files only up to 300MB for free. Just a handful, including DropSend, WeTransfer and the Norway-based Filemail, introduced 2GB limits. Now the race heats up again, as Filemail sets bar higher than it has ever been before – 30GB, with no registration required.
How is that possible? Filemail staff points to a proprietary global infrastructure, which makes them independent from big cloud providers and their pricing.
"Having our own infrastructure enables blazing fast transfers and low costs for our users, while keeping Filemail profitable for our shareholders", says CEO Njal Gjermundshaug.
CTO Stian Tonaas Fauske and CEO Njal Gjermundshaug, the original Filemail.com creators, believe this should help them reach out to whole new groups of users. A 30GB limit means that Filemail can now be used to transfer thousands of pictures, long uncompressed HD videos, 4K UHD content or even large disk backups. Sharing download links happens via private, person-to-person e-mails.
Together with introducing a new limit, Filemail also keeps expanding its list of additional features. Apart from an open API and a desktop application, the platform also provides Outlook and Thunderbird plugins that facilitate sending large attachments directly from e-mail clients. There is also a mobile app that lets users send large videos or picture libraries from their tablets or smartphones.
With plans to offer Filemail in 24 languages, and with a new highest-ever size limit, Filemail hopes to show many new users, that cloud drives are not always the best solution for sharing data.
