A new cross-platform cloud-powered data storage system that is being funded partly by a Kickstarter campaign has been unveiled by startup Cloud-Clout. The system is designed to encrypt and fragment user data across multiple, geographically dispersed servers in order to provide full security and protection.
The company is funding final development of the storage platform via a Kickstarter campaign, and is trying to raise $50,000. Once complete, the platform will take advantage of an array of independent clouds in an effort to prevent data loss and ensure accessibility. The solution works by ignoring broken and slow servers and moving data to those providing the highest speeds, ultimately giving users the best levels of accessibility possible, no matter where they may be located.
"Think of Cloud-Clout as your central storage of personal data on the Internet that you can save and retrieve your digital assets from anywhere in the world from any Internet enabled device," said Eugene Shulha, founder, Cloud-Clout. "Users have the ability to access their data using any mobile device, laptop, desktop, and tablet. We put security first when we designed our solution and this is our biggest differentiator when compared to our competitors in the industry."
The company is offering a free Alpha version of the storage solution for Android users via it’s website. The offering works through initial registration on four different cloud-based services like Google Drive or Box (News - Alert).net. Then the solution diffuses data among those storage offerings and data is subsequently retrieved via the Cloud-Clout application. Data may also be easily synchronized among all connected devices via the app.
Cloud-Clout is also offering a mobile app for both iOS and Android (News - Alert) for accessing data via any public Wi-Fi network. The platform may also be accessed through smartphones or a Web or PC interface. Users interested in contributing to the company’s Kickstarter campaign will receive a three-month subscription for a $14 pledge, and a six-month subscription for $19. The first 500 customers to contribute $29 will receive a one-year subscription, with subsequent customers required to pledge $49 for a one-year subscription to the solution.
