If the comparatively small amounts of storage offered by Western cloud storage and backup companies is running short, there’s good news, Yunio is now offering 1TB (1000 GB) of free cloud storage to anyone who signs up.
The Chinese rival to Dropbox, Yunio was formerly a Chinese language-only cloud company, that is now branching out into the international market. And it plans to facedown major rivals from the West with one simple weapon: massive storage.
Yunio Has Serious Features
Launched in 2011, Yunio works on every major computer platform (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux) and is also available on Android and iOS. To add a cherry on top of their 1TB cake, the company allows unlimited bandwidth usage, and features unlimited device sync and share functionality.
Yunio is seriously aiming to snap out the carpet from underneath everyone, and do so by offering plentiful, and then heaping some more on top of that. But these days, security and privacy are major issues when it comes to cloud storage. And although Yunio is offering SSL and AES-256 bit encryption technology to its customers, there’s no guarantee that the Chinese government or any other agency isn’t snooping around in people’s baby pics and rejected screenplays.
Yunio is as feature rich as any other cloud storage company, offering team folders, patented sync technology, secure public linking, auto-backup on mobiles and of course, the previously mentioned unlimited devices sync and extremely generous bandwidth caps.
Yunio VS Everyone Else
However, there is a small caveat to the 1TB of data Yunio is so generously providing. It comes at 1GB a day, so it adds on continuously as the user’s storage needs increase until it caps at 1TB.
However, keep in mind that fellow Chinese storage giant, Tencent, offers a whopping 10TB of free storage. With the same “it comes as you store” caveat that Yunio has.
Do you think companies such as Yunio and Tencent have made Western cloud companies look like a bunch of meanies? Is it time people shifted over to companies hailing from the East, for their storage and backup needs? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
