Mylio, the App That Protects Your Precious Digital Memories, Introduces Bring-Your-Own-Cloud Backup

Cross-platform app for helping consumers organize and protect their photo libraries expands consumer choice, security, and privacy.

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylio, the photo organizing app of which Shutterbug Magazine said "I've got the feeling that you, like me, will quickly become hooked," announces the first of its Bring-Your-Own-Cloud file backup options. "From the beginning, providing an automatic, painless way of keeping all your pictures safe has been a key value for us here at Mylio," says Mylio founder David Vaskevitch. "And we do that very, very well. Now, we're expanding our protection functionality so that Mylio will store a copy of your originals in the cloud store of your choice, and then keep them synced as you add more."

Mylio's first offering will be Amazon Drive, which provides unlimited photo and video storage for $60/year. Providers for additional cloud service options will be released in the coming months. This feature is an option for users of the premium version of Mylio.

Choice, Security, and Privacy

Directly linked to Mylio's mission of keeping user pictures safe is its orientation to choice and privacy: unlike big, corporate photo storage solutions, Mylio doesn't lock consumers into proprietary services, nor does it mine data from its users' files.  Mylio is a peer-to-peer organization system by default, which means photos never leave user's own, private devices. In keeping with these values of choice and privacy, Mylio's new Bring-Your-Own-Cloud solution not only lets users choose whether to back up your files to the cloud, it will ultimately let them choose which cloud to back up to, and it will also encrypt the files stored and there.

There are three benefits to users who choose to set up Mylio like this:

  1. Protection. Even if all your computers, tablets, phones, and disks are lost or destroyed, your pictures will still be safe, and can be restored when you get new hardware.
  2. Access. If you're traveling and need access to originals (or even previews), as long as you have an Internet connection, Mylio can pull them down from the cloud.
  3. Replication hub. Today, at least two Mylio devices – phone, tablet, or computer – must be turned on and running so that they can replicate each other. However, once your pictures are in the cloud, any Mylio-enabled device will bring itself up to date by talking to the cloud.

Mylio can be downloaded at www.mylio.com, or through the Apple iOS or Android app stores. Mylio supports personal computers running OSX 10.9 or later, Windows 7 SP1 or later, iPads, iPhones and iPod Touch running iOS 7 or later, and Android tablets and phones running KitKat 4.4 or later.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations.
