Ubuntu One Cloud Storage Discontinued

http://blog.canonical.com/2014/04/02/shutting-down-ubuntu-one-file-services/

Additionally, we continue to believe in the Ubuntu One file services, the quality of the code, and the user experience, so will release the code as open source software to give others an opportunity to build on this code to create an open source file syncing platform.

Let's hope it'll be a a new contender in Open Source Dropbox clones.

  • Can't say it surprises me. With Google dropping their prices, Dropbox being quite popular, and Mail.Ru offering 1TB for free (not sure if they still do, but I have 1TB free), it's just a tough market to complete in. Especially for a company whose focus is on an Open Source OS. So, basically it's a wise decision.

    I do hope there's going to be done something nice with the source code, though. Imagine that software running with a Backupsy or Cloud Shards storage server, your completely private cloud. Seems awesome.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

  • Good, it's an unstable market, especially with the rising of copy.com and their 15 GB free plan...

    ubuntu is in a weird place... and ubuntu one was just one of those almost DOA products from them, its like their mobile strategy or heck their desktop strategy, i think everyone still enjoys the code and repositories but there is a trend to avoid anything directly from ubuntu...
