Kim Dotcom recently unveiled Mega, a new service that he plans to launch on January 19, 2013. Ever since MegaUpload was taken down, Dotcom has apparently been involved in the development of the service which he claims will be the first of his kind. Now, he has given us a glimpse of one of the racks of the new Mega.
The new ‘Mega’ service is what Dotcom claims is fully protected in the legal sense. We recently registered that the U.S. government was trying to riddle ‘Mega’ with issues even before its launch, but we are hopeful that someone like Dotcom will be able to thwart such futile and illegal attempts.
Now, Dotcom has posted a new image on his Twitter account that shows off one of the racks of the new Mega service, which can hold 720 terabytes of data. This is but one of the many racks which, Dotcom says, will be arriving over the coming days.
This certainly shows that Dotcom is quite serious about his plans of launching the cloud-based Mega. The founder of the former MegaUpload claims that he and his team have learned a lot over the years, especially from the experience of MegaUpload’s take-down. And that they have poured all this learning into the creation of the new service.
One does hope that the new ‘Mega’ service does not run into the kind of troubles that MegaUpload eventually landed in. Although the takedown of MegaUpload was an illegal activity perpetuated by the U.S. authorities in collaboration with the New Zealand government, it made millions of users lose their precious data.
