Wuala by LaCie service, comes to an end! Goodbye Wuala!

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

Wuala by LaCie comes to end today (15th November 2015). You’ve maybe never heard of it, but it was one of the first pioneers of Secure Cloud Storage, that not only offered traditional Sync, similar to Dropbox, but Backup, Sync, Change Control, Version Control - with a Standalone Java Application, that operated across all platforms, to Browser Client, and support for all mobile devices. A brilliant cloud storage platform, which originally allowed you to trade up storage, by offering storage on your computers to share with the cloud, this was withdrawn, a few years after I started using it!

I came across Wuala, when I purchase a USB flash drive from LaCie, in 2010, and I’ve been using it every day, with family and friends.

It had a simple interface, and I really enjoyed using it! and I’ve not found a replacement with similar functionality, and I’ve checkout out, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, DropBox, Box and finally Tresorit

I can only assume, that since Seagate purchased LaCie in 2012, it’s not in Seagate business model, to own and run a Secure Cloud Storage company, or Seagate/LaCie could not compete with the various Cloud Storage platforms available online today, and it was running at a loss!
