Symform has announced that for a limited time it is giving 100GB of cloud storage for free to new and existing customers. Businesses and organizations of all sizes, managed service providers, and IT professionals can now access and experience durable and highly available decentralized cloud storage at no cost.

Symform’s decentralized model provides security, speed, and redundancy at a low flat fee, according to Matthew J. Schiltz, Symform’s CEO. “Our 100GB free offer makes it easy for customers and partners to take advantage of the latest advancements in cloud storage. When people try Symform, they love the value.”

Symform’s offer is not limited to certain devices, and it does not throttle bandwidth.

According to IDC’s 2011 Digital Universe Study, the analyst firm predicts digital data will more than double every two years. Cloud storage has been introduced as an alternative storage solution, but adoption has been slow as a result of the high costs associated with managing this growth of data.

“You know the model is broken when you can buy two terabytes of local storage for $80 but that same amount of storage in the cloud costs $12,000 or more each year,” Schiltz explained.

The Symform Storage Cloud is the industry’s first decentralized cloud storage solution, an improvement over traditional storage, back up, and disaster recovery solutions. Symform breaks away from the common centralized data center cloud storage model, which is costly due to the additional overhead costs for disk space, increased bandwidth, and the electricity needed to house and cool servers.

In addition, a data center is more susceptible to vulnerability as a single point of failure. Symform uses RAID-96 to geographically distribute, encrypt, and shred its data, which makes it more secure. This approach allows Symform to deliver data protection and unlimited secure cloud storage at a low flat fee at a fraction of what customers would pay for other cloud storage offerings.
