2016. Bitcasa will focuse on its platform business
Bitcasa is pulling out of consumer cloud storage to focus on its platform business. Users of the discontinued Bitcasa Drive cloud storage product have until May 20 to download their data. Back in fall 2014 Bitcasa nixed its unlimited consumer cloud storage offering, and appeared to be shifting focus towards the b2b space even then. It’s now evidently rethought the value of offering even higher-priced consumer cloud storage — doubtless as a consequence of fierce competition in the space with tech giants including Google, Dropbox, Microsoft and Amazon all duking it out to onboard as many consumers as possible.
2014. Bitcasa ends unlimited storage plan
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.
2014. Bitcasa is now housing customer data regionally
Cloud storage service Bitcasa is now ensuring that customer data is being stored in each region where the customer lives. This means European customers can sleep soundly at night knowing their data is housed on their continent, and the same goes for residents in other places as well. Having the ability to partition data in a specific region of the world is important so that customers can avoid any legal drama that might occur if the industry they are part of happens to be highly regulated, explained Taptich. Additionally, regionalized storage should make sending and retrieving information from the cloud a faster experience.
