SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Bitcasa, the company that makes cloud storage simple and secure, today announced that it has been named an Advanced Technology Partner by Amazon Web Services (AWS), validating the strength of its secure and scalable cloud storage solutions.
Bitcasa enables secure and flexible Amazon S3 storage; data replication and mobility; and data consolidation across AWS regions. Developers can select the best combination of data centers to meet their needs without writing any custom code. Additionally, for developers looking to leverage structured file systems, Bitcasa recently introduced the Bitcasa CloudFS API, which adds advanced functionality on top of the Amazon S3 cloud infrastructure. It provides developers with a proven, secure and scalable file system with private key encryption, and media transcoding services to save development time and to optimize overall storage performance.
"Bitcasa built its consumer cloud storage service on Amazon S3 and our technology was proven on their infrastructure, storing more than 45 petabytes of data for customers in 140 countries," said Brian Taptich, Bitcasa CEO. "Working with trusted storage partners such as Amazon will help us continue to provide developers with the most reliable and best experience possible."
For distributors, resellers, network operators, telcos and OEMs that want their own branded cloud service, Bitcasa also offers a Turn-key Drive, which enables partners to go to market immediately with their own cloud storage solution as a profit center instead of a cost center. These customers and partners receive all the functionality that Bitcasa offers consumers while owning their customers' entire experience, as opposed to handing their customer off to a third party for storage.
With both the CloudFS API and the Turn-key Drive, Bitcasa gives its customers the ability to quickly integrate and offer secure, high performance cloud services, while controlling their brand, user data and experience. Bitcasa leverages Amazon's network of regional data centers to store users' data in the region in which it's created, for added performance and data privacy.
The Amazon Partner Network (APN) is the global partner program of Amazon Web Services. The program focuses on helping partners build a successful AWS-based business by providing business, technical, marketing, and go to market (GTM) support. As an APN Advanced Technology Partner, Bitcasa will gain access to a variety of tools, training, and support to further enhance its cloud storage services.

Bitcasa is the leader in secure and simple cloud storage solutions. Hundreds of developers and organizations look to utilize Bitcasa's patent pending technology to optimize overall storage and accelerate time to market, all without having to surrender their customers data to a third party brand. The new Bitcasa CloudFS intuitive plug and play design gives organizations improved access and scalability for regionalized storage across all devices; Android, iOS, Windows, Windows RT, Mac OSX, Linux, and the Web. Bitcasa has customers in more than 140 countries with partners that include Samsung, Huawei and Telefonica. Bitcasa is backed by top-tier investors, including Horizons Ventures, Pelion Venture Partners, First Round Capital, Samsung Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
