Giganews Dump Truck Personal Online Storage

Giganews recently announced that their new online storage service will be named Dump Truck.  In development by Golden Frog.  The same team behind Mimo Usenet client and VyprVPN.  The Dump Truck project is still in the works and will be available to Giganews customers in the months to come.  In the meantime a limited number of spots are available to test the Dump Truck personal storage service.

Giganews members can visit the Dump Truck registration page for more details and to sign up for early access.  Space is limited so you will want to register early.  The site doesn’t specify but we’re guessing that you have to be a Giganews Diamond customer to participate in the early testing.

Here is a list of Dump Truck early features from the registraion page:

  • Intuitive web interface with drag and drop upload
  • Simple and secure file structure
  • 256-bit SSL encryption for uploads and downloads
  • Files are encrypted on-disk with 256-bit AES encryption
  • Access to your files anywhere in the world

Giganews Personal Online Storage Service

Earlier today Giganews announced their next innovation.  As they are in the midst of developing a personal storage service for their members.  The related blog post mentions that Giganews Diamond members will be brought into the process to share ideas and ultimately beta test the new online backup service.

It will be interesting to see what the Giganews development team comes up with for the new personal storage offering.  We have experience with a couple other Usenet providers who offer online storage through 3rd party vendors.  Including Ngroups (LiveDrive) and NewsDemon (StorageNinja).  It will be interesting to see how the finished product compares to the competition.  Especially LiveDrive as they also have a very nice iPhone / iPad app that let’s you stream audio and video.  One thing is for sure.  The Giganews development team has kept busy with the recent Mimo updates and partnership with Golden Frog to bring VyprVPN to Giganews Diamond members.  Now that they’ve turned the focus toward online storage we’ll keep you updated on the progress.
