People who care about IT industry and their own life style must know the words “personal cloud storage solution” well, among which Pogoplug is one of the most well-known services.To be more specific, people get used to having Pogoplug and are likely to use it for content storing, sharing and streaming. Indeed, it aims at all the merits like security, availability but affordability. A rising star for free in this field today deserves more your favor than Pogoplug----xCloud. xCloud turns your own PC into personal cloud storage as your virtual data cable. In fact, I was a big fan of Pogoplug; while I am a bigger fan of xCloud today for my favor in totally free for completely unlimited storage space, no need of another given devices, impressive mobile interfaces and amazing speed for transferring over the Internet.
1. Unlimited Storage Space Charges You NO Fees.
Pogoplug offers 5GB of free cloud storage for one mouth ONLY. If you continues to use Pogoplug, you’ll be charged. As usual, 50GB and 100GB of additional cloud storage are available for $9.95/month and $19.95/month respectively. xCloud, on the contrary, is a non-consuming product that once you download xCloud to your Android or iOS for free and you’ll always never be charged no matter how long you use or how much more space you need.
The most importantly, xCloud adopts P2P secure tunnel to act as a connection between your PC and your mobiles, thus turning your PC into your private cloud storage directly without the 3rd part server. In this way, your storage space depends on your hard drives of your PC or your NAS server other than xCloud, giving the storage space near-limitless capacity.
2. More Flexible Choice of Hard Devices for You
Those who get used to using Pogoplug have to agree that Pogoplug PC appears a little bit “baby fat” with a 20 Mb “weight”. That’s why our PC “moves” slower and slower. While, xCloud has a tiny figure of just 8Mb that hardly affects the working speed of PCs.
Besides, as we all know, alternatively, unlimited cloud storage is also available for free provided you purchase one of Pogoplug’s accompany physical products (e.g. $99 Pogoplug box or the $79 Pogoplug Mobile device). I should say it’s a great idea to have such a product to further the storage space. However, the thing is that for those people who have already had other devices on their PC like Synology, it would be a pity to waste Synology device and buy another given Pogoplug device. But you needn’t worry about such a thorny choice if you have installed xCloud because it is said that xCloud can fully support for Synology since version 3.0.0.
In sum, xCloud makes your PC lighter and faster.
3. Game-like Experience
To be honest, xCloud does not have many differences from Pogoplug in storing, sharing and streaming except one interesting thing----the mobile client interface. If you have ever used xCloud, you’ll definitely be impressed by the beautiful interfaces. Moreover, one clicking, dragging or dropping even make the transferring more like playing a game that you will never get tired of. For those who enjoy having fun, you won’t miss xCloud!!
4. Unbelievable Speed of Near 10 MB/s over the Internet
When it comes to file transferring, most people expect nothing but a fast speed and extreme security, which are what exactly xCloud offers. As I mentioned before, xCloud, unlike a net disk, transfers the content from PC or Synology to mobile devices or the other way round DIRECTLY without the 3rd party engaged in. Therefore, the files will be never made public unless you want to share with others yourself. Moreover, as for the raw transfer speed, according to xCloud official testing report, xCloud completely take over a 10 MBps connection while uploading when powered by the WLAN.
To sum up, although as a new comer in cloud storage, xCloud makes its own way with some shining characters such as NO fees, unlimited space, playability and awesome speed that make xCloud exceed Pogoplug. For those people who love challenging new things and persue fast speed, huge storage space and fun, xCoud is just the very choice.
xCloud is now available in both app store and Google Play market, you may download xCloud for Android and iOS totally for free or xCloud Platinum for iOS at $4.99.
