BITCASA POWERS INDOSAT OOREDOO CLOUD
San Mateo, CA – February 3, 2016 – Bitcasa, the cloud drive for the device economy, today announced a partnership with network operator Indosat Ooredoo, a leading telecommunications network and services provider in Indonesia. Indosat Ooredoo has integrated Bitcasa’s cloud storage technology into the company’s wireless plans. The new service, called incloud, launched in November of 2015 and is seeing steady growth.
“Bitcasa has given us the opportunity to use personal cloud as one of the digital services we offer our customers to enhance their experience with Indosat Ooredoo. We are very excited to leverage Bitcasa’s infrastructure, pre-built applications, and subscriber analytics. This offering is in-line with our vision to be the leading digital telco in Indonesia, enriching people’s lives through digital experience,” said Alexander Rusli, CEO of Indosat Ooredoo. Indosat Ooredoo currently provides wireless services for over 69 million subscribers in Indonesia.
With the partnership, Indosat Ooredoo subscribers have access to incloud branded applications that provide cross-device storage, access, and sharing functionality backed by Bitcasa’s industry-leading security model. Bitcasa’s platform allows Indosat Ooredoo to maintain ownership of the service branding, customers, and data.
“Most cloud storage solutions available to the device economy require taking on a great deal of risk – or giving away users to third-party brands,” said Brian Taptich, CEO of Bitcasa. “Our partnership with Indosat Ooredoo to power their incloud service further validates that the Bitcasa platform removes these hurdles, allowing partners to use cloud storage to generate additional revenue and reduce churn.”
As the amount of digital content created and shared across devices continues to increase exponentially, cloud storage has become increasingly important for device manufacturers, network operators, and ISVs because of its ability to deepen customer relationships.
Bitcasa has a growing roster of global partners that utilize its white-label Turn-key Drive applications including SanDisk and Hutchison Telecommunications, which services more than 82 million customers throughout Asia and Europe. More than 25,000 developers also use Bitcasa’s CloudFS APIs, which provide a simple way to integrate cloud storage into applications and services.
Bitcasa is transforming the drive. By providing secure APIs and white label storage applications for OEMs, network operators, and software developers, Bitcasa helps the device economy create deeper relationships with their customers in over 140 countries worldwide. The Bitcasa Platform enables secure file storage, access, and sharing across all major platforms including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and the Web. Bitcasa is backed by top-tier investors, including Horizons Ventures, Pelion Venture Partners, First Round Capital, Samsung Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz.
