2013 brought lots of change to Bitcasa – as a company and as a product. We’re excited to announce that 2014 is going to be an incredible year for us.
Before we look ahead to what Bitcasa has in store this year, I’d like to take a moment to reflect some of the accomplishments that were essential highlights for us and our users.
Internationalization. We were extremely happy to launch localized versions of all of our Bitcasa apps and the web portal. Considering the fact that 75% of our users are overseas, this was a huge step for our global community, who are now able to use Bitcasa in their native languages.
Data Management Growth. Not many of our users realize that we hit a major milestone with data management during 2013. Bitcasa has now reached 35 petabytes of managed data and still growing!
Linux and API Integration. Bitcasa finally unveiled our headless Linux client, along with much anticipated API integration. Our goal is to promote development while also fostering developer interactions.
Community Forums. In effort to provide even more support to our customers, the dedicated Technical Support team created and began management of the Bitcasa Community Forums – a place where users can ask and answer questions while creating interactions with other Bitcasa users.
These accomplishments, along with many others, were the driving force to propel Bitcasa into another incredible year. Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect from us this year:
Continued API and Partner Support. Bitcasa API integration was a huge success in the development community and we are very much looking forward to carrying that into 2014 — we are 100% committed to offering 3rd party developers a range of tools to offer their users the best, fastest, and most effective cloud storage experience.
International Expansion. We will keep moving forward with our efforts to expand Bitcasa on a global scale. Along with improved international infrastructure, Bitcasa will be laser-focused on improving performance for our international users. [And planting our first flags in international territories will be one of the keys to success!]
Use Bitcasa to Collaborate. That’s right – in 2014 users will see the options to sync and share their data. The Bitcasa platform is going to provide a wide variety of ways to collaborate, providing you even more ways to get the most use out of it.
Upcoming Partnerships. We’ve got some extremely exciting partnerships that we’re very eager to announce in the upcoming year. Stay tuned to see what businesses we’ve teamed up with!
While this upcoming year is packed with some thrilling developments, we also understand that there were some inevitable hurdles we had to jump over during 2013. With every business, the path to success may include roadblocks and difficult decisions. It’s my hope that our users understand that while every decision may not have been an easy one, the most important goal was to provide the best solutions for our customers.
Bitcasa has grown faster than any other cloud storage in terms of data management. We’ll continue to leverage what we’ve learned in order to move forward and maintain our goal of revolutionizing the way you store and access your data. We’re here to make a difference and change the way people access the public cloud.
2014 brings a bounty of excitement for Bitcasa and I, along with the entire team, are so pleased to jump start into another outstanding year for our users.
