Yes you read it right: 10 Tb = 10,000 Gb or to make it simple:
- 1428 times more than what Skydrive (Microsoft) offers;
- 5000 times more than what Dropbox offers.
Other companies are charging for this “crazy” size of data storage while Tencent is giving these 10 Terabytes away INSTANTLY, UPFRONT and ABOVE ALL FOR FREE.
I just signed up and i have to say that it works smoothly. My main concern was (is still?) about privacy issues, but according to engadget Tencent said data “will likely be stored in servers outside of China”.
The only “suboptimal” feature – if we really want to be extremely demanding – is that the max file size allowed to be uploaded is 300Mb… but honestly speaking, considering what is on offer and for free… i don’t think this is a real issue! And by the way there are several file splitters that are straight forward and very easy to use (if you ever need to split file bigger than 300Mb, i would recommend Split&Concat version 3 – I am using this on Mac).
Tencent’s move (the free cloud service is live for several months already) is a further confirmation of how well this company is doing not just in products and user acquisition but also in user long term retention. Just to mention a few things Tencent is the company behind Weixin/Wechat, QQ IM, and many other successful platforms spanning from Video to Music, from Social to Publishing, etc…
