After reading about this in Pardus Life I was drawn to the option, but until today I had not tried it because it simply gave me only 2GB of storage and already in DropBox I have 5GB. The thing changes now, the arrival of Google Drive has made everyone get on their feet and quickly counterattack so as not to lose market next to the network giant and Wuala now it starts offering 5GB for free.
But let's see in parts what it is Wuala.
Wuala is a multiplatform cloud storage system for both normal computers and mobile devices (Android iOS). It allows you to do everything you do with services like DropBox and even more, since you can also share folders or see directly inside the folders of your contacts (the public ones, of course) and copy them to your space with one click or if you want to backup a folder on your PC or mobile device, you can do it also with a click.
What do you offer above your other competitors? Security and they explain it perfectly:
Wuala is the place to store data without forgetting security. To protect your privacy, Wuala encrypts the data on your computer before uploading it. During upload, your data is separated into multiple parts and stored in different places to ensure that you will never lose a single file. For added security, your password is never transmitted, so no one, not even Wuala employees, can see your private documents.
That the truth leaves enough desire to use it.
In terms of timing it's not like DropBox that you create a folder Wuala and you put everything there. No, Wuala It is a separate software that does not get into your files, you tell it what files it is going to take from your computer, it does not install anything or create anything by itself, synchronizing is as simple as dragging and dropping or simply from the control panel (file flap…)
Sharing is not a problem either, it is as simple as in DropBox And perhaps the best thing is the capacity for collaboration, which they explain better than me:
Working between different Wuala groups is easier than ever.
Company groups are ideal for companies, associations, communities or teams that want to store their files centrally and securely. Private and public groups count the storage space for uploaded files in an individual account, while company groups allow you and your team to share storage space together. You can share data with colleagues and co-workers in a company group, edit documents, or leave comments. Prepare to collaborate in a different way.
The truth is that it seems to me one of the best services, and more because they encourage you to gain more space in an original way: «Invite your friends, you win space by inviting them and they gain space by being invitedI mean that for inviting someone I gain 250mb of additional space and you, for accepting my invitation (or that of any friend) will automatically gain 1GB of space when accepting the invitation and creating an account. How about? I will leave my invitation for those who want to accept it and start not with 5GB but 6GB and I earn some extra megabytes, in the long run we all win, especially on the security side, which is what really matters.
When you register after downloading the program, it will ask you for a serial number which is the one I give you in my invitation, you only need to copy and paste.
