    Bitcasa's infinite cloud storage balloons to $999 a year

    If you thought Bitcasa’s infinite
    cloud storage
    was too sweet of a deal to exist on this mortal plane
    for $99 a year, that’s because it was — or at least partly because the bulk
    of subscribers filled up far less of their digital
    lockers
    than expected. According to the outfit, 98 percent of its
    customers use less than five terabytes of data, and 92 percent “do not store
    anywhere close to a terabyte.” In addition, the firm says a survey of its
    customers revealed they valued more features over additional space. As
    result, the unlimited service will now cost $999 a year, or $99 per month,
    and the company will focus on making the platform more useful, starting with
    a freshly-released API. Free accounts have been tweaked to start at 5GB (as
    opposed to 10GB), and the $99 per year (or $10 a month) tier now nets 1TB of
    space. For those with even more bits to squirrel away, 5TB can be had by
    contributing $499 a year (or $49 each month) to Bitcasa’s
    coffers.

    Existing subscribers will get to keep their
    current plan’s rates and storage, but won’t get access to new offerings —
    such as the future Linux client — unless they switch to the new pricing
    scheme. Tencent’s
    free 10TB of online storage
    might sound even more tempting now, but
    it’s worth taking this instance as an example of what could happen to your
    cloud paradise.
