Throw Away Your Hard Drives

Tokyo, Japan – 28 August 2013 – / — To fulfill growing worldwide demand for infinite storage across devices, today Bitcasa is officially launching its Infinite Drive in Asia. With localization in Chinese (traditional and simplified), Japanese and Korean, consumers can safely store and instantly access infinite amounts of photos, videos, music or share files without having to worry about capacity constraints. Bitcasa infinite storage is available on Windows, Mac, Android or iOS, Windows RT, and Web browsers on any device.

Tony Gauda, CEO and co-founder of Bitcasa, explained, “Instead of having a hard drive, imagine if you could install software that acts as a virtual hard drive but literally never runs out of space, and you can instantly access and share that content on any device you own. This is Bitcasa.”

By 2016, the average household will increase its digital content from 464 gigabytes to 3.3 terabytes. Bitcasa is solving this capacity challenge with its Infinite Drive, which provides no limits when it comes to keeping your precious content safe and secure, including family photos and videos, work documents or your entire media library—gigabytes no longer matter.

Tony added, “Japan is one of our fastest growing markets. Now with language localization and local caching consumers can enjoy an even better experience.”

Since its US beta launch in 2011, Bitcasa’s global user base has been growing steadily—12 percent of paying users are already based in Japan. To support the Asia market, Bitcasa has also added local caching in Tokyo to ensure fast file upload and streaming performance.

Additionally, Bitcasa recently announced a fresh new design for its iOS and Android application. To check out Bitcasa 2.0 on Android or iOS, see our video demo here.

What makes Bitcasa the first choice for users?

Bitcasa is designed to meet all your future storage needs. The Infinite Drive solves the real-world problems of storage shortage, data loss, and trapped user files:

  • Infinite Storage: Users will never run out of space no matter how many photos, songs or films they have. Users can also reclaim space on their devices by moving big files off to Bitcasa.
  • Vault Security: With client-side encryption, all files are encrypted before it leaves the PC. Not even the Bitcasa team can view user files – it is bank-grade security and ultimate privacy.
  • Fast Sharing: Sharing files has never been faster. With a simple ‘Send to Friend’ web link, recipients can click to start streaming any song or video, or view entire photo albums of any size – gigabytes simply no longer matter.
  • Infinite Back-up: Automatic back-up requires no effort on your part and ensures all your files are protected and have Infinite Versioning.
  • Simple Mobile Streaming: Files are no longer trapped on user devices. All files can be accessed on any device via a browser or Bitcasa app. Pick your song or video, and it is instantly streamed to your mobile device. That is the future of storage, simplified.

To celebrate the launch in Japan and Asia, Bitcasa will be offering a special 20-percent discount of $79 for a year of Infinite Storage to any new users in Asia. This special introductory price will be available through September 15, 2013 when users enter the promotional code: ASIA20.
