Space Monkey was recently launched by co-founders Clint Gorgon-Carroll and Alen Peacock. This technology is not about bringing monkeys into space, but it’s actually a new way how you can access cloud storage. Space Monkey is basically an encrypted peer-to-peer cloud storage network for your desktop. But it’s not the same with your typical cloud storage solution like Google Drive, Dropbox or SkyDrive. Check out more details below.
Space Monkey is a device that makes it easier for you to access cloud while you are at your home. Unlike a conventional P2P storage or network sharing, files uploaded to the cloud storage network using Space Monkey are copied into different encrypted parts and are being stored into various Space Monkey network.
This means that you don’t need to create another backup of your backup just to keep your files safe. If one network or data center got struck down by natural catastrophe, don’t worry because another data center located in other parts of the world also has a copy of your files, securely.
But Space Monkey is not free, only unbelievably cheaper. For only $10 per month, you get 1TB of cloud storage. It’s way more storage for the price that you paid compared to other Cloud Storage solution.
Space Monkey is not limited to your home only. If you decide to go mobile, you can also access your files anywhere in the world using a laptop, mobile device or another computer, just as long as you have internet connection.
So what do you think? Is the peer-to-peer Cloud Storage Network better than the traditional cloud storage solution? Will you be trying out this new solution?
