Brian E. Taptich, former CEO of Bitcasa, Inc., wrote:

Bitcasa is no more, and this is not bad news.

Thanks to the very hard work, generosity and persistence of a number of folks - from employees to investors and advisors - Bitcasa and its platform have become a part of something much, much bigger.

We have no doubt that Bitcasa has found the right home to fulfill a mission that has driven the company from its 2011 beginnings - to eliminate the storage and computing limitations of your connected devices, however small, in the most secure and efficient way possible.

We remain optimistic that, before long (and though you may not realize it), Bitcasa's technology will yet contribute to fulfilling this mission.

Looking back, it seems impossible to simplify a Bitcasa experience that, at times, felt so complicated. Though only alive for roughly four years, Bitcasa saw many highs and many lows: From TechCrunch Disrupt and Infinite Storage (and then something less than Infinite Storage) for consumers, to CloudFS for developers and the Device Economy ... from Mountain View to San Mateo to San Bruno … across North America and Asia and Europe and the Middle East - all of which seemed, even for a well-funded Silicon Valley start-up, disproportionately more public and dramatic than is typical.

Our hope is that everybody in the Bitcasa extended family - including our partners and end-users - feels as if they reaped some benefit, however small, from this remarkable and intense experience.
