CHICAGO, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- SpiderOak today announced an upgrade to its suite of online backup-related services for home and business users. New features in SpiderOak 2.0 include a fourfold increase in application speed, faster file retrieval from extra-large folders, and reduced memory usage during backups as well as browsing. These enhancements augment SpiderOak's other benefits, including 'multi computer - multi platform - single location' backup and advanced de-duplication that cuts backup/sync time by as much as 90% while conserving storage space.

SpiderOak ( enables users to store, backup, access, share and (later this year) sync files to their personal "SuperCloud" from any combination of Windows, Mac and Linux computers as well as external storage media. No other service offers this full range of functionality, operating system support, or device acceptance.

These capabilities allow users to create a virtual personal network from which they can access stored documents, music, photos, movies and other data 24x7 from any computer anywhere in the world with a click -- including historical versions and deleted files that are irretrievable with most online storage and synchronization services.

Other unique SpiderOak features include the ability to create password-protected 'ShareRooms' for access by designated users, the ability to aggregate multiple devices on one account to take advantage of bulk storage rates, and an industry-first no-password-storage security policy that prevents even SpiderOak employees from viewing user information including file and folder names.

SpiderOak is free for the first 2GB of storage, $10/month from 2 to 100GB, and $10/month for each additional 100GB increment for an unlimited number of devices.
