Amazon Expands Cloud Drive to Italy and Spain

Running out of space on your hard disk? Amazon can help. The retail giant announced this morning that their cloud storage service, Amazon Cloud Drive, is now available in more European countries. In addition to the recent launches in the UK, Germany,and France, Amazon customers in Spain and Italy can now securely store all of their digital files in the Amazon cloud.

“Cloud Drive makes digital file storage simple and secure – two very important features for customers who want to organize and manage precious files like photos,” said Russell Dicker, director of Cloud Drive for Amazon. “Now you never have to worry about losing important documents or photos to hard drive crashes, or not being able to access files that are spread between a number of devices.”

The content can be accessed using the Cloud Drive Windows and OSX Apps from any web browser – and soon, from the new Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. Amazon has also rolled out a number of improvements to Cloud Drive today, including more sharing options (US customers only) as well as a new automagic upload option for iPhoto albums.
