Symform Gives 100GB of Cloud Storage for Free

Symform is giving 100GB of cloud storage for free to new and existing customers.  This offer will enable users to access and experience, durable, and highly available decentralized cloud storage at no cost.

Symform, the company specializing in offering safe, fast, and cost-effective solution for businesses, notes that this offer is suitable for businesses and organizations of all sizes, Managed Service Providers, and IT Professionals.
As the industry’s first decentralized cloud storage solution, the Symform Storage Cloud has an edge over traditional storage, back up, and disaster recovery solutions.

Typically, customers find the common centralized data center cloud storage model to be very expensive because of the additional overhead costs for disk space, increased bandwidth, and the electricity needed to house and cool servers. Security is also an issue, says Symform, as a data center is more susceptible to vulnerability as a single point of failure.  Because Symform uses RAID-96 to geographically distribute, encrypt, and shred its data, it offers more security to its customers.

Symform claims it can deliver data protection and unlimited secure cloud storage at a low flat fee at a fraction of what customers would pay for other alternatives.

Symform is a better cloud storage solution because our decentralized model provides better security, speed, and redundancy at a low flat fee,” said Matthew J. Schiltz, CEO of Symform. “No other company can match the value or unlimited storage offering in the cloud, and our 100GB free offer makes it easy for customers and partners to take advantage of the latest advancements in cloud storage. When people try Symform they love the value.

The greatest advances in technology and business often come from breaking the rules,” said Paul Burns, President of Neovise, an analyst firm focused on cloud computing. “Symform is doing just that when it comes to cloud storage. On the technology side, the use of customer owned, distributed storage is revolutionary. On the business side, the cost equation is so improved that Symform can offer 100 gigabytes for free.

  1. Careful! This is everything but NOT free!

    You give them 150GB of you own local storage in exchange for 100GB of cloud storage. How can you call this proposition “free”?Read their fine-print, it’s amazing:

    “Each Symform free account must contribute 150 GB’s of excess local storage back to the Storage Cloud.”

    “Symform allows you to store up to 100 GB free of charge provided you meet the required conditions described herein:

    – You must contribute 150 GB of local storage to the Symform Storage Cloud by configuring the contribution service on one or more of your devices.

    – Contribution Service must have sufficient Internet bandwidth (upload and download) per the published schedle at all times to serve requests from other devices joined to the Symform Storage Cloud.

    – All contribution must maintain atleast 80% uptime as monitored and reported by Symform on your online dashboard.

    – You will not resell the storage provided to others for commercial reasons.

    – Symform reserves the right to terminate Free Accounts at any time, with or without notice.

    – Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if a Free Account is inactive for sixty (60) days, then Symform may delete any or all of Your Files without providing additional notice.”

    • It looks like you work with Cloudsafe which is a competitor of Symform is that correct?

      • Yes, we do offer cloud storage as well – although with a different scope. And we only offer 2 GB for free. 

        Still, in my opinion the term ‘free’ has no obligations. If you give me a dollar in exchange for 1,5 dollars I wouldn’t call your dollar “free” :)

        • Certainly most people realize by now to take anything with the word “FREE” in it with a ‘grain of salt’.  Marketers have been using this word forever to entice clients and consumers so its nothing new. 

          The most important thing for anyone trying out a new cloud service is to do thier due diligence and test out several services before committing.

    • it will be free if you are a geek with a dedicated server yep… wuala offers the same with best fair method for everyone…
      80% uptime, high BW is not possible for majority of users…
