Cloud storage company Syncplicity will no longer support Mac users after engineers identified a technical issue in its Mac OS X beta software that will require an indeterminate amount of time to correct, the company announced over the weekend.
Syncplicity is one of a new breed of online storage services, also including the popular Dropbox, that allow users to easily duplicate and store their files online for access from other computers or mobile devices. Files copied into a specially designated folder are automatically synced to the Syncplicity cloud service, with full versioning and rollback positioning the services as de facto backup services.
The company’s Mac client debuted in beta form in February but has now been suspended indefinitely, the Syncplicity statement said, as the company resolves “some issues which require some major changes in the client…. We felt the Mac beta client didn’t meet our standards for quality. We intend to reassess our engineering schedule early next year.”
