IDrive’s express service provides quick and easy data backup and restore to Linux users

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2013 — / — IDrive Inc., a leader in cloud services, today announced that its IDrive Express service is now available for Linux distros. The Express service uses a physical drive to ship large amounts of data to and from customers, for backup and restore, to eliminate bandwidth congestion and provide a faster data upload/restore process.

The online backup provider has been offering the IDrive Express service (free of charge to both business and personal users) to its Windows and Mac users since this past August. IDrive Express provides faster data backup and retrieval and is optimal for customers with large amounts of data. “We wanted to provide the same simplicity and effectiveness to our Linux users as well,” says Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive.

Due to the complexity of Linux operating systems, many companies don’t offer features or services that are compatible. However, the increase in popularity for Linux, as well as customers’ need for efficient data backup and restore services, made IDrive’s decision to expand the express service to other operating systems an obvious endeavor. “We’ve made it a priority to provide our Linux users with the best cloud backup and data retrieval services possible,” Kulkarni adds. “We want to offer all of our customers the opportunity to benefit from our trustworthy, easy-to-use, and secure features.”

The IDrive Express service is free once a year for Pro Personal and three times a year for Pro Business users. After that, the service costs $59.95, with shipping costs included. Data is protected with 256-bit AES encryption during shipment and storage and, for another level of protection, users have the option to use an NSA-proof private key. The IDrive Express service can be utilized for data backup or retrieval, up to 1 TB, within the United States only.
