There's hardly a business out there that doesn't use cloud storage, and a growing number of private individuals are taking advantage of it as well. Suffice to say that word gets out pretty quickly about shoddy cloud services. And conversely, you can be sure that when sites like Techradar give the New Zealand-based MEGA high marks as one of their top cloud storage options, they are not alone.
Not only is MEGA an airtight place to store and send your data, it functions as a communications hub with text, voice, and video communication straight through dedicated apps on your Android, iOS or Windows devices. When you're sharing files, there's no guesswork about how secure the servers are. Data is encrypted on your end before you even send it, which means not even MEGA itself will have the means to unlock it. While they are happy to keep your info blacked out, the company itself is dedicated to transparency, with an open-source structure for their sync clients.
There are three plans for MEGA PRO cloud storage, and they're all at least 25% off the MSRP. The base-level gives 1 TB of storage and 2 TB of data transfer, PRO II has 4 TB storage and 8 TB data transfer, and you can ramp up to 8 TB of storage and 16 TB of data transfer with the PRO III plan.

Then Doom itself plays, each “pixel” generated by thrashing a core with just the right amount of busy work. Max Holt: Finally got […]
The UK government today ordered domestic companies to stop buying equipment from Chinese vendor Huawei and to stop using its kit entirely by 2027. Huawei is suspected to be an arm of the Chinese government, breaking into western markets (and maybe its networks) by selling impossibly cheap equipment. The UK only recently approved more Huawei […]
You may not realize it, but some of the biggest films in movie history have been edited using the same tools some of you use to cut your video of vacationing at Disney World. Giant movies from Oscar favorites The Social Network and Gone Girl to blockbusters like Avatar, Deadpool, and last year’s Terminator: Dark […]
Now that the initial furor and shortages have subsided, it’s probably not a bad time to start considering your long-term cleaning and disinfecting plans. Sure, that might seem anywhere from overly cautious to outright ridiculous, but the threat of COVID-19 appears poised to be present for a while and the need for quick travel clean-up […]
With more and more companies moving all their operations into the cloud, the need has never been greater for those with the skills to map exactly how an organization reconstitutes itself in that new environment.
