(The Hosting News) – Shortly following its debut just last month, new cloud service Mega is keeping busy with new announcements.
Last Wednesday, the company announced the appointment of CEO Vikram Kumar who formerly headed InternetNZ.
Mega is currently in beta and arrives after the shutdown of its predecessor Megaupload last year due to copyright concerns from the U.S. government.
“Since launch just over two weeks ago, the company has had some stellar successes, with over two million subscribers joining MEGA.co.nz. I look forward to building on this initial success to develop MEGA into a significant company on the international Internet stage,” commented Kumar via a press release.
Available via MEGA.co.nz, the service provides users with up to 50 free GB of cloud storage space.
The new CEO appointment wasn’t the only thing Mega recently announced. The service also integrated a solution from a popular browser. “Firefox is now #MEGA. Install our extension and enjoy blazing transfer speeds. On your next visit you will get an option to install it,” wrote company founder Kim Dotcom via Twitter.
Dotcom is currently facing extradition from his home in New Zealand to face piracy charges within the United States. Dotcom, meanwhile, has insisted Megaupload operated within legality.
