Lenovo kicks off Cloud Storage service with SugarSync help

Lenovo, SugarSync give users 5GB of cloud storage

PC maker Lenovo has teamed up with SugarSync to formally launch Lenovo Cloud Storage on computers and tablets. It will allow Lenovo's users to store or back up as much as 5GB of their documents, photos, and other files in the cloud rather than locally. Anything over 5GB needs to be paid for.

Users will still have access to the cloud storage service from non-Lenovo web-connected devices, with support for common platforms. The service will allow for group collaboration, social network sharing, and data encryption. Links sent to others will allow them to view or download the files stored in the cloud. An Outlook plugin will let users share files without having to attach them first.

Android devices use SugarSync's AutoSync tech for synchronizing photos and videos taken from the device to the PC automatically. Security comes through 128-bit AES encryption.

While the software is ready to download now, the service will launch in April and will be available on new Lenovo ThinkPad and IdeaPad notebooks as well as Android-powered IdeaTabs.
