Inspired by the news that Google is
unifying storage across its products, Barracuda
Networks Inc.
announced a program increasing the amount of free
cloud storage for its Copy
users
from 5GB to 15GB.

Copy is an online file syncing, sharing
and storage service built on the Barracuda Cloud. Since its public
debut less than 90 days ago, it already is approaching half a million
users worldwide.

"We think Google's effort here
is great, and we are eager to join in by providing current and new
Copy users with a matching amount of free space,
" said Guy
Suter , GM storage, at Barracuda. "We believe people
deserve lots of storage to realize the full benefits of using the
cloud. They also should be able to control what files count against
their capacity. For our part, Copy's free space now at 15GB, our
awesome referral program, our incredibly low-paid storage plans, and
our 'Fair Storage for All' initiative are all aimed at helping people
do more amazing things.
"

Beyond the 15GB of free storage, users
also can benefit from the Copy referral program and the 'Fair Storage
for All' initiative:

  • Copy Referral
    Program
    - Users
    can earn 5GB of additional free storage for both themselves and the
    person they introduce to Copy for each referral, with no limit on the
    total capacity they can earn. The average Copy referrer has earned
    over 60GB of free storage, with the largest referrers earning space
    in the 10s of terabytes.
  • Copy 'Fair
    Storage for All
    '
    Initiative
    - Instead of counting data
    in shared folders against all members' individual storage quotas so
    everyone pays for the same data over and over, it
    allows users to 'split
    the bill' and
    control which files count against their storage capacity.

The service was created to meet the
high design demands of online and mobile users, and to provide the
security and features required for businesses.

Highlights of the service include:

  • Multiple device
    compatibility
    - It
    works across Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux computers and offers mobile
    device support for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and
    Android, with Windows Phone compatibility
    coming soon.
  • File
    sharing without limits
    – The
    service allows users to upload and share
    files of any size, including 1080p videos and raw photographs,
    without size limitations often found in email attachments. These
    shared files and folders can be sent to anyone either publicly or
    privately and accessed from any location or device.
  • Security
    - Data
    verification inspects data before it
    accepts it into the user's cloud storage. File-level ownership is
    verified prior to transferring anything to other devices. The
    service also allows users to share files
    privately using the built-in
    identify verification.
  • Company
    control
    – The
    service extends its cloud storage and
    sharing benefits into corporate environments with user and group
    management and added controls for proprietary company data.
