New Cloudbox From Lacie Keeps Your Data Safe
LaCie now has a new cloud storage system called the CloudBox (shown top) that is essentially a hard drive that backs up your files both locally and wireless to a cloud-based platform. When it comes to data protection, you’re always going to want to have a backup in case there are technical difficulties over the cloud (on the web).
For $200 a year, users will get 100GB of cloud data storage. The device itself costs $200 and the first year of storage is free. Users can then opt to either renew the contract or drop the cloud service.
Although we are not sure about contract renewal prices, I would guess it would be about $8 a month. With LaCie, you know your data is secured as all data is entirely encrypted. The password you set for your storage is kept locally on the hard drive, making it safe against online hackers who may gain access to the cloud platform.
If you’re a small business just getting your feet wet on the interwebz, this may be the solution for you to get the ball rolling. Check out the video below to learn about the hardware/software from LaCie themselves!
