Iomega personal cloud

This solution allows individual ownership over how and where to access and share data. This is a personal network connecting PCs and Macs or other intelligent devices to an Iomega StorCenter device, allowing selected users access to view, edit and share files.

The IomegaStorCenter ix2-200 network storage, cloud edition offers content sharing with advanced security, and is ideal for small and remote offices, workgroups or home networks. This is a web-based computing architecture that connects a backend StorCenter ix2 to other individuals and devices via the Internet. Unlike public and private cloud applications, Iomega’s Personal Cloud technology is self-owned, so content and accessibility is always under owner control. There are also no usage or subscription fees.


With two or more StorCenter devices, the Personal Cloud allows you to automatically replicate data from your primary business to another location. Keeping this off-site copy ensures data availability in the event of an unforeseen disaster. The Personal Cloud also offers users remote access to files from remote locations, allowing members of the cloud to easily view, edit, and share files from outside the office. Security safeguards, such as encryption and password protection, ensure data stored in the Personal Cloud cannot be accessed by unauthorised users. It can be used to monitor video surveillance devices set up in the home or across the business premises.


The personal cloud solution is hosted on an Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 compact desktop network storage device suitable for small businesses or advanced home networks. Available in 2TB, 4TB and 6TB configurations, the device provides easy file sharing, iSCSI block access and RAID 1 for optimised data protection. Business users will appreciate data protection features such as UPS support, device-to-device replication, and user replaceable drives for business continuity and disaster recovery.


Home users benefit from advanced media features such as the DLNA certified UPnP AV Media Server, Torrent media file support, Bluetooth upload, automated social media sharing to Facebook, Flickr and YouTube and digital photography tools like Picture Transfer Protocol. The built-in AV media server turns the StorCenter ix2 into a multimedia hub. It can support upto six IP based security cameras for cloud based video surveillance and storage.


Also included is the system status dashboard, part of the EMC LifeLine operating system; Cloud backup options; Torrent download management; QuikProtect backup; QuikTransfer for USB data transfer; User quotas management; Energy saving automatic hard drive spin-down and VMware and XenServer certification.
