Ian Leighfield, business development manager of ZipCloud, once stated in a press release that ZipCloud is all about sleek design; cool looks; unlimited storage; and plenty of groundbreaking features are the primary reasons for differentiating ZipCloud from ever growing competing heads in the cloud backup and storage solutions space. Launched in 2011, ZipCloud seems to be the underdog entrant into the fierce competing battlefield of cloud storage and backup solutions market.
While he does claim ZipCloud to be one of the best and comprehensive cloud storage and backup services on the web, it’s too early to come to a conclusion right away. At first look, it does look great and the product seems to be competitive.
ZipCloud uses Amazon’s S3 servers with 256 AES encryption, which promises superior levels of security, right away. With three paid plans for customers. ZipCloud is competitively priced with regards to price: storage ratio. The basic home plan starts at $4.95 for 75 GB of online storage. The most popular “premium” plan starts at just $5.95 a month that gives customers a whopping 250 GB of online storage space and the unlimited plan starts with just a dollar more (per month) at $6.95 p.m. All storage is 100% automated.
To start with, ZipCloud is incredibly easy to use. It doesn’t have any set-ups for you to go through. Install their program on your computer, and you are good to go. Files sync, automatically on the background. If you set-up a schedule for ZipCloud to follow, it’ll works without you ever having to lift a finger.
What strikes your first is the fact that all the plans come with an “anytime” money back guarantee – something I haven’t seen any other vendor providing customers with. ZipCloud also has an active, very effective file restore function. Effortlesslty, it restores files you could have misplaced or accidentally deleted.
As with most other cloud storage and backup services, ZipCloud helps you to sync multiple devices including your computers and other devices, allows you mobile access and backup initiation from mobile, and superior file sharing and protection on top priority.
From your computer to the cloud and then accessible through your choice of devices while being stored with maximum security – that’s the sole premise ZipCloud is based on. ZipCloud is also accessible on both PC and Mac (ZipCloud for Mac has been launched earlier this year)
“Cloud Storage Is Backup Utopia” claims a blog post on ZipCloud Blog and they couldn’t be further from the truth. ZipCloud does seem to be a promising solution for individuals, bloggers, and SMB’s looking for secure, robust, and trustworthy cloud storage and backup solution.
