Customers will now have free cloud storage, remote file access and digital media streaming using Pogoplug Cloud
Drobo, a storage products maker for businesses and professionals, and Pogoplug, a creator of streaming and sharing devices, have partnered to deliver a comprehensive personal cloud offering for anytime, anywhere access to files.
Drobo said its customers will have access to free cloud storage, remote file access and digital media streaming using Pogoplug Cloud, a new service announced last week.
Using Pogoplug Cloud, customers can turn their Drobo into a multi-terabyte private cloud that provides secure, remote access to their entire digital library of documents, movies, photographs, games and music files.
The agreement between Drobo and Pogoplug also provides Drobo users with 10GB of free public cloud storage – ideal for synching valuable files between Drobo and the cloud.
Drobo CEO Tom Buiocchi said small businesses, professionals, and consumers already store large collections of files on their Drobo.
"Adding remote access, media streaming and other cloud capabilities turns the Drobo into the ultimate personal cloud – combining the simple, reliable storage Drobo users have come to expect with the flexibility and freedom of the cloud," Buiocchi said.
The new platform will be designed specifically for customers who require storage capacity without the complexity and price of legacy storage, and is powered by the patented BeyondRAID technology.
