Bitcasa vs Streem: What are the differences?
Bitcasa: Your External Hard Drive in the Cloud. Your personal cloud storage platform. Simple, private & secure, as much space as you need, for all your devices; Streem: Unlimited Cloud Storage For Your Media. Unlike other cloud storage tools, Streem takes up no space on your computer, but still gives you instant access to your files without any lag. All media on Streem is converted on-the-fly so you can access it seamlessly regardless of the device or bandwidth.
Bitcasa and Streem can be categorized as "File Storage" tools.
Some of the features offered by Bitcasa are:
- Your data is yours alone. - Your files are encrypted before they leave your computer, meaning only you can see the contents.
- Store once, access anywhere. - Have a movie you want to watch, but can’t find the right movie player? Bitcasa can play it, including on your mobile phone.
- Bitcasa never runs out of space. - Rather than just “syncing” your files between computers, Bitcasa is like an external hard drive that you can access anywhere.
On the other hand, Streem provides the following key features:
- Truly unlimited cloud storage for $20/month. We're able to do this with our de-duplication, compression, and estimation algorithms to figure out how much the average user will store and store only unique copies of files. Based on our data and analysis, with de-duplication and compression, $20/month is enough to cover the cost of an average users' data storage.
- No space and no syncing required. We don't require users to keep copies of files on their device (unlike Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud sync tools). We store a single copy in the cloud and stream the file data down on-demand when it's accessed.
- On-the-fly adaptive bitrate video streaming (Apple HLS). Our video streaming technology is able to dynamically fluctuate the quality of the video stream based on the user's available bandwidth. We also transcode videos on-the-fly, so there are no transcoding wait times and users are able to watch videos instantly after upload, on any device, without having to worry about formats, codecs, quality, resolution, or file size.
