Pretty soon after the Ubuntu 9.04 release, the Canonical Group launches Ubuntu One – a service to store your data online and sync between multiple Ubuntu computers. It is seen as a step to take Ubuntu to more people and project Ubuntu as a viable & productive platform.
The service is currently in invitation-based Beta mode, which requires you to have an invite to use/test it. To request an invite, you need to have a Launchpad account and sign in at Ubuntu One and wait for a confirmation mail.
- Synchronize your files between multiple Ubuntu computers
- Easy access to the stored files. A web interface is available.
- Free account: 2 GB storage.
Paid account: $10/month for 10 GB.
Ubuntu One requires Ubuntu 9.04 or greater, with a high speed internet connection and standards-compliant web browser like Firefox.
