Iomega Personal Cloud Features

Around the globe sync files directly between computers as though they were on a local network.
You can easily set up a shared workspace so that local and remote users can view and edit documents such as spreadsheets, presentations and word processing documents. This is especially useful for helping geographically dispersed workers to collaborate.
Iomega's Personal Cloud offers functionality that makes it easy for you to securely copy and transfer large or confidential files.
Allows you to choose who has access to what data by invitation only. You 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 you need to manage only user accounts. The maintenance of array and monitoring the health of your data storage is not required.
Archiving older files to a remote StorCenter frees up space on your primary StorCenter device for day-to-day business needs. This saves your money as the need for increasing the capacity of primary storage is not required.
It is always beneficial to keep a second copy of your data in an offsite location to ensure availability in the event of an unforeseen disaster. Remote backups can run in the background after business hours to eliminate network bottlenecks.
