  1. Om – these serves are not dying – they’re being reborn.

    We’ve been making ExpanDrive for 5 years now – and it’s an infinitely better solution to disk in the cloud than iDisk [webdav]. It’s fast, secure, and reliable. More info: http://bit.ly/16Ck2f

    Joyent is still providing all the infrastructure for the service – we’re just stepping in to turn it into what it always should have been . Don’t give up hope and pass your data off to S3 – give us some input on what you want your ideal service to look like. Shoot us an email or give us a call.

  2. As a currently satisfied Mac owner using Backblaze, I’d still have to agree with Jeff Mancuso there. Switching when the service or infrastructure itself itself isn’t changing doesn’t seem like a good use of your time. Also, the title of this post, “Startup Joyent Ends BingoDisk and Strongspace,” would indicate the two storage offerings are shutting down. I’m glad I read the whole article to learn otherwise.

  3. Was it last year or the year before that Strongspace went down and was inaccessible for a couple of weeks? At the time Joyent shut the service down to new signups and let users know they were re-architecting the service to prevent future outages. That’s pretty much when I stopped using my Strongspace account (which I have a lifetime subscription to).

    Strongspace has been dead to me until this announcement. What’s curious is that I never did hear anything about the service being re-architected. I might give it another look, but I doubt I’ll be putting any important data there.

  4. Want to use Amazon S3 for personal online backup? Try new CloudBerry Online Backup with friendly user interface, strong data encryption and scheduling capabilities.
