Cloud Storage Service SugarSync Abandons Freemium For A Paid Account Model


TechCrunch

SugarSync, a gladiator in the long, hard battle that is hosted cloud storage, has decided to go mercenary. The company announced today that they will offer a “paid-only” service model, doing away with their free storage tiers. Current customers can still access their files and will be offered considerable discounts on the service – up to 75% in some cases.

“We have decided to no longer offer free storage forever,” said CEO Mike Grossman. “SugarSync is unlike other companies in the space because we do a lot more than just offer basic file storage.

    Unfortunately, the free ride is coming to an end. On February 8 of next year, SugarSync will switch to a paid-only model, killing off its free 5 GB plan. Continuing with my “crusade” to find the perfect online storage platform, its now the turn of Copy.com, a freshly launched service by Barracuda Networks a well known network and anti-spam security player in the market.
    Get 15 GB free right from the start! With apps for Windows, iOS, Linux, Android, Windows Phone. All I can say is, that I’m satisfied with this service called “COPY”. It works like Dropbox. But… it’s BIGGER. 15 GB is right for you? That’s okay. Maybe 20 GB sounds better?
    The first thing that catches your attention to try Copy.com is their incredible referral system.

    Copy.com will give you 15GB + free 5GB when you signup with this link: https://copy.com?r=FPsdqU
