Wuala, a free secure online storage service from French storage hardware vendor LaCie, at CES 2010 offered a glimpse of what it thinks the future of cloud-based storage for consumers will look like. Wuala users start out with 1 GB of free storage, and they can obtain additional capacity by trading their idle disk space or by purchasing more storage.

Wuala files are encrypted before leaving the user's computer, which means no one, not even LaCie, has access to the files. If security is a hurdle for companies looking to get into the cloud, Wuala's service looks like it could assuage their concerns.
