I got an e-mail the other day from Akshay Luther. Akshay used to work at Readify but decided to leave and start his own start-up a little while ago. Akshay recently announced that his start-up BigSafeBox has gone live.
BigSafeBox is a way to backup your files on the Internet using a special backup agent that Akshay has developed. The program runs in the system tray on your computer and regularly backs up your data “in the cloud”. Behind the scenes BigSafeBox uses the Amazon S3 storage system so you know that it is not sitting in some garage somewhere just waiting for the next natural disaster to wipe it out.
I’ve got a lot of respect for someone who leaves a good consulting role and starts their own company, especially a company that sells a product. There is something pure about that kind of business model.
Well done Akshay!
