Iomega Personal Cloud: Remote Access of Network Storage Server

  • The cloud is a huge presence hovering above CES, but for those who are squeamish at the idea of using mass shared storage, Iomega is offering mini-servers that function as “personal clouds.”
  • The concept is essentially an easy-to-use means of accessing an NAS server at home from anywhere via the Internet.
  • Iomega Personal Cloud also allows users to share files with up to 250 members.
  • When not in use the unit automatically powers down to a 1-volt sleep mode.
  • An entry-level 4TB setup costs about $899, and the units scale up to 12TB. Available from Fry’s Electronics and online.
  • Where to see it: Intel Booth, Central Hall 7253; Iomega, Venetian Renaissance Suite
