Connected Data Updates Transporter Data Storage Device
The ability of Transporter devices to share with each other regardless of location enables businesses to create a network of shared files with others.Data storage and sharing specialist Connected Data announced enhancements to the company's Transporter private data sharing and storage device, as well as version 2.0 of the Transporter software suite, which offers a simplified user experience, added key functionality and the extension of its file sharing and storage benefits to mobile devices. Available through a national network of partners in June, the Transporter enhancements include improvements for access and transfer of terabytes of files on limited storage devices. With the Transporter, all data is stored on authorized devices to ensure privacy, but also provides users with global access and unlimited sharing and, unlike cloud services, the Transporter is a one-time purchase with no monthly charge. Transporter can be used as a standalone private cloud or shared with other Transporter devices. The ability of Transporter devices to communicate and share with each other regardless of location enables consumers and businesses to create a network of shared files with other contacts. "With the rise of mobile computing, consumers need robust technology solutions that enable them to share and access files on the go," Dave Reinsel, group vice president at IT research firm IDC, said in a statement. "Solutions like Connected Data's provide a completely private, peer-to-peer offering, with all data hosted only on authorized devices. Connected Data is on the right path having sold thousands of Transporter units in the first few months of production."
Transporter 2.0 will be a free software upgrade for all existing customers, and for new customers, Transporter starts at a suggested retail price of $199 without a hard drive, $299 for 1TB and $399 for 2TB, a company release noted.
