Against the sector’s giants

In 2021, Infomaniak had a 35% growth in France and a turnover of 30 million euros (a 23% increase compared to 2020). With the launch of its privacy-friendly free storage and email offering and the opening of its superb Public Cloud at very competitive prices, the Swiss cloud player is attracting more and more business customers and individuals.

Remember that a year after the launch of its free e-mail address with 3 GB of kDrive storage, Infomaniak has increased the space dedicated to files to 15 GB. While the themes of data sovereignty and respect for privacy are at the heart of the news, this offer is an alternative to the offers from Google with Drive and from Microsoft with OneDrive.

It also includes a collaborative storage service that allows you to edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents online, an unlimited video conferencing solution, complete electronic messaging with synchronization of contacts and appointments, and a transfer that allows you to send up to 50 GB. Wizards help users set up these services on their devices and import their data from most messaging systems and clouds on the market (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail and Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, NextCloud, etc.).
