Today is #worldbackupday – get 5GB of free backup storage from SpiderOak.

Today is World Backup Day, and a company named SpiderOak is giving away 5GB online storage accounts in honour of this event.

For those unfamiliar with the name SpiderOak, a good explanation would be to say that it is a “cloud based” service similiar to Dropbox, especially in the area of multiple platform support. What sets it apart from Dropbox is that it is made primarily for backup and synchronisation purposes, supporting a rich set of options such as inclusion and exclusion file-type filters.

Also unlike Dropbox, it does not require a special folder to be created on a host machine. For the paranoid in the audience, SpiderOak proudly claims that no one at the company (or others) can browse through your backup content on SpiderOak servers. This is because backup files are encrypted on the originating machine before they are transferred to the SpiderOak backup data servers, leaving a would-be snoop reading gibberish.

Conclusion – download the free SpiderOak client for the iPad and iPhone from the App Store here.

During account signup, in the Code if Applicable field, enter the promomotional code worldbackupday.

NOTE: I found out about the 5GB giveaway and promo code on Ashwin’s Blog.
