A Utah-based company says it wants to change how the world stores data — and the Kickstarter community is taking notice.
Co-founders Alen Peacock and Clint Gordon-Carroll led the creation of Space Monkey, an encrypted peer-to-peer cloud storage network. For a $10 per month subscription, you get 1TB of storage and an included Space Monkey unit. Because your data is spread geographically throughout the storage network, Space Monkey could keep your data safer in the face of natural catastrophes that normally might affect large data centers more directly. I'm personally not too crazy about the idea of storing pieces of my personal files on gadgets in various strangers' basements across the network — even if it's encrypted.
Space Monkey notably won a "best overall" award at the LAUNCH Festival 2012 in San Francisco, Calif. What do you think about the idea of a peer-to-peer cloud storage network versus a traditional cloud system with large data centers?
Cloud computing lets you work from virtually anywhere and on almost any device no matter what the size of your business.  We have partnered with Microsoft, Google, and others to bring you the best cloud offerings. That’s one of the conclusions of a recent survey of 1,300 corporate IT users, which sought to better understand employee habits regarding shadow IT.
The survey zeroed in on adoption of Dropbox, the cloud-based storage and file-sharing provider. It’s no surprise that the survey sponsor, Nasuni, has a self interest in publishing these results, as the vendor is a provider of enterprise storage to large organizations.
The Nasuni survey finds that across the board, at least half of the respondents use Dropbox in their organizations.
The report cautions that in many cases, corporate information is stored within personal Dropbox accounts. In fact, the survey also found that half of employees use these cloud file-sharing and storage services — even though they are aware that their employer has a policy against it.


The problem likely won’t go away anytime soon, as it is being fueled by mobile technology.
As the number of devices grows, the use of Dropbox and shadow IT will simultaneously increase to meet the demands of new users. We have an excellent deal on the Carbonite Unlimited Cloud Backup: 1-Yr Subscription in our deals store today, you can save 25% off the normal retail price.

According to a recent report from the WSJ, Google Drive is close to launch and we could possibly see the service launch within the next few months, although no specific details of a launch date have been revealed. The Google Drive service is reported to be a free service, although there are no details on how much free storage space Google will offer, and we presume that they will offer a premium version as well.
It will probably come with integration to a range of Google services, like Google Docs, Gmail and more, although we haven’t as yet heard ay specific details about how Google drive will work.
Dropbox is currently one of the most popular cloud storage services available, Apple also has their iCloud service, although it is less of a pure file storage service and is more integrated into their iOS. It will be interesting to see what Google Drive is like when the service launches, whether or not Google will be able to compete with the likes of Dropbox remains to be seen. It would be phenomenal if Google came out with 100GB and an easy interface similar to Dropbox’s.
OK, just to be a nerd, I figured it would take the 64GB drive to double in size 4 times to get to 1TB. Space Monkey is cloud storage on your desktop, but it works differently than services we've become accustomed to, like Dropbox or Google Drive.
When you you upload a file, the system dices that data up into tiny encrypted pieces and stores that across various Space Monkey units on the Internet (hence, the peer-to-peer factor), as explained in the video above.
When they frame it that way, Space Monkey clearly appears like a greener alternative to huge data centers.


For me, a nondescript, traditional data center somehow still gives me better peace of mind. Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe.
The fact that the CFO is doing his or her own thing with Dropbox doesn’t make it any easier. Dropbox usage is partcularly strong within universities, service firms, and manufacturers.
About 58% of respondents with a personal mobile device say they resort to using their own device to access work files because the company does not provide the tools they require.
Twenty-five percent of survey respondents plan to have an additional smart phone or tablet before the . But I'm clearly in the minority: With 21 days left to go, the company's Kickstarter campaign had already far surpassed its $100K goal, reaching more than $250,000 as of Friday afternoon.
Dropbox usage is prevalent in the mobile world as well; after e-mail, it is the most common tool used for accessing work files on a mobile device. Carbonite automatically backs up your files to the Cloud so you can safely restore them after a crash, even if you forgot to back them up.
Better yet, on a day to day basis, you can use Carbonite to get your files from any internet-connected computer or mobile device. If Moore holds, we’d have 6 years until we get a 1TB Thumb Drive (or MicroSD for that matter).
