This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.03.01
Copy allows users to access, share and
sync files from anywhere, and from any device. It is the first cloud
storage service designed with both individuals and companies in mind.
Products and applications used in the
workplace are often determined by users who seek out well-designed
user experiences. This platform was created to meet the design
demands of those individuals and to provide security and corporate
features for businesses, which often own the sensitive information
being stored and shared.
"At Barracuda Networks, we
continue to see incredible growth in our storage and backup products,
which is our fastest growing business line, and Copy is provided on
the same secure global Barracuda Cloud," said Guy Suter, GM
at Barracuda Networks. "Barracuda is uniquely positioned as
both a security and storage company, allowing us to incorporate the
best of both into the Copy service. We built Copy to be equally
compelling to people, friends and companies."
Copy accounts provide 5GB of free
storage. With paid introductory plans starting at $99/year
for up to 250GB. It is a more affordable cloud storage offering
compared to iCloud, Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive,
Copy provides benefits
to individuals and companies like:
- Multiple device compatibility -
Copy works across Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux computers and offers
mobile device support for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and
Android, with Windows Mobile coming soon.
- File sharing without limits
- Copy allows users to upload and share files of any size, including
1080p videos and raw photographs without size limitations often found

- Security - Copy provides an
alternative to some other cloud storage services. Included data
verification inspects data before Copy accepts it into the user's
cloud storage. File-level ownership is verified prior to transferring
anything to other devices. Copy also allows users to share files
privately using Copy's built-in identify verification.
- Company control - Copy
extends its cloud storage and sharing benefits into corporate
environments with user and group management and added controls for
proprietary company data.
Copy is easy to integrate with other
technologies. Barracuda Networks also announced a strategic
relationship with Drobo that will extend Copy cloud storage
availability to Drobo 5N storage devices.
"This is a rapidly evolving
market and we're still in the early days," continued Suter.
"When you look beyond the personal or individual space, there
is a clear need for a more approachable, yet secure and scalable
corporate file sharing platform. Copy is designed to be the easiest
way to store, protect and share amazing things."
