Maxis Loker- Cloud based Personal File Storage

Maxis launched it cloud based personal file storage service yesterday called Loker. The service is the first among the mobile operators in Malaysia and comes with a free 5GB storage for all Maxis customers.

Key benefits of using the Maxis Loker service are:

  • sync and store your personal content such as pictures, videos, contacts, calender and files to the Cloud.
  • ability to access your content from any device such as mobile phones, computers and tablets.
  • share them with your friends and family through email or social network sites such as facebook, twitter and more.

T. Kugan, Head of Product, Device, Innovation & Roaming, said, “Recent trends have shown that Malaysians are one of the most active in sharing their experiences online using pictures and videos, and Maxis customers have led the way in this area. We are pleased to provide the Loker service that will enable them to continue to do so safely and securely without the limitations of physical storage on their devices. With Loker, our customers will have the freedom to store a much higher volume of digital content. A 5GB storage space is equivalent to 5,000 pictures or 2,500 songs, so you can imagine the sheer size of it.

“With the launch of Loker, loyal Maxis customers now enjoy a simpler, safer way of keeping more of their personal data and content within easy reach. This is a true testament of our commitment to continuously enrich their lives,” he said.

Maxis said that customers can be assured that all their content and data kept in their Loker account is secure and safeguarded as it is stored in the Maxis Cloud, which ensures the privacy of customers’ digital content in line with the guidelines set by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM).

Maxis Loker will automatically back-up and sync content whenever WiFi is available or via Maxis’ 3G network. Saved content will be differentiated under specific categories such as ‘photos’, ‘videos’ and ‘contacts’ for convenient navigation.

Maxis Loker is available on Android and BlackBerry devices and tablets, as well as PCs and Macs, with more device platforms to be made available soon. There is also an option to upgrade the 5GB storage space at any time to 10GB at RM15 a month or 25GB at RM25 a month.
