Cloud Storage War in China

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
As a native Chinese, let me tell you what happend in the area of cloud storage in China and the details.This is called "Cloud Storage War in China"

 

First of all, you should know the top cloud storage companies in China: Baidu, Tencent, Sina, Kingsoft, Qihoo 360, Huawei,115

 

Before, China’s free storage services are mainly focused on storage capacity under 15GB. But in Aug 13, 2013, Kingsoft Cloud officially announced that the company has received $ 20 million investment.Supported by the financing, Kingsoft Kuaipan, a service under Kingsoft Cloud, offers a 100G free storage service to personal users.

 

Then Qihoo 360 said that they offer users 360 GB of permanent free space.

Then Baidu said: Pay 1 RMB, and you'll get 1TB permanent space.(6.1 RMB=1 USD)

Then Qihoo 360 said: we'll offer users extra 666 GB of free space (360GB+666GB=1026GB, more than 1TB)

Then Baidu said: we offer users 1TB free, and if pay 1 RMB, you'll get extra 1TB.

Then Tencent said: we offer users 10TB of free and permanent space.

Then Qihoo 360 said: we offer users unlimited space, free and permanent.

Then Baidu change its service to: we directly offer users 2TB for free, no need money, and claimed that it will give back that 1 RMB to users that payed before.

 

And Sina said: we offer users 100GB of free space, and will offer more latar. It also said: if you share one file to public, you will get the same size of free permanent space.(so called: unlimited)

And Huawe said: if you share one file to public, then you can delete this file, while the file is not actually deleted on server, you can also download it.( so called:unlimited)

And 115.com said: new signing up users can get 15GB, while old users can get extra 100GB, and all the uses can get 1TB every year, increasing to unlimited size. 

 

More information about those companies:

Here's me thinking this was a new reality TV show.

 

Seems like they are being very competitive with there offers. I would be more worried about the upload and download speeds of these services and not the TB of free data you get. Dropbox was incredibly slow 150kb/s when uploading a file took forever to do anything besides a word or excel document.

Well, I used to use another Tencent product "Tencent Transit", through the 100Mbit/s network in my wordplace, down speed is 10MBytes/s, and up speed is 3 MBytes/s.As for Tencent Weiyun, I don't know.

 

And I use Baidu Cloud Storage through my house network, it can be 1.25MBytes/s down speed, and the up speed, here in China ,home broadband is limited to 0.5Mbit/s or 1Mbit/s by the ISP.

According the the test result of other users, the up speed of Baidu Yun cloud storage could be 1.85MByte/s or higher through high speed network. I don't know if the up speed of housr broadband network is limited by ISPs in your country.

i'm sure some ppl upload their """holidays videos""" 24/7 ^^

 

99,95% will not use the TB now... moore law will change this in a decade of course ;)

whole idea is on http://www.powweb.com/legal/legal_unlimited.bml?type=details

Jeez so much free space..

YOu could never fill that much space by uploading, it is just a gimmick. maybe up to 200GB is nice but after that you just can't use it all, uploading all your stuff would take ages even on fiber connections.

And China is probably scanning all your stuff alswell (just like the NSA probs do with Dropbox and Skydrive).

For now Ill keep my stuff locally and just use the free space Dropbox and Skydrive offer.

some users before you answered on it these last hours no ?

 

if you are not agree to see old threads, ask to the admin here to autolock old threads. some forums do this. it is their choice.

At least these are Chinese companies, so should be more trustworthy than American counterparts by a factor of ten.


In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.
