This is just stupid. It's a normal HDD/NAS branded with the stupid "cloud" tag so that more n00bs brainwashed with the "cloud" BS would buy it. There's nothing new about it. I could have that kind of "cloud" 4 years ago if I wanted to.
I just can't believe how few posts up there,there are about this article. This is so vital to talk about how the cloud concept is getting closer & how they are slowly doing it by moving in this new tech for us to get use to.

Yea it does, the cloud is just some HDD sitting somewhere connected to the net so you can access it from anywhere. That is all the cloud is, the rest is all hype and marketing, it's offsite data backup that you can access anywhere, anytime. The only thing the big clouds have over this is more HDDs and redundancy, but this is just a stripped down basic cloud.
