SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2014 — / — Streem today announced the launch of its flagship product, Streem Drive, the first unlimited cloud storage and media streaming service.

Streem is a magic drive that never runs out of space. Consumers can put files into Streem, free up space on their computer and mobile devices, and instantly access their content anywhere, anytime. Streem integrates natively on every platform, with apps available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and Web.

“The amount of media people are accumulating is exploding, and we want to make sure consumers don’t have to think about running out of space for their videos, photos, and other cherished memories,” said Ritik Malhotra, co-founder and CEO of Streem, and 2012 Thiel Fellow. “We want everything to be seamless — from our native software integration to the unlimited cloud storage, so you don’t have to change your behavior to use Streem.”

Unlike other cloud storage services, Streem doesn’t require consumers to keep files stored on their devices, which have limited storage space. Instead, Streem stores a single copy in the cloud, and streams the file data on-demand when it’s accessed.

Files are opened natively on the device, requiring no special software, configuration, or any change in the consumer’s behavior. Large videos are instantly streamed using proprietary adaptive bitrate streaming technology, giving consumers the best possible quality without any lag, no matter the device or bandwidth.

Streem lets consumers easily share their media with their family and friends. Streem’s file streaming technology makes it so that everyone can instantly access shared content without having to wait for it to download or sync.

“I really like the fact that I can just store everything and never have to worry about it again,” said Tony Ho, an early beta tester of Streem. “Services like Dropbox might work for backing up small files, but Streem has been the best for storing and sharing gigabytes of videos. I recently took a bunch of photos and videos on my phone, shared them with my grandparents, and they saw them instantly — halfway across the world. It just works.”

Consumers can use Streem in many different ways:

• Store lifelong memories, including wedding photos, videos of a birthday party, and everything in between.

• Stream movie collections on a laptop or phone on the go, or even on a TV while relaxing on the couch — all without maintaining that pesky RAID array or NAS running in the closet.

• Create, edit, and share music and photos through Streem, making it easy to deliver content to millions of people.

Streem has native apps for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and Web, with support for Chromecast, Roku, and other platforms coming soon. The service will cost $20 per month, with annual subscriptions receiving a 15% discount. Streem is launching in a closed beta, and will be completely free for all users during the beta.
