Recently, it was reported in the media that popin, a Baidu company, launched its online disk product dubox for foreign users. Users can use 1TB of free space and download without speed limit when registering. Currently, dubox is still in the public beta stage. However, according to the actual measurement of many netizens, the download speed of dubox is 22K / s, which is not even as good as Baidu online disk in China.
I try Baidu disk, found that the download speed of non member accounts can reach several megabytes per second.
In terms of overall functions, dubox is also inferior to Baidu's domestic version. For example, Baidu's non paying users can expand to 2T of free space, while dubox only provides 1t of free space.
In addition, dubox only supports storage and download, and does not provide a variety of cloud document processing services such as online document editing as Baidu online disk.
At present, with the continuous maturity of 5g technology, cloud storage is ushering in new development opportunities. Baidu online disk launched the international version of dubox, which is obviously a test of overseas market. According to the data, at present, Dropbox and icloud are the main cloud storage service providers in foreign countries. Both the business model and the business model of the Ibox are dominated. For example, icloud only provides 5GB of free storage, and users need to pay $19.90 a month to upgrade to 1TB.
From the current outflow of information, it seems that dubox is trying to copy the successful experience in China, and in the future, it may embark on the strategy of speeding up the payment users, so as to provide a new service mode for overseas users.
