Apollo Personal Cloud Appliance Goes Mainstream with New Enhancements and Entry-Level Pricing at CES
Easy to Access On-the-Go or from the Desktop, Promise Technology’s Apollo Cloud Keeps Content Secure yet Sharable
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Jan 5, 2017) – Cloud storage is about to get more personal — and more affordable. This week at CES® 2017, Promise Technology Inc. is unveiling the newest version of its Apollo Cloud personal cloud storage appliance. An entry level price point of $199 makes the new 2TB Apollo Cloud available to a broader range of users, and premium new features rev up to speed and make it even easier to use. Building on the popularity of the original version, the 2TB Apollo Cloud comes complete with an app and is designed for on-the-go consumers who need simple, fast, secure access to their content. The latest version of Apollo Cloud will be shown for the first time on the show floor at CES 2017 (LVCC, South Hall 1, Booth #21446).
Storing and Sharing Made Easy
Apollo Cloud offers an affordable, simple way for families, small businesses and workgroups to safely store and share data from anywhere — from any device (OS X and Windows on computers and iOS or Android on smartphones and tablets). Easy enough for anyone to use — setup is a simple process that takes mere minutes — Apollo Cloud can be accessed by up to 10 users, each with full sharing and privacy control over their own digital files.
Protecting What’s Personal
Safety is having your private data off the web, secure on a personal cloud appliance that you own outright, with every transaction encrypted (using government-level AES-256 encryption) to safeguard your privacy.
With Apollo Cloud, friends and family don’t have to be shy about being social – they’re free to comment on and discuss shared content (videos, photos, etc.) within an entirely private environment.
Premium Features, Non-Premium Price
Continuing the Promise Technology tradition of being in lockstep with the latest from Apple, Apollo Cloud is the first storage appliance to offer optimised hardware encryption and SMB support for Apple’s latest MacOS Sierra and supports Time Machine backup for Mac.
Recently added features — including scheduled daily backup, direct USB upload/download, remote access, member quota management and advanced encryption — give Apollo Cloud users the ability to make their personal cloud uniquely their own. The new Apollo Cloud is enhanced with even more capabilities, including Apollo Cloud Mirroring for additional protection; a QuickView option that contributes to speed and uses less data by delivering either full-size or scaled down content depending on screen size or network speed; and an upgraded video/music player. Additionally, the newly-added ‘Apollo Anywhere’ feature includes SAMBA protocol over the internet — meaning that users are no longer limited to accessing local network folders.
What Sets Apollo Apart?
