Love the idea of cloud storage providers but don't want to trust your data with the big guys? One more of your options is about to go away. Copy, the cloud storage service from Barracuda, is shutting down on May 1st, 2016.
Copy has been around for four years, and during that time, the Android app has been pretty decent. The Play Store shows the app having been installed between 500,000 and 1,000,000 times. That sounds impressive, until you consider that Microsoft OneDrive has over 50,000,000 installs. Additionally, we can assume only a minority of Copy users transitioned into paying customers. I was one of those installs, and I got this email last month.
To be fair, I only created an account so that I could write a post about Copy, and I have nothing particularly negative to say about the service. Though, I'm not sure if that's better or worse.
Either way, Copy presumably did not draw in enough revenue to be worth the continued effort, and Barracuda is now going to apply those resources to other areas. The company is also closing down CudaDrive, its cloud storage service for enterprise customers.
