LaCie announced CloudBox, their first hybrid storage device combining 100GB of local storage with 100GB of secure online storage. When you store data on the CloudBox, it is also backed up in the Cloud — ensuring your data is always safe, secure and accessible.
With the CloudBox you don't have to worry about backing up in multiple places, it has double protection built-in. The CloudBox ensures your data is backed up on a local hard drive and again in the cloud. Having double protection means you no longer have to worry about your data.
Fast and Efficient File Restoration
No matter where you are or what may happen to your CloudBox — damage, theft or fire — you'll always have an online copy of your files. If you want to recover everything, the CloudBox can restore your entire online backup. If you just want to restore certain files, the CloudBox's Online Restore application allows you to browse and restore selections of files and folders, up to 10 previous versions.
No other product offers a one-step process for backing up your files in two places, ensuring you always have a second copy for ultimate data security. Simply backup files from your PC or Mac computer to the CloudBox — local backup ensures quick file access and restoration in case of PC failure. Then the Cloudbox automatically sends a copy of your files to the cloud, daily — ensuring your data is safe and accessible from anywhere. The best part is the CloudBox performs the online backup independently, so you are free to disconnect your notebook.
The CloudBox provides multiple levels of data security including two copies of your files and 128-bit AES data encryption. Unlike other cloud storage offerings, your files are encrypted before they are sent to the cloud — meaning no one, not even LaCie, has access to your most important files. The CloudBox ensures 100% security from data loss.
