Pogoplug today announced the UK launch of its new cloud storage service that enables families and small businesses to protect, access and share large amounts of data. The service seamlessly integrates Amazon’s new Glacier storage with a Pogoplug cloud accelerator in the home or office to provide the most affordable and safest multi-user backup available.
“Amazon is revolutionizing cloud storage with Glacier. Our new offering provides the missing link by eliminating the slow retrieval time intrinsic to Glacier and making all content instantly accessible,” said Daniel Putterman, CEO of Pogoplug. “By keeping data synchronized between Amazon Glacier and a Pogoplug cloud accelerator in the home or office, we are offering unprecedented pricing for safe, fast cloud storage.”
Pogoplug’s new services make enterprise-grade cloud backup accessible to home users, freelance workers and small businesses for the first time. The Pogoplug service automatically backs up all computers and mobile devices whether users are at home or on the go and makes that content accessible and sharable from anywhere on the Internet.
In addition to storing users’ content on a Pogoplug cloud accelerator for blazingly fast backup and access in the home or office, the Pogoplug service keeps users’ data twice as safe by storing and synchronizing a secondary copy of content on Amazon Glacier. For as little as £19.99/year for 100 GB of offsite storage, the Pogoplug service provides unprecedented speed, ease of use, and affordability to consumers and small businesses.
The UK launch of this new Pogoplug service follows a successful debut in the US. “The reaction to this offering in the US has been overwhelmingly positive – it’s meeting demand for secure, fast and affordable backup that no-one else is currently offering,” says Daniel Putterman. “We anticipate similarly strong demand from the UK market.”
Pogoplug’s proprietary hybrid cloud technologies meld offsite archival storage with a Pogoplug-powered cloud accelerator in the home or office. The combination makes enterprise-grade cloud backup fast, easy and affordable for consumers and small businesses, with the added benefits of instant access and sharing from anywhere on the Internet.
Pogoplug is led by seasoned entrepreneurs from the digital media and security space and is backed by Foundry Group, Softbank and Morgan Stanley. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, with a satellite office in Tel Aviv. For more information, please visit http://www.pogoplug.com.
