FileShadow will backup all of your clouds!

US startup FileShadow wants to offer providing “prosumers” and businesses a way to have all content stored on Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and Adobe Creative Cloud instantly findable regardless of location and “available for a lifetime”. FileShadow is hosted on the IBM Cloud utilising IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS).

During the beta test period the service is available free of charge from .

As cloud file services become pervasive, consumers and businesses are faced with the increasingly difficult task of cataloguing and finding their stored resources. Even more challenging is the worry of security and safety of the files in the event of cloud failure (a risk that no current entity “owns” but would cost an estimated $US19 billion in losses for the U.S. economy alone, according to Lloyd’s of London).

“FileShadow provides users with a single location for instant access to a consolidated catalogue of your files from all of your cloud storage vendors. It does not replace these vendors. Instead, it assures the instant findability and availability of your files within all of these sources by archiving and indexing each generation of every file.

"Thanks to extensive searchable meta data on each file, the file content, OCR of scanned images, file locations and vision tags, it is no longer necessary to know and remember where the files were uploaded regardless of the service you used.”

Tyrone Pike, FileShadow president and CEO, said the IBM Cloud also lays the foundation for FileShadow to connect its platform into additional advanced cloud technologies, such as AI, data analytics and Internet of Things services.
