There's a new website that is offering 10GB of free cloud storage. Trouble is, the website is only in Russian, at least right now. The service launched today as a beta and is the latest in a growing number of cloud storage services providers. It is a system similar to DropBox where files can be stored locally and remotely.

The file then updates among the versions when you save it on your desktop, for instance. The files are accessible from the web, a native Windows or Mac client, or through the Yandex.Mail app on iOS and Android devices. "Yandex.Disk is a cloud service, a virtual folder that can be safely used for file storage," Anton Zabannykh, Yandex's head of Personalized Services, said in a statement. "If your personal computer or laptop catches a virus or breaks down, your files will be safely stored on Yandex.Disk. Currently, Yandex.Disk is integrated with Yandex.Mail, and we have plans to link it with other services offered by Yandex."

 

The service is currently available by invitation only, so users have to e-mail the site to grab an account. They say that the English version is coming soon, but there is no set date. We will have to wait and see if there is anything that distinguishes these guys from the other service providers that are already established. If you speak Russian, you can head on over to their site and sign up. It is available here.
