I’ve talked about different types of cloud storage and today I read that on Wednesday July 9, 2014 Amazon launched a cloud file storage called Zocalo.
In a previous article I mentioned when looking for cloud storage you want the ability to access it on any device. Zocalo gives you that ability.
You can install the Zocalo app on your device, which is designed to provide users with a tablet-optimized experience when working with files.
As for security, all data stored in Amazon Zocalo is encrypted in transite and at rest. You can track user activity by time, IP address and device and choose whether you are going to allow users to share files or not.
Zocalo provides a central hub for users. You can view all your files in one location. When someone shares a file the other user is automatically notified via email.
As for file types, with Amazon Zocalo you can store virtually an type of file.
To transfer your files to Zocalo you do so through a web browser by clicking on the “Add Content” button and selecting multiple or single files. You can also drop and drag files directly into your browser from your desktop. The other option is to add files by moving them into a folder you have configured to sync using the Amazon Zocalo desktop sync application.
If you are a business and use Amazon WorkSpace you can get up to 50GB for free.
Users can sign up for a 30 day trial that will give you 200 BB of storage per user for up to 50 users.
The cost is $5 per a month for 200 GB of storage.
There are no upfront fees or commitments. You will be billed at the end of the month for your usage.
Look into the features that Zocalo offers and decide whether this is an option for your cloud-based storage.
