HP Upline is now HP Offline, as the service is discontinued
We continue to see new entrants to the cloud storage space, which brand new firms popping up seemingly each week. That said, it is starting to appear that delivering a profitable and effective service is harder than it looks – especially when you’ve got high expectations, as HP did for its Upline offering.
It appears that Upline is now set to be “Offline.” We first heard the story from the Technology Expert Blog, where the team reported that the Upline online storage service would be discontinued. It seems like a rather abrupt shutdown, but HP in indicating that it will refund all charges.
We covered the launch of Upline here back in April of last year. It turns out that there was some rocky performance along the way (as reported by TechCrunch and Enterprise Storage Forum), but we didn’t see this coming from a company that has the resources of HP.
Please let us know if you’ve got more details…
