ThisLife Changes the Game for Storing Photos and Videos in the Cloud


Award-Winning App Leverages Amazon Glacier to Deliver a Rich User Experience at New, Industry-Low Prices

Palo Alto, Ca. (PRWEB) November 28, 2012

Photo & Video Cloud provider ThisLife announces pricing plans between 30% to 60% less than competing cloud services.  As one of the first applications to leverage Amazon Glacier, ThisLife is now able to protect a lifetime of digital memories for only $3 per month for each 25,000 Photos or 100GB--70% less than competing providers.

"Leveraging Amazon Glacier we can provide our customers with the peace of mind of knowing that their photos and videos are safe and secure,” said ThisLife Co-founder and CEO Andrea Johnson. "We've designed ThisLife so it's easy to affordably protect all of your memories, take them with you wherever you go, and instantly access them on the web, phone or tablet."

Unlike other photo cloud services that are designed for all file types, ThisLife is focused only on photos and videos. The award-winning UI allows users to view, organize and interact with all of their memories seamlessly, rather than displaying them as files in a series of folders. ThisLife's integrated search capabilities and facial recognition make it possible to instantly find photos and videos by Person, Place, or Activity, then view, share and organize them into Stories, ThisLife's version of albums.

In recognition of ThisLife's innovative use of cloud technology to create a break-through user experience, Amazon Web Services is highlighting ThisLife at their re:Invent conference this week in Las Vegas.

“A key focus area for AWS is to help companies get started by offering a technology infrastructure with no capital expense and low pay as you go pricing, and providing a technology platform with a broad functionality and global scale,” said Ariel Kelman, Head of Worldwide Marketing, AWS.  “This year, at the first AWS re:Invent conference, we have pushed “getting started” to a new level by creating a dynamic, live stage environment for start-up companies to launch publicly for the first time.  We're excited to have ThisLife participate and show off their innovation on AWS.”

Users can get started at and in a few minutes have all their photos instantly imported from social services including, Facebook, Instagram, Shutterfly, Google's Picasa, Twitter and others. Using ThisLife's desktop clients for Mac and Windows, users can easily upload and protect all the photos and videos on their computer, phones, and SD cards.

ThisLife is free to start for the first 1000 photos and then offers the lowest price in the market for storing and viewing your photos and videos at $3 per month. ThisLife grows with users needs, each additional 25,000 photos or 100GB is only another $3 per month.

ThisLife is the best permanent home for all your digital memories, combining the convenience and safety of cloud storage with an award-winning user interface and intuitive, one-of-a-kind features to make organizing and sharing a lifetime of memories easy and fun. Launched in 2012 by Matt and Andrea Johnson, ThisLife is a Palo Alto-based, private company funded by Madrona Venture Group, Morado Venture Partners and other private investors.
