Bitcasa has announced the beta availability of its new CloudFS Platform, a service for app developers to leverage the company's scalable cloud storage technology. General availability of the platform will be available later this year.

With APIs developers can:

- Create structured file systems in the cloud.

- Implement privacy and security controls.

- Optimize performance and network bandwidth through smart caching that analyzes use patterns for efficient storage.

- Provide rich media services with streaming and transcoding.

For organizations that want to deploy branded cloud storage services, the Bitcasa Turn-key Drive provides the ability to create their own cloud services for customers. Additionally, Bitcasa provides direct access to regionalized cloud storage options across multiple public cloud providers, without writing any custom code. 

Developers interested in signing up for API access can register on the Bitcasa CloudFS Platform website.
