Wary of the cloud because you don’t trust a third party with your precious data? Pogoplug has you covered, providing tools that allow you to create your own private cloud using an old computer or dedicated Pogoplug devices. Now, the company offers similar functionality for small businesses (or small teams or departments within larger organizations) with Pogoplug Team. Pogoplug Team is software that you can install on any PC that allows users to remotely access files stored on that machine and also back up and share files to it via any other computer, smartphone, tablet, or Web browser.

You've certainly heard of Drobo, the company formerly known as Data Robotics. Their Drobo line of intelligent storage boxes have helped redefine local backup, and now they're taking one step closer to the inevitable: cloud backup. The company has announced a new partnership that brings Pogoplug Cloud to Drobo customers, for remote file access, cloud storage and media streaming from any device. It's a deal that'll bring a comprehensive personal cloud solution for anytime, anywhere access to files. Drobo customers will have access to free cloud storage, remote file access and digital media streaming... Read more...
If you've paid any close attention to Cloud Engines over the past few years, you'll probably think "Pogoplug" relates directly to hardware. But actually, there's another side to that story. The company has just released a new build of the software-only Pogoplug, which turns any PC or Mac into a "Personal Cloud," no additional hardware required. This new version allows users to stream their entire photo, music, and video libraries and makes that content accessible anywhere in the world. Files stored across multiple computers and hard drives can be connected to a single account to provide users one... Read more...
Beginning in 2009, a number of companies began building small "plug" computers, some of which plugged directly into an AC adapter (hence the name). One such manufacturer is Cloud Engines, which sells a series of plug computers aimed at making files available online without having to leave a PC running. A few months ago, Cloud Engines launched the Pogoplug Video. Unlike previous systems, which were aimed at sharing photos and music, the Pogoplug Video was capable of streaming 1080p video content to multiple devices. One of the features of the Pogoplug Video was its ability to stream the AVCHD format... Read more...
The Pogoplug has a new version. Pogoplug made its name a few years back by creating a product that would allow standard USB hard drives to be converted into NAS drives. The idea is simple: the Pogoplug has a number of USB ports, and when those are filled with USB hard drives, they're put online and able to be accessed remotely. The Pogoplug Pro is the newest in the family. It has a similar design, but this edition is black and clear. It has four USB 2.0 ports on the rear, enabling up to four USB hard drives to be placed online. The main difference here is that this unit has integrated Wi-Fi, whereas... Read more...
Pogoplug started somewhat of a revolution when they figured out that a simple box could be used to put standard USB external hard drives onto the Internet, enabling remote access. They basically figured out how to market and sell the process of turning standard HDDs into NAS devices, and they've been progressing ever since. Now, with the consumer market behind them, it's the business market that's next on their radar. The company's newest product is the Pogoplug Biz, which looks almost exactly like the second-generation Pogoplug that was introduced last year. The colors are slightly different,... Read more...
How often have you wished that just about every PC peripheral you have could be placed on a network in order to be accessed from anywhere? Even if you've never considered it until now, doesn't it sounds like a particularly great idea? Addonics, a company known for pushing out unusual adapters that make lives all the better, has just issued a device that does just that: the NAU. Short for Network Attached USB Adapter, this device looks (and works) a bit like the PogoPlug. But the main draw here is its ability to add "any USB device onto a network." Any being the key word. Once the USB device is... Read more...
Sharkoon is best known for its HDD Docks, which enable internal 3.5" HDDs to be quickly accessed outside of a PC. The company's latest product, however, has little to do with connecting hard drives to actual rigs via the traditional methods and lots more to do with making your existing drives accessible over the Internet.The Sharkoon USB LANPort is essentially another form of the Pogoplug that the world has grown to know and love. Basically, it's a USB network adapter that connects a USB port with a LAN. In short, it connects any USB flash drive or USB hard drive with the 'Net, making any USB storage... Read more...
Cloud Engines has made a good name for itself with its original Pogoplug, a device that essentially turned any USB external hard drive into a NAS drive. The original Pogoplug had a single USB port, enabling one HDD to be accessed over the Internet. The company has just launched its second generation device, and this one is far more functional. The new Pogoplug hardware is really stylish, boasting a clear case with colorful accents. The single device supports up to 4 HDDs, enabling a total of four USB hard drives to instantly become Web-accessible. It also provides a drag-and-drop interface to create... Read more...
Network-attached storage (NAS) devices come in all shapes and sizes; some even come without hard drives--with the intention that the users will add the drives themselves. There is even a relatively new category of NAS devices that don't have any internal drives at all, and instead use USB-attached drives as their storage source. These NAS devices are typically inexpensive and super-easy to setup and use. We've even looked at a couple of them: the Addonics NAS Adapter ($49) and CloudEngines' Pogoplug ($99). Now a big name in the storage business, Seagate, has jumped onto this bandwagon and released... Read more...

Seagate has licensed CloudEngines' easy-to-use Pogoplug network-attached storage (NAS) technology, and has integrated it into the new FreeAgent DockStar network adapter. With a FreeAgent DockStar, you can easily turn any Seagate FreeAgent Go portable hard drive (not included) into a network-attached storage device.The primary focus of the Pogoplug technology is to turn any USB-based storage device into an easy to setup and use NAS device, with simple remote access for file sharing. We reviewed the original Pogoplug device back in July--for in-depth details into the technology and how it works,... Read more...
For many, just the thought of setting up and using a network attached storage (NAS) device makes their eyes cross and their pulses increase. While even the technophobic recognize the benefits of having a network-based repository of files for sharing and backup, the concept can still seem daunting to some. The reality is that NAS devices have become surprisingly easy to set up and use, but most still require at least a modicum of networking knowhow. In a bid to allay the fears of even the greenest of computer users, however, CloudEngine's Pogoplug makes setting up and using a NAS device as easy... Read more...
