Data Robotics is hardly a startup any more. At this point, they're a well-known name in the storage business, and they're still just about the only company out there with automated backup solutions like the Drobo. It's more like a storage robot than a dumb RAID box, and while the company has focused mostly on consumers thus far, they're now... Read more...

When you think of NAS drives, you probably think of big, rectangular boxes that aren't much to look at. There's probably 2 or 4 bays in there for hard drives, a power port and an Ethernet jack. They're all pretty simple, and they're all pretty much the same. But this NAS drive is different. Majorly different... 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.

It's marketed at at-home, casual users who simply need a basic NAS solution... 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.

Say what you will about Apple (and yes, there's a lot to be said), but the company has proven fairly reliable when it comes to repairing or replacing defective gear over the years.
