Online storage with servers in Europe – welcome to pCloud

Online storage with servers in Europe - welcome to pCloud Cybersecurity

It was time for an online storage provider to offer all types of users, even for free, a physical storage service in the European Union. Until now, the majority of large companies have hosted servers only in the United States.

Some small companies, based in Europe, remain on the market for a short time and disappear, either for lack of users, or because they decide to use their resources for other types of services, financially more profitable.

What is pCloud?

Quite simply: thousands of hard drives, in an ultra secure location (in Luxembourg or Dallas), where you can store all your files and free up space on your computers, mobile phones and tablets, while keeping access wherever you are.

The advantages of online storage at pCloud are numerous:

  • You have access to your files on all your devices – Windows, MacOs, Linux, iOS and Android – no matter the number of devices.
  • The data is kept securely with the best 256-bit AES online encryption and you benefit from a “client-side encryption” digital safe.
  • Even if you delete a file by mistake, you can find it in your trash for 30 days, with a possible extension to be able to go up to 365 days.
  • It’s exactly the same for all versions of a file – you can find all versions after each change.
  • You can easily share files with the whole world, without the need to send them by email or other service – with 3 clicks you will hinder a download link or shared folder
  • A little more: integrated audio and video players.
