Yandex.Disk: Cloud Syncing & Storage From Yandex

Israel Nicolas 30-07-2012

Yandex, known as the Russian Google, has tipped its hat to cloud computing with Yandex.Disk – a new service to rival Dropbox and Skydrive. While this app will be a hit for Yandex users, its more-than-compelling 10GB of free cloud storage could make it appealing to other markets.

Like other popular services in this space, Yandex.Disk syncs files using a desktop client similar to Dropbox, where you can drag files to the Yandex.Disk folder to upload/sync your files.  It also includes a web interface for easy access on the browser, as well as apps for Android and iOS.

Users start with 3GB of free storage, but you can easily get to 10GB by installing the desktop client, performing your first upload, and then sharing the service to Facebook and Twitter. It also supports attachment syncing with Yandex mail, camera uploads, and group sharing.

The online interface and app design is far behind what Dropbox and Skydrive can offer, but if it gets the job done, that may be more than enough for Yandex users to buy-in, especially if you add the free 10GB cloud storage which is larger than most of the current offers.

Overall, Yandex.Disk is a good first try from the popular Russian search engine. It is currently available by invite only, but expect the floodgates to open in the next couple of weeks.

    This service looks promising, especially with 10GB space for starter, it also has WebDav support!
