Livedrive Re-Releases Cloud Storage Platform for Resellers

By Erin Harrison

In an appeal to make its cloud storage platform more attractive to resellers, Livedrive has re-released its reseller product to include a 30-day money back guarantee for all reseller consumer and business accounts, in addition to the unlimited free backup accounts the company already provides to resellers.

The London-based cloud storage company supplies online backup and over 2,000GB cloud sync storage to more than a million customers internationally.

Livedrive’s reseller accounts are designed to help businesses provide their own cloud storage with a low startup cost, according to Livedrive CEO, Andrew Michael.

“It has never been easier for companies to start selling cloud storage as a second business. By adding a 30-day money back guarantee to our reseller customer accounts and including unlimited free backup accounts, companies can now start selling cloud storage with very little start-up costs,” Michael said in a statement.

The worldwide cloud storage market is expected to reach $46.8 billion by 2018, with a CAGR of 40.2 percent, according to the report, “Private/Public Cloud Storage Market – Worldwide Forecasts & Analysis (2012 - 2018),” published by MarketsandMarkets.

By 2015, combined spending for public and private cloud storage will be $22.6 billion worldwide, IDC forecasts.

The strategy behind the new 30-day money back guarantee is to enable Livedrive resellers to purchase Briefcase, the company’s sync product, or Business accounts and trial them for 30 days. The change in policy also applies to Livedrive account upgrades – including NAS drives, additional storage upgrades, and extra user profiles on business accounts.

Priced at for $15.95 per month, Livedrive’s Briefcase service comes with 2TB of storage and synchronization across multiple computers.

To provide a more customized service, Livedrive also offers a white label package that allows resellers to edit the desktop software, apps and online dashboard to fit their brand, and includes full text and image customization.

Last year, Livedrive launched an app for Google’s Chromebook designed to give Livedrive customers access to their files stored online, which can total as much as 5TB. The app also allows users to stream their music and video files from the cloud, and upload files with one click.
