1  Economy / Service Announcements / 2014-01-09 DataShell Press Release - Customers are actively leaving Dropbox... on: January 09, 2014, 02:39:53 PM
Press release from our website:

Customers are actively leaving Dropbox to use our service, and reporting a better experience!

Relentless Software limited, a Brighton based games developer and one of our customers, have just moved away from Dropbox. They are not the first! But Relentless have said they are keen for us to blog about this as they are genuinely upset with the level of service they have received from Dropbox.

Yesterday Relentless shared a 1.4GB file with 400 of their customers using a Dropbox public link. Dropbox then suspended their account claiming they were using too much bandwidth.

We leapt to their aid, setting them up an account allowing them to share their files via DataShell. The whole service was up in minutes and with no limit on bandwidth Relentless can have as many customers as they want downloading at maximum speed.

"After sharing a file on Dropbox we found that within 24 hours our public sharing facility had been suspended. This could have caused a huge customer support problem as our customers began to complain about a broken link. However, Datashell was not only able to share the files instantly and with no limitation, but that we had no problems reported from our customers either." – Andy Eades, CEO, Relentless Software

Relentless have allowed us to share the file to readers of this article. It’s a windows version of their hit game Blue Toad Murder Files ‘The Mysteries of Little Riddle’. See here for a video trailer for the game or here to purchase a copy on iTunes. Or a full free windows version is available here hosted on our Datashell servers.

Users will be able to download this file an unlimited number of times because DataShell is a truly unlimited service.

Follow this link to access a free trial copy of this game and judge Datashell's download speeds for yourself.

Our intentional customers are consistently reporting excellent download and upload speeds. This is because our UK servers are peered with faster networks and have multiple entry points. DataShell is a truly unlimited service.

Join the revolution, join DataShell today.

We are a UK based company offering unlimited data storage and backup for Bitcoin.
2  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-11-26 Coindesk - Data Storage Startup Datashell Only Accepts Bitcoins on: November 26, 2013, 10:43:08 PM
DataShell decides to launch its service exclusively for Bitcoin to address Dropbox's abandonment of the community:

Datashell is a backup and storage service with features similar to Dropbox. Its current price plans are aimed at small businesses, offering two annual subscription plans costing 0.10 BTC and 0.28 BTC. Datashell claims that both plans come with “unlimited” storage, although the cheaper plan will only back up data on five connected machines. The more expensive plan offers users unlimited connections.

See the full article here.

So far as we know, we are the first and only company jumping in to offer backup exclusively and only for Bitcoin. Other companies are merely dipping their toe in the water at best: Mega lets you buy a voucher from another supplier you can redeem at their site; whist other services are running a limited trial which they have hidden in the depths of their website. We are doing this as we feel Dropbox has abandoned a large potential demographic of its users and we want to show it and other companies that there is money to be made offering quality services for just Bitcoin.

4  Economy / Service Announcements / DataShell: A New Backup & Storage System Accepting Bitcoin (Dropbox alternative) on: October 29, 2013, 12:42:31 PM

DataShell Backup is our new unlimited backup and storage service that can only be purchased with bitcoin. It runs on Windows, MacOS, Android, iPhone & iPad.

We currently offer two versions of DataShell Backup: DataShell SOHO (Small Office Home Office) which retails at 0.1BTC and DataShell Enterprise retailing at 0.28BTC. Please email to place an order.

And yes: it really is unlimited – you can store as much data as you want.

About Us.

Whilst developing our backup and storage service over the last year we have been watching the Dropbox voting threads with interest. And being active members of the Bitcoin community we feel that Dropbox has ignored an excellent opportunity. So we want to prove that a business can survive offering quality products and services just for bitcoin. It's a daring experiment but one we hope you'll help us prove it right.

The DataShell backup and storage system is fully tested and working; having been deployed to fifty trialists earlier this year. This next stage is to test our business plan with this exclusive Bitcoin launch. More services are in development now so if things go well expect more services from us exclusively for Bitcoin.

We know what Bitcoin is capable of and are hoping to eventually automate payment with a shopping cart that processes transactions directly off the blockchain. At this stage we are taking all orders by email, so if you want to place an order please email us at with your preferred username.

See our website for the latest news and announcements.
