Public API Offers Endless Creative Possibilities for Developers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – November 19, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Bitcasa, the company that makes your digital belongings infinitely useful, today launched its Developer Program with the release of the Bitcasa Secure Storage API. The API gives mobile and desktop apps an easy-to-use, full-featured, and device-independent storage layer.
“We want to make storage simple again in a multi-device world,” said Brian Taptich, CEO of Bitcasa. “We’re excited to see how developers will leverage our pervasive storage platform to backup, sync, stream, and share content, regardless of device or platform. The Bitcasa Secure Storage API offers developers a powerful way to access and share content via all mobile, web, and desktop apps.”
Simplified Secure Storage
Key features of the API include:
Security – Designed using encrypted block-based storage with AES-256 encryption, Bitcasa ensures complete user privacy.
Access & Sharing – Any uploaded content is immediately available on all devices without syncing. Upload once, then access and share instantly.
Instant Streaming – Optimized for media streaming, Bitcasa allows any content to be streamed without having to download first. A familiar file and folder organization allows content to be streamed in their native format.
Availability – SDKs will be available for Java, Python, PHP, Ruby, and .NET.
Plex Cloud Sync – A media app that manages all of your personal media, Plex Cloud Sync is using Bitcasa as part of its Cloud Sync media storage and streaming solution. Users can stream their movies, photos and music to any device without the hassles of proxies and firewalls.
Kloudless – A cloud storage service that integrates Gmail with Outlook, Kloudless has created a Bitcasa plugin that enables the secure storage and automated management of email attachments. By giving users access to cloud storage from within their email inboxes, Kloudless makes it easy and intuitive to securely share cloud files.
Otixo – A service that aggregates many popular cloud services into a single app for managing files, Otixo is integrating the new API to create Otixo “Spaces.” This enables users to easily share, track and comment across files and folders with multiple people.
Taptich added, “Our unique approach to secure cloud storage provides a great platform to build on, and we anticipate many will use our API to deliver new personal productivity, media, and collaborative applications.”
The Bitcasa Secure Storage API will initially be available in open beta form, with general availability expected in Q1 2014. Developers interested in registering for the Developers Program open beta can visit http://developer.bitcasa.com
“Bitcasa’s API is a technology that will enable Kloudless to drive strong, sustained user engagement from within their inbox, especially with users who need to handle rich media files,” says Eliot Sun, Co-Founder and CEO at Kloudless. “As streaming video, high res graphics, animated gifs and other large file types continue to be shared, users will look to a solution that enables them to access and share that content. Connecting one’s email to Bitcasa is a natural solution.”
“We’re thrilled to bring Bitcasa into our family of more than 30 cloud services. It’s been one of the most requested additions to Otixo for the last year by our users. The API is well documented, the support has been great, and it’s been a snap to integrate,” says Shannon Thomas, CEO at Otixo.
