[prMac.com] New York, New York - Cirrus Thinking, makers of the award-winning Dolly Drive cloud backup and storage for Mac, has moved up the release of its new REVO platform to allow MobileMe users to switch to the company's cloud storage as a replacement for Apple's now ended service. MobileMe users were provided 20 GB for $40 per year of Apple's iCloud service as a replacement. Dolly Drive offers more than twice as much storage for the same price with an additional 5GB Reward each month that brings the total to over 100GB of storage by the end of the first year. Dolly Drive also offers a number of larger plans.
"iCloud, like Dolly Drive's Sync services, connects your files across all of your devices. What it doesn't do is protect those files from corruption, accidental deletion, or give you access to past permeations" said Anthony Palermo, CEO of Dolly Drive. "With Dolly Drive REVO, you get over twice as much file syncing, virtual hard drive storage and incremental, versioned backup of all your work and files for the same price as iCloud. And it's also built precisely for the Mac experience."
Added Palermo, "We were scheduled to launch REVO October 10th but decided to announce the release ahead of time to accommodate MobileMe users who are looking for a sync, backup & store option outside of iCloud before September 30th hits."
Dolly Drive REVO is an all-in-one sync, store and backup service designed for the Mac experience. In addition to providing Mac users offsite cloud storage and mobile access to expand hard drive space, the application allows users to create a bootable clone of their Mac on an external hard drive for local disaster recovery.
While Apple is offering iCloud users 20 GBS for $40 per year, Dolly Drive offers 50 GBS for $42, compared to iCloud's 20 GBS for $40 per year, and Dolly gives an additional 5GB reward every month for an free 60 GB of storage after the first year.
