Update: this article is truncated and obsolete. We DO NOT recommend ZenOK and the claim that it offers 21 gigs of free storage does not seem to be accurate.
If you want a free cloud storage service that offers a lot of free storage, check out our article entitled “A comparison of FREE Cloud Storage Services” which lists all of the ones worth knowing about.
Want free online storage? Dropbox will give you a free 2GB, Sugarsync will give you 5GB, but if you want something more, to the tune of say … 21GB, then check out ZenOK.
ZenOK is a cloud storage service that is soon to be launched. No, I have not tried it yet and this is not a review, but it is possible to request an invitation right now to be amongst the first to try the free service; if, that is, you are prepared to post a tweet about the service on your Twitter account.
ZenOK will support a local client for Windows, Apple OSX, and Linux, and will provide the ability to mirror local folders. It will also support Android, iOS, and Blackberry devices.
ZenOK online storage promises to support file compression, automatic versioning (i.e it will keep earlier versions of changed files), and file encryption, all while being light on resources. It is unclear right now which services will be free and which will be based on a fee, but commercial applications, such as backup/protection plans for companies will be offered on a paid basis obviously. More pricing details here.
Of course, there are services out there that offer even more cloud storage (a.k.a Adrive, which offers 50GB, and Windows Skydrive, which offers 25GB); however, desktop integration for these is somewhat lacking, without folder mirroring or any of the other advanced services. So, a free 21 GB with ZenOK sounds like a really good deal, if indeed the services it provides can live up to the promise.
