LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IDrive online backup has introduced an innovative take on data archival solutions with IDrive Nearline backup, a cost-effective cloud backup service for online backup, data archival, and disaster recovery. IDrive Nearline backup not only touts pricing lower than the industry-standard, but has surpassed other storage services with a lightning fast access speed.
IDrive Nearline backup has an edge on other major data archival services with an attractive pricing plan. Users can backup with an unlimited amount of storage costing only 1 cent per GB/month, and unlike other services, IDrive charges no fee for data retrieval. This is an ideal solution for storing infrequently accessed data at an affordable price.
Another major difference between IDrive Nearline backup and other services is the speed at which you can access data. IDrive Nearline backup offers affordable storage with an access speed of less than one second. That's faster than most leading storage services, some by a matter of hours.
"Our goal was to disrupt the status quo of data archival with a cost-effective, faster solution," says Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive. "By eliminating retrieval fees, and removing the obstacle of time when it comes to accessing files, we're able to offer a nearline backup solution that lets users store data on a budget, without compromising accessibility."
IDrive launched its nearline service this week, offering their free express upload service to get users started. The service spares users the time and bandwidth-consuming hassle of uploading their data by shipping them a storage drive onto which they can transfer their data, then mail it back to IDrive to upload. All data backed up to IDrive Nearline is protected with military-grade 256-bit AES encryption.
