The service, called Yandex.Disk is free and allows a user to store up to 10 GB of files, and access them from any device.
The Russian search engine is ahead of the expected submission of Google and launches Yandex.Disk Drive, offering its customers 10 gigabytes of free storage in the cloud. The service can be used on any device that uses the internet: the main platform of entry is via browser, but there are clients for Windows and Mac OS. Even for users and Android IOS smarthpones there an app available that extends the service to the mobile interface.
With the example of Yandex in Russia, which accounts for 64% market share in the enormous country, or Baidu in China, one can see the different strategies to fend off Google in those countries, providing the potential clients of Mountain View maps, social networks, search, browsers, photo sharing or any service that can also offer Google. But of course, the other bad part of Yandex.Disk is more than evident: it is in Russian.
