Two new ReadyNAS Remote mobile apps seamlessly extend stored digital content to Apple iOS and Android mobile devices. This “private cloud” enables easy connections from mobile platforms to personal music, movies, photos and files stored at home. ReadyNAS users may download, upload, view and edit their content securely from across town or across the globe.
Glenn Palome, a ReadyNAS owner in Holiday, Fla., uses the new Android mobile app to access files stored on his ReadyNAS system from his Droid phone and Xoom tablet. “It’s as easy as opening the app and signing into ReadyNAS Remote,” says Palome. “I store photos, documents and videos on my ReadyNAS and they all download to my mobile devices quickly and easily.”
“Consumer NAS with remote mobile client access will continue to be an important on-premise alternative to cloud services, catering to consumers who don’t trust cloud services because of security issues or don’t want to add another layer of management complexity,” said Pushan Rinnen, Research Director in the Data Systems Group at Gartner, Inc.
