A new web storage service, offering global netizens 30Gbytes of space for free, has gone live.

Humyo.com - a UK-based site - allows users to store pictures, music, documents, and share specific folders with friends and family. The site has reserved 25Gbytes for music, movies and snaps, and 5Gbytes for ‘other files'.

The storage service also offers a dedicated PC app called Humyo Client, designed to automatically back-up a user's data and sync it with their PC.

Additionally, Humyo lets users embed its own player in e-mails or websites such as Facebook and MySpace, so people can views their photos and videos. Users can also view and access their files via their mobile phone.

"Over 100,000 users have already signed-up and are storing 89.9Tbytes of content from Word documents to videos and music," stated Dan Conlon, Humyo's founder.

On the security front, the site uses 256-bit encryption, firewall protection and server clusters. According to the firm, Humyo's servers are physically located in a former Bank of England vault, featuring "bomb-blast corridors, solid granite and blast-proof steel gates."

Capacity upgrades are available to users at a cost. For information about storage plans and pricing details, click here.
