Shadow established itself as a tech firm with two unique products. Along with its cloud computing service, the company is launching a Shadow Drive, a cloud storage solution based on Nextcloud.
Shadow Drive is a secure end-to-end encryption-based, and cost-effective online storage solution. Shadow unveiled this announcement in a press conference held in Paris. Shadow Drive is now available in 10 more countries: the UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Sweden and Denmark.
Shadow Drive: Store, Share & Sync
Shadow Drive is a hosted service, so you don't have to manage your own server or keep everything up to date, just like WordPress.com, it can manage your WordPress website for you.
Shadow Drive is based on three key features: Store, Share & Sync and was created in collaboration with Nextcloud, the market leader in open-source storage platforms. Shadow Drive enables users to conveniently store, share and sync their data while maintaining anywhere access to it. The free version of this cloud storage option offers up to 20GB of storage, while the premium version of the service cost €8.99 per month and provide storage for up to 2TB. Shadow Drive is accessible through its online interface and on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.
Shadow recently launched its premium subscription for its primary offering, a cloud computing platform. As of now, there are two setups/plans.
For $29.99 per month or €29.99 in Europe, the user automatically receives a plan that includes 256GB of storage, 12GB of RAM and the equivalent of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. It is a windows version, so you can install whatever software you want, like Steam, 3D editing software and more.
Users can add the 'Power Upgrade' option for an additional $14.99 per month (or €14.99) to their plan. This time, you get an Nvidia RTX A4500GPU, 16GB of RAM and AMD EPYC 7543P CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads.
Marking the Last Year's Possession of Shadow via OVHcloud
The founder of OHVcloud, Octave Klaba, acquired Shadow (formally known as Blade) to save it from bankruptcy. Since that time, OVHcloud has been a significant partner with Shadow. The data centres of OVHcloud currently host all Shadow servers.
This launch reflects just the first stage, as Shadow Drive is still in progress. Its iOS app is still in beta version. The firm also intends to include WebDAV functionality so that you may add your cloud storage account as a network drive in the Windows File Explorer or the Mac Finder. There will be additional Nextcloud modules in the future.
Shadow is a robust cloud-based computer that evolves its hardware automatically. It is a French company founded in 2015 and is headquartered in Paris. Shadow provides the best and most complete experience because of its extreme power, zero latency, and excellent visual quality.
Nextcloud is a collection of client-server software for establishing and using file hosting services. It was established on 1 June 2016 and is located in European Union. Anyone can download, install, and use the software as it is open-source and free. Nextcloud offers a secure, compliant, and safe solution for file synchronisation and sharing on servers. You can synchronise one or more shared files and folders with your Nextcloud server. When you add files to your local shared directories, the ownCloud/Nextcloud Desktop Sync Client, Android app, or iOS app quickly syncs those files with the server and other devices.
