Seagate brings a Cloud into your home
Everyone is talking about this “cloud” business. A network that can be accessed any place and at any time. You store your files onto it and load a program and next thing you know your files are accessible. Some devices come with connection to an iCloud or Cloud like services, however Seagate brings you up to 3 TERABYTES of storage to your home, laptop and smartphone.
Seagate’s GoFlex Home Network Storage System is exactly what you are looking for. It acts as your own personal cloud to store files, documents, photos, videos, and music and then you can access those files on either your Mac or PC or game console and smartphone. But the question remains, how well does it work and is this your ultimate solution. Well let’s find out shall we?
What is this “cloud”?
The term cloud is used to describe any content that can be accessed from anywhere. All your files and data held in some imaginary place that can be downloaded or streamed to your laptop, computer or smartphone. Which means you don’t need the actual files right in front of you instead you can access it remotely.
This is what the GoFlex Home Network does for you. Store all your files onto this hard drive and then have the availability of accessing it remotely whenever you need it. That flexibility in portable networking is fantastic. The ability to have your files at your home and used in the office without the need of an outside provider leaves you very open to running a presentation or showing your friends some photos from the European vacation without the need of lugging anything extra around.
