Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
https://www.Backify.com launched an online backup service today. It offers 512 GB of free space for online backups, which can be upgraded to "Unlimited Space" for only $2.99 a month. Along with backups, it also provides a cloud storage service, similar to Dropbox.
Giving more details about the backup service, a company spokesman said that the service is very easy to use. "Create an account in less than 30 seconds and download the Backify software and install it. Once installed, the software automatically starts backing up your files to our safe and secure servers," he said.
Explaining the briefcase (cloud storage) service, he said, "When you buy the briefcase, the Backify software adds a Network Drive to your My Computer or Mac Finder, where you can drag and drop files. Install Backify software on all your computers and share and sync files between them. Access your files from anywhere, in a browser or on your mobile. Share a file/folder with your friends or Public, accessible from any browser."
Though none of the services offered by Backify (online backup and cloud storage) are new technology, however, the prices at which Backify offers them are totally unheard of. Backblaze, one of the leaders in the online backup market, offers an unlimited plan for $5.00 a month. However, 95% of computer users will never use more than about 300 GB of space for backups, and therefore can use the Backify's free 512 GB plan. If they need more space, they can always go unlimited with only $2.99 a month which is 40% cheaper than Backblaze.
Similarly, the market leader in cloud storage, Dropbox.com charges $10.00/month for 50 GB of space. Whereas, Backify is offering 512 GB of cloud storage for only $4.99/month. Power users can buy upto 2TB of cloud storage space for only $9.99/month. Similar to Dropbox, Backify has mobile apps, which can be used to stream music, movies or view/edit documents.
