An interesting start-up was pitching this week at San Fran TC Disrupt event #tcdisrupt – enter Bitcasa – real time streaming and infinite data storage, a managed storage platform that boasts infinite data storage (at $10 per month) and a 100% guarantee. From the pitch at Disrupt… “It’s like a Flash player for data storage…”See http://www.bitcasa.com/
So what about Bitcasa? The team is chasing the same VC market that is apparently drooling over DropBox – BTW, DropBox is rumored to be seeking a valuation in the Billions$$ (yes, Billions) and according to the judges at TCdisrupt, the VC crowds are more than anxious to send cash their way… lots of it! So naturally, the competition is gonna flock to Silicon Valley as well – enter Bitcasa. The service promised by Bitcasa sounds impressive, with a promise of 100% safe and secure data storage, unlimited storage, all at a low monthly cost (I swear I heard them say $10 a month) it really does sound too good to be true (or to sustain).
The service boasts instant access from any device and any data duplication is managed from the server side for the client.
