Online storage is an industry forecast to grow 500% by 2012 according to Gartner. On the bleeding edge of this market is UK-based LiveDrive - a company that is now offering its customers unlimited online storage. Yes, you read that right - unlimited.

Andrew Michael, CEO, commented, "60% of people now have more than one computer. With a growing number of people having more than one device - such as a desktop computer, a netbook and PDA - it no longer makes sense to store files individually on each device. People want all their files together in one place that is accessible from any device."

LiveDrive is unique amoung online storage providers in that they offer customers a software application that can be installed on any computer. This provides the users with access to their Livedrive storage - the same way a USB or external hard drive might work.

Livedrive is offering the unlimited storage plan for $129.95 a year, but has a starter account which is limited to 100GB for $55.95 a year. Perhaps a little pricey for those just getting started, unless you really need it!

500GB WD external drive is retailing for $89.95 right now, and that will almost certainly be the price point for a TB of storage by this time next year, so $129/year is hardly a bargain unless you're the Library of Congress - and the potential security risks of have all of your data stored online by a third-party makes this a questionable option. There's certainly a market for online storage, but Livedrive is priced well above the market.

You can buy a 1TB for $89.95 and an external USB Case for $15, in Canada.
