After having used Bitcasa for the past two months, the potential is obvious.

There are still a few things to work out, however…

First and foremost: there is no ‘headless’ client.

Using the Ubuntu client on a headless server requires installing the X Libraries, a window manager, and a VNC server so that it runs in it’s own (networked) GUI.

The client itself feels unpolished, and moving a large folder from a ‘backup’ folder to an ‘endless’ folder requires re-uploading the files.

Moving forward,

thinking towards having a cloud server downloading files and serving them through Plex to all the different devices, including Raspberrys (Raspberries?); something like Bitcasa makes more and more sense: Download to an infinite drive, and you can move servers at will, or scale up/down on the fly without having to worry about shuffling terabytes of files between instances…
