PRESS RELEASE: KoffeePhoto adds online photo backup service
KoffeePhoto extends its photo sharing to online photo backup
Strasbourg, France - June 25th, 2008 - KoffeeWare today announced an extension to the KoffeePhoto photo sharing service with the introduction of KoffeePhoto Premium, an online photo backup service as a paying option.
Digital photography is great for its flexibility. But when it comes to make sure it resists time, specific measures need to be taken as digital photos are a compilation of people's life: weddings, babies, friends, parties, holidays… Every 15 seconds a hard drive crashes, what is done to preserve photos? Advantages of online backup over CD/DVD based backup are numerous. A quick reminder, online backup is:
- (obviously) remote (what is the need of a backup if it sits close to the computer in case of fire or theft),
- reliable (how sure to able to read CD based backup when needed which is usually after a couple of years?),
- dependable (where to find the backup CDs when needed which is usually after a couple of years),
- and inexpensive (in comparison to the cost of CDs, CD burner and the time spent backuping data).
But why using a photo dedicated online backup solution?
Numerous online storage and backup solutions exist, some are dedicated to photo storage, others provide general purpose storage. At KoffeeWare, we think that online storage benefits from being application specific. In fact, storage is only part of the story.
KoffeePhoto handles the whole photo process, from the connection to the digital camera to sharing including organizing and backuping. More, using KoffeePhoto, you may add pictures to your account without even running your own computer. Storing and backuping being completely embedded into the system, KoffeePhoto combines great ease of use and peace of mind.
Although versatile, swiss-knife-like solutions look good, application specific solutions always fulfill their mission better and easier.
KoffeePhoto introduces KoffeePhoto Premium featuring unlimited online backup of pictures. KoffeePhoto Premium provides fully automated backup and restoration of all digital picture files. Should a data loss occur, KoffeePhoto Premium will restore a whole photo library upon a single log-in, no hassle.
KoffeePhoto is available from http://www.koffeephoto.com/. KoffeePhoto Premium is priced 39,99 € a year ($59,99).
