CloudMe wants conscious customers who value quality, design and European privacy. Customers who appreciate that it is better to pay a little bit more than pay with your privacy.
Linköping, Sweden (EU) (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
In the competitive landscape of sync / cloud storage, CloudMe is aiming at consumers and small businesses who wants a modern, colorful and responsive web design – using the entire browser window. Customers who favor easy of use, European privacy and available features instead of blindly looking at price per gigabyte.
Founder Daniel Arthursson says, "CloudMe wants conscious customers who value quality, design and European privacy. Customers who appreciate that it is better to pay a little bit more than pay with your privacy."
Nevertheless CloudMe today announced price cuts as high as 25 percent. A small plan of 100 GB is available for 8 € per month, while the 500 GB business plan is priced at 30 € / month. The company is also offering up to 19 GB for free through its referral program.
CloudMe has been expanding and improving its in-house clustered cloud computing platform and data center during the last two years. The company goes against the stream by owning its hardware and building its own cloud stack on top of MapR.
"Long-term it is not a sustainable business to layer on top of Amazon, giving away free paid for storage bundled with low margin subscriptions, CloudMe have on the other hand kept the core business of storage in-house and not outsourced it, enabling better margins and European privacy for its customers", says Mr Arthursson.
The CloudMe service enables file synchronization between computers, smartphones, tablets and TVs. Everything from collaborating in a shared folder to having your mobile camera roll available on your tablet or TV.
