Online storage suites have been popping up everywhere in the last year. We look at why online storage is popular vs downloadable backup
There's been a huge surge in use of online storage suites in the last year that is creating competition for market leaders like Smith Micro's Stuffit Deluxe. These file delivery and storage suites allow users to "send" files to eachother, so that recipients can download "shared" files via a link sent by email. The files are stored "in the cloud" (i.e. on the providers website). These services are new online variants of a traditional software vertical that is broadly referred to as backup.
Examples are yousendit.com, sendbigfiles.com and drop.io. Stuffit (which has just released a 2011 version in its 24th year) adds file compression functionality to the storage and sending piece (sending is done via its related service SendStuffNow).
