Cloud storage is fast becoming a pertinent need of businesses as well as individuals. With the bulk of digital data generated each day, all of us want a secure and safe place to tuck it in and then eventually access whenever required. Intel has now come up with its own Atom-based storage platform which it claims to be highly secure.
There are already a number of cloud storage options such as Dropbox and iCloud, yet what Intel offers is significantly different. The company is offering network-attached storage devices (NAS) which become a part of your organization’s network. Once that is done, you can store your backup data in NAS.
The best part about it is that Intel has coupled NAS well with the mobile devices. You can easily access your data from an NAS via a mobile or a tablet or laptop simply by logging into a browser, thus making your data truly portable.
According to the company, these storage devices come equipped with McAfee AntiVirus and VirusScan, enhancing the security of your data significantly. Moreover, the multimedia capabilities which are a part of NAS can be a very handy feature for most small businesses.
While these specifications make Intel’s NAS devices fairly impressive, the company plans to roll out a number of new features such as automated data backup as well as allowing the users to customize the sharing of their data with other users.
