Got the CLOUD FEAR? Connected Data has a black 'n' blue cone to sell you

Connected Data has introduced the second version of its private cloud storage device, Transporter 2, and is hoping to cash in on those users who have been put off by public cloud outages.

This is a file sync 'n' share product with a difference; instead of files being copied from your computer to a public cloud service (Box, Dropbox, etc) or to an enterprise's data centre in a private cloud service (EMC Syncplicity), the Transporter is an on-premise, internet-connected 2TB storage device, peer-to-peer connected to other Transporters, sharing and syncing files between them. There's no exposure to the public cloud and it can be used by consumers and business users without needing a central data centre.
