Storage Services


Your Requirement

You want to back up your files and combine different devices. You have a lot of data to back up and want a simple configuration. The backup should only contain the changed data and should not burden your mobile data volume. You want access to the backups via the web and from mobile devices. Intervals and retention times should be easy for you to configure yourself. Access by third parties should not be possible.

Our Offer
