IMPORTANT: TransIP's STACK free storage plan will be discontinued

Anyone who uses STACK Storage (a free 1000 GB cloud storage service from the Dutch hosting company TransIP), should note that TransIP will discontinue this service shortly.

After 2 incidents of hard drives failing in their datacenters, TransIP announced that the free storage plan will be discontinued. Accounts that were not logged in in the past year will be locked on November 12. If you log in to the TransIP control panel before that date, you can connect to your STACK and download your files up to February 14, 2021. On that date, all free accounts and data will be deleted.

You have the option to convert your free account to a paid account. TransIP offers a 50% discount (€3,03/month) and 250 GB additional space for the first 12 months. Otherwise you will need to find another storage solution and transfer your files there, before they will be deleted in February 2021.

Free doesn’t exist… Luckily I have my data stored at 2 locations…

This is the kind of email I actually like to get - thanks for sending it.

I got this mail too. Does anybody have good suggestions for alternatives? If I have to start paying, I’d like to compare multiple options. Alternatives preferably with storage in EU due to privacy-laws.

Also note that the € 3,03 per month is just for the first year. After that it becomes € 6,05.

I’m also interested in alternatives!

I’m very satisfied with Backblaze B2 (EU datacenter).
The price is $0.01/GB (that’s 5$ for 1TB) + download fee. I haven’t exceeded the free transactions with Duplicati.

Excl VAT.

Spijtig, Kees! Was al vele jaren trouwe en tevreden gebruiker en was net zo blij dat je voor mij die storing hebt verholpen… Nogmaals veel dank voor je hulp en veel succes met de verdere ontwikkeling van Stack!

Met vriendelijke groet,

as im very happy with Tardigrade (Storj Labs), i can recommend it. Servers are mostly around you, wherever you are, much much safer then swiss servers. And very cheap compared to all the centralized storage providers.
edit: i forgot to mention “quicker”.

nice very good i am also interested in alternatives
