New cloud services are introduced on daily basis, but cloud devices are not commonly launched on regular basis. I have stumbled on a project on Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform, that will definitely help you to simplify your storage devices connectivity: CloudFTP.
What is CloudFTP?
CloudFTP is a pocket size adapter that can turn any USB storage devices into a wireless file server, allowing you to share files with any WiFi-enabled devices (iPad, Blackberry, etc.) CloudFTP also automatically connects to cloud storage services, such as Dropbox and iCloud, to synchronize and backup your USB data.
CloudFTP is a brainchild of Sanho Corporation, a company specializes in Apple accessories.
CloudFTP gives a real solution to a common problem: Connectivity issues between USB mass storage devices. As we all know, USB hard drives, flash drives, card readers, etc. are some of the most commonly used digital storage media. However, such wide array of products presents us with an issue: It’s almost impossible to connect a USB storage device to, say, an iPad or your favorite cloud storage service, without much hassle (you typically need a computer to help you transfer data.)
To give you a better idea on how CloudFTP works, check out this CloudFTP video on Kickstarter:
Pretty cool, and it does offer real solution to enhance people’s digital life in the cloud.
Interested in help turning the CloudFTP project into reality?
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform – so you can take part to fund the launch of the CloudFTP project – and get some nice perks in return. The fund required to launch the project is $100,000, and I have no doubt this cloud adapter will be launched in timely manner.
