A new cloud storage named “Mega” launched on 20th January 2013 and its the successor of file hosting site “megaupload”, which is now closed. As reported by the owner of the cloud storage website, the site registered 100,000 users in less than 1 hour.
The cloud storage is offering 50 GB for “Free Membership” making it being registered in huge numbers.
One year ago the United States Department of Justice closed the services of “Megaupload” file hosting site. Now the Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, came up with “Mega” cloud storage which enforces encryption.
Mega uses symmetric key encryption, every file has its own key and it is known to uploader only. The users of the cloud storage can share files but they have to provide the keys to decrypt the file to the downloaders.
As of now due to heavy usage in its start up, the cloud storage service is facing huge bandwidth load and it goes down and also slow. From the tweets it looks that Kim Dotcom is aware of this problem and is rectifying the issues and bug fixes.
How the Announcement of “Mega” came up !
Kim Dotcom tweeted the announcement of the new cloud storage service via twitter. She tweeted “As of this minute one year ago
#Megaupload was destroyed by the US Government. Welcome to http://Mega.co.nz .”
