Telstra has entered the online storage business launching BigPond Online Storage targeted at both business and consumers looking for a secure way to store data.
BigPond Managing Director, Mr Justin Milne, said secure off-site servers are ideal if you’re running out of room on your hard drive, you’re worried about losing files if your system crashes due to a virus, or you just want the security of off-site data and settings back-ups.
Customers can choose ‘Basic’ or ‘Professional’ storage plans to suit their requirements.
Basic Storage plan subscription ranges from $2.50 per month for 100MB to $12.95 for 800MB. Professional storage is available from $4.95 for 100MB to $24.95 for 2000MB.
Basic storage features easy drag-and-drop uploads to a customer’s personal online folder and is ideal for storing photos or transferring large files from PC to PC.
Professional storage enables the user to create an online copy of a nominated folder and provides automatic, ‘always-on’ access that synchronises a customer’s local files with their online folder.
Transferring files between your PC and BigPond Online Storage is unmetered for BigPond Broadband Cable & ADSL customers.
