Barracuda Networks Inc. today announced that it will be increasing the amount of free cloud storage space for Copy from 5GB to 15GB. Copy is the new online file syncing, sharing and storage service built on the secure Barracuda Cloud.
The company said that the announcement was inspired by the recent news that Google is unifying storage across its products. Since its launch Copy has attracted nearly half a million users worldwide and is rapidly growing in numbers.
“We think Google’s effort here is great. The full benefits of cloud can only be realised if people have lots of storage. For our part, Copy’s free space has now been increased to 15GB and is a welcome addition for our users besides our ‘Fair Storage for All’ initiative,” said Thiban Darmalingam, the Regional Manager for Barracuda in Malaysia.
“Together with our awesome referral program, incredibly low-paid storage plans and “Fair Storage for All” initiative, Copy will be able to help people do amazing things.”
“Copy’s ‘No Limit’ Referral programme lets users earn 5GB of additional free storage space both for themselves and the referred user. On average our users are earning well over 60GB of free storage, with the largest referrers earning space in the 10s of TBs,” adds Thiban.
Under Copy’s “Fair Storage for All”, users are allowed to control which files count against their storage capacity, instead of counting data in shared folders against all members’ individual storage quotas.

Additional highlights of the service include:
- Multiple device compatibility – Copy works across Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux computers and offers mobile device support for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and Android, with Windows Mobile coming soon.
- Easy file sharing without limits – Copy allows users to upload and share files of any size, including 1080p videos and raw photographs, without size limitations often found in email attachments. These shared files and folders can be sent to anyone either publicly or privately and accessed from any location or device.
- More security – Copy provides a secure alternative to other cloud storage services. Included data verification inspects data before Copy accepts it into the user’s cloud storage. File-level ownership is verified prior to transferring anything to other devices. Copy also allows users to share files privately using Copy’s built-in identify verification.
- Company control – Copy extends its cloud storage and sharing benefits into corporate environments with user and group management and added controls for proprietary company data.
