LogMeIn Launches Cubby Cloud Storage Service to Compete With the Likes of Dropbox and iCloud

If you have ever accessed your PC remotely, there are very good chances that you did it on LogMeIn. If  you are not aware of LogMeIn, it is a well known remote desktop access, file sharing and system management service using which you can access any of your systems’ desktop from anywhere in the world.

LogMeIn have now launched their cloud sharing service, Cubby which is still in beta mode. This is a service which will be in competition with already existing cloud sharing services like Dropbox and iCloud.

Cubby-Cloud-Sharing-Service-by-LogMeInWith Cubby, your stuff is available across all your computers, tablets, and smartphones and always accessible at Cubby.com. So, every single important file that you want to access, is available at a single place. Any folder on your hard drive  can be turned into a Cubby from right where it is and synced and shared over the Internet making it accessible everywhere. Similar to Dropbox, Cubby-created folders, and subfolders, can include public links that can be sent to others for accessing and downloading content from those folders.

Now, you may think – how is Cubby different from existing services like Dropbox?

Unlike other services where you need to copy files over to a different folder, Cubby lets you keep your existing file structure, allowing you to “cloud-enable” the folders you want synced from wherever they are on your system!

You simply need to download and install the Cubby desktop application on your PC or Mac. If you want your stuff to be the same on all of your computers, then install Cubby on each of your computers. You can install it on as many computers as you like and there are no storage limits when you’re syncing between your own computers – unlimited peer-to-peer (P2P). Storage limits only apply to cubbies that are synced to the cloud.

As Cubby is currently in the beta mode, you can go to Cubby.com and enter your email address to be sent out an invite and you will get an email from Cubby team when its your turn. Also, you can download Cubby iPhone and Android apps from the links below.

  1. I had a co-worker that used it. It worked really well, she was able to access her workstation from home. Unfortunately, she also violated company security protocols and was terminated.

    So a word to wise, if you are going to use it at work, get permission first (in writing).
