Bitcasa vs SpiderOak
Last updated: April 25, 2016
Bitcasa Infinite Drive allows you to store, access, and share everything you've ever owned – every picture, every movie, every document, every song. Your personal cloud storage platform. Simple, private & secure, as much space as you need, for all your devices.
Online file storage that aggressively deduplicates data, allowing to save everything you upload, including all versions. They provide nice clients for Mac, Linux, and Windows. And they’re cryptographically secure from the moment your data leaves your computer - unless you hand over your password, even the folks who work at SpiderOak can’t see your data.
Face to face in the news:
2014 - Bitcasa ends unlimited storage plan to challenge SpiderOak
Cloud storage and backup service Bitcasa, that became well-known with low cost unlimited storage offer is scrapping this option entirely — claiming it’s not being used enough to justify the high costs of dealing with a small group of what it dubs Terms of Service abusers. The choices facing unlimited users of Bitcasa wanting to continue using its service are to drop down to a 1TB premium plan, costing circa $99 per year, or pay $999 for a 10TB pro plan. Since Bitcasa has increased the storage capacity of its pro plan — from 5TB to 10TB (to better accommodate those exiled from the land of unlimited storage) it has also increased prices for that plan. The monthly price was $49 and is now $99 for new subscribers.
