Cx is a cloud storage and data file management startup that provides users with a secure, stable, scalable platform to backup, synchronize, share and manage their data from anywhere using any device.
Cx acts as a complete sync and backup service. Full sync and backup of calendar, email photos data applications, and settings.
Unlike some of the “closed system” competitors; the Cx plan is to work with any email and calendar client/service/account.
Cx will be offering social networking sharing aggregation. Cx will act as the user’s social sharing command center.
Share once and you are able to share among all of your social networks, as well as, sharing on specific designated social networks. The user will also have control over who sees what.
Its Not Like DropBox:
CX sits in the background and automatically uploads any new files added or created on your computer, up to the cloud.
This full file synchronization allows you to set it and forget it and CX will take care of the rest. Dropbox requires you to drag and drop the file to the Dropbox folder.
How It Works:
The best way to add multiple files is by using their free desktop software. Once you have downloaded and installed the desktop application, you can start loading files to your Cx account in two ways.
First, the application creates a folder on your desktop. The folder’s name is ‘CX Sync’. Anything that you save in the CX Sync folder will get saved up to your Cx account.
This happens in the background, while your computer is on and connected to the Internet.
Second, by using the Preference window on the desktop software, you can set the Cx software to upload any file on your computer (iTunes, Photos, Documents, Movies, etc.).
When you add the folder, Cx will start uploading those files to your Cx Account. Depending on the amount of data, it may take a little while to get everything up on Cx.
Best Part Is:
Cx users own their data and are able to take all of their data and activity with them if they choose to leave the Cx network. Other sharing sites actually own the data you store on their servers. Not at Cx.
Other good thing is that its providing 10GB storage capacity while Dropbox offer only 2GB storage capacity.
Watch out this startup.It could be huge in 2012.
