Learn how our document data model can map directly to how you program your app, and native database features like secondary indexes, geospatial and text search give you full access to your data. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

Bitcasa API powered by 3scaleToday Bitcasa launches its Secure Storage API for developers, powered by 3scale. Bitcasa is an encrypted 1TB hard drive in the cloud. The Bitcasa REST API provides a plug-and-play filesystem for all your mobile, web, and desktop apps. Your apps can now benefit from the power of secure, shareable, streaming, and device-independent storage.

API in Action

Bitcasa has users in over 140 countries and currently manages over 40PB of user data.  Several API partners have developed applications that demonstrate the Bitcasa API in action:

  • Plex Cloud Sync uses Bitcasa as part of its media streaming solution. Users can stream their movies, photos and music to any device straight from the cloud — without the hassles of running media servers or dealing with proxies and firewalls.
  • Kloudless puts the Bitcasa cloud directly into your Gmail and Outlook inboxes. Kloudless created a Bitcasa plugin that enables users to move, store, and share email attachments in the cloud.
  • Otixo aggregates many popular cloud services into a single app for managing files. Otixo integrated the Bitcasa API to create Otixo “Spaces.” These virtual workspaces enable users to easily share, track and comment across files and folders with multiple people.
