Diino is a fairly small company offering an online storage and backup service with decent value prices. It lacks some of the features its bigger competitors offer, but still provides a good service. It has also made the effort to be compatible with all 3 of the main operating system platforms which scores extra points in our opinion.
Diino caters for both home and business users, but in our opinion it will be mostly home users that will sign up for the service. There aren't enough features to provide everything a business needs from an online backup solution, but home users should find the service perfectly adequate and easy to use. The plans on offer are good value and even the lower priced 100 GB option should be enough for most users.
The service can be accessed through either the desktop client or the web based interface. Both are well designed, look great and make it easy to backup your files. The main difference is that the desktop client provides support for automatic backup, but the web interface means you can access your files anywhere. We particularly like the fact that the desktop client is available for Windows, Mac or Linux which, combined with the support for multiple computers linked to one account, makes for a versatile backup solution.
Once you have some files uploaded, Diino lets you share them with anyone you like just by sending a link via email. This saves on sending huge email attachments if you have long videos or something similar to share. Any photos you upload can also be published as an online slideshow that anyone can view at a unique web address. We particularly like the fact that you can edit the photos inside a web browser before publishing them.
Diino needs to do better if it hopes to attract corporate users, but as a home backup service it will do the job just fine. We think the stand-out feature is that you can install the client on as many computers as you like and backup their hard drives to one account. This is something many companies charge extra for so Diino is well worth considering if you have a household full of computers to backup.
