A client today asked me if I know anything about a cloud basec company called OpenDrive.
I believe my reply may be of interest to others as well... what do you think? Share your thoughts and experience in the comments below.
A quick look, it appears to be a good solution. I do not know anything about the company, it's longevity, etc.
As you likely know there are a number of solutions similar to this company.
I believe what sets companies apart is perhaps their history, their ability to stay in business (with your precious data), and what features they offer that would be important to you (remote access, sharing across devices, etc). If it were me I would also select a service that is platform independent... in other words that works on both Mac and Windows comptuers.
With the recent government crackdown on Megaupload, the provider in New Zealand accused of internet piracy - a lot of other innocent, law abiding folks had their data become unavailable , if only for a few days. I am afraid to say that the best option is to not only store precious data in the cloud with a reputable firm but also locally, on an external HDD (Hard Disk Drive) in perhaps a safe deposit box.
Anyway, that's my 2-cents -- what's your opinion, or experience with cloud-based storage?
