Today marks the official public debut of Bitcasa , the startup we first met at TechCrunch Disrupt back in September 2011 that promises to replace traditional hard drives with its own cloud-based “infinite drive” system. The company has been available in beta form for some months, but it’s now launching to be available to the public across a number of devices and operating systems — iOS, Android, Mac desktop, Windows desktop and RT, as well as the web. Bitcasa’s promise is a big one: It purportedly provides a less expensive and more convenient option for storage that’s still as completely secure as a physical external hard drive you’d buy and run yourself. The company says its service, which costs $10 per month and $99 for a full year, functions as a “magic external hard drive” that never degrades or runs out of space.
