Bitcasa, Inc., is a start-up company, founded in 2011 and led by CEO Tony Gauda and co-founders Kevin Blackham and Joel Andren, headquartered in Palo Alto, California, offering unlimited data storage as a cloud service. They are saying the unlimited version will cost $10 per month, but there doesn't seem to be any limit set (yet) if you sign up for a free account.
The service also encrypts and decrypts your data on your computer before uploading to the Bitcasa system. Nobody at Bitcasa can see your data, even the file names, which makes it very secure. You can also use the service to to sync as much data as you want across all your devices so you have the latest version of your most important data right there on every device. Additionally, you can use this feature to backup your data. When you install the program you have have it added right to Windows File Explorer.
I've been playing with it some. I like it. I uploaded a 53MB file just to see how long it would take. I got distracted during this time, but it was under 10 minutes. Of course a lot of this will depend on how fast of Internet connection you have. Below is one of their promotional videos:
Everything worked fine with my experiments with the service but I believe it's still in BETA so I wouldn't trust it yet with anything overly important. Might be all-right to share some large files with some friends. If you're interested in this service click here to visit the website and check it out
