Product

Space Monkey is taking the cloud out of the datacenter creating a faster, cheaper, and more durable way to store and access data, from any device.

Space Monkey provides one terabyte of online storage for only $10 a month. Because Space Monkey is not burdened by the overhead of datacenters like other cloud services, this translates into more storage at a fraction of the price for consumers.

Space Monkey provides each user a storage device which plugs into their home network; This device ensures that the user's data is always protected through its peer-to-peer network. Once files are pushed to the network, they are safe even if the user’s own device loses internet or power, breaks, is stolen, or otherwise destroyed.

Space Monkey provides easy access to data through a simple Space Monkey Folder, from any device including iOS and Android mobile devices, Windows, Mac and Linux clients, as well as any other web browser enabled technology from any connected location in the world.

Why Us?

Space Monkey re-creates the cloud by moving storage assets out of datacenters and into people's homes. This allows us to provide more storage, more cheaply, with faster transfer rates and far less energy consumption than the industry can hope to provide with traditional means. This approach has a much higher-degree of technical difficulty to pull off well, which is why most companies have never tried it. For engineers working at Space Monkey, this provides a wealth of intellectually challenging problems to solve, every day, and that has allowed us to attract some really smart individuals to the team.
