Hitachi Touro Pro – Hard Drives with Cloud Storage
Hitachi has added to its external storage and backup solutions with the new Hitachi Touro Pro desktop and mobile external hard drives. These are loaded with two levels of protection – local backup and cloud storage.
The 1-2 of online storage and local personal storage means that you get the benefits of personal cloud space so you can get the stuff you want access to, from anywhere â€“ online and from your tablet, Smartphone, laptop or direct from an external drive.
You can access and share files from any web browser, tablet or Smartphone â€“ including your iPhone and iPad using Hitachi’s apps.
When using the cloud service, all content is stored in its natural format (no proprietary formatting), so files are easy to view, download and share from any web browser, anywhere. You can even share your online content with others by sending a web link.
Every Touro Pro owner is handed 3GB of online storage for free – that can be boosted when you want, for example: upgrade to a quarter of a terabyte (250GB) for $49 per year and that includes multiple computer protection.Â Upgrade to a paid account and receive the Apple iPhone or iPad apps for free.
The Hitachi Touro Pro local backup software means that with a few clicks the driveâ€™s default setting will backup photos, music, videos, and documents from your computer directly to the drive. Once installed, backups run automatically every 30 minutes. And, itâ€™s flexible enough to schedule custom backups on a time or day thatâ€™s convenient for you.
â€œUnbound by convention, Hitachi GST was the first to blend personal storage with cloud backup. Weâ€™re liberating our customers from the limitations of todayâ€™s technology and giving them free reign about where they store and how they access their digital content,â€ said Mike Williams, general manager of Hitachi GST Branded Business Group. â€œOur new intelligent storage products and services continue to redefine how we connect to our content -, while providing data protection, simplicity and ease of use for just about anyone.â€
The HitachiÂ Touro Pro drives come in business-like piano black with the Touro Mobile Pro and Touro Mobile being available right now with the Hitachi Touro Desk Pro and Touro Desk versions shipping in June.
