Iomega Personal Cloud

Iomega Personal Cloud is the revolutionary technology that allows you to protect and share your data. Iomega Personal Cloud is a patent-pending, web-based computing architecture that connects your Iomega StorCenter network storage devices to other individuals and/or devices via the Internet. Unlike public and private cloud applications, Iomega's Personal Cloud technology is completely self-owned -- so the content and accessibility is always under your control.
Synchronization: Users around the globe can sync files directly between computers as though they were on a local network.
Collaboration: Easily set up a shared workspace so that local and remote users can view and edit documents (spreadsheets, presentations, and word processing documents, for example) -- especially useful for helping geographically dispersed workers collaborate.
Sharing: Sending large files can quickly choke your company's email system. And e-mailing sensitive files can raise security concerns. Iomega Personal Cloud offers functionality that makes it easy to securely copy and transfer large or confidential files.
Security: Iomega Personal Cloud allows you to choose who has access to what data by invitation only. And, users can choose from three levels of security when sending data over a public network. At many smaller companies, locally stored files are at risk from theft, fire, software problems, and hardware failure. Cloud storage offers built in redundancy at every level: hard drive, server, and datacenter.
Low Maintenance: Once the system is set up there is almost no maintenance. You still have to manage user accounts, but jobs like array maintenance and monitoring the health of your data storage simply go away.
Archiving: Archiving older files to a remote StorCenter frees up space on your primary StorCenter device for day-to-day business needs. Less capacity required for primary storage saves you money.
Backup: Keeping a redundant copy of your data in an offsite location ensures availability in the event of an unforeseen disaster. Remote backups can run in the background after business hours to eliminate network bottlenecks.

Added Guarantee

During the warranty period, Iomega provides with this device a dedicated customer support phone line for handling all problems, troubleshooting, and return inquiries: 1-800-940-6354. Only units found to be defective can be returned, and Iomega will make every effort to resolve any problems over the phone first

        No disappointments with this NAS

        By nikluiz

        from Baltimore, MD

        Comments about Iomega 8TB StorCenter ix4-200d Network Storage, Cloud Edition Server:

        A terribly impressive NAS with arresting features the StorCenter ix4-200d has made life simple. The NAS came loaded with 8TB drive and I noticed that the drives can be mounted and dismounted from the sides instead of facing out of the front. Though there are many RAID level to be chosen, I selected RAID 5 as I was particular that the drives are hot swappable and RAID 5 facilitates this feature.

        There are no disappointments with the NAS if you only follow the rules. First I installed the software and then connected the NAS and ran the setup, it worked absolutely fine. This is how it was suggested and I followed the instructions and there were no hiccups in the setup process.

            Comments about Iomega 8TB StorCenter ix4-200d Network Storage, Cloud Edition Server:

            MY objective was to use for home business network for multiple computer and external access to common files along with FTP capability for larger file transfer from selected users that require controlled access. When recieved I was very impressed with the ease of set-up and the ability to control the different options (and there are plenty of them) It was a little slower than I expected. During the set-up there is an option for installing the latest updates to the firmware. after that update the display went bad. I removed the update with the factory reset to original configuration thinking the update may have caused a problem but it was the display that went bad. This was only several days out of the box. I ended up talking to several different IOmega reps on the phone and sent them emails with details of the problem with photos etc. each was going to get back but I had to get back with them. The actual memory storage function did not stop working only the unit display. The response time took longer than my alotted timeline so I ended up returning the product. (B&H was great with the return service) The other thing that was not clear before the purchase but was made clear after receiving it was data would/could transverse a foreign server and if that is a problem do not activate certian options. It could be a North American, south American or european server - IOMEGA has offices in those areas. I would probably still have it but the hardware issue was taking a little too long to resolve than I had available. I would recommend it conditionally - don't expect fast customer service from IOMEGA and be aware of the foreign server issue if your clients are sensitive to that.
