iOS devices owners looking for a little extra private storage space, might be interested in a new device unveiled at CES 2013 this week by Kanex called the meDrive.
The Kanex meDrive has been created to provide a secure private cloud for iOS devices, and allows you to expand your iOS devices storage externally and create your own local cloud using external USB storage.
Once connected to the Kanex meDrive the USb storage can then be used to share or easily access extra media files and data. meDrive is connected to a local network, and documents can be accessed using the Kanex meDrive iOS app. Kelvin Yan, Kanex president explains:
“What makes the meDrive file server unique is that it has built-in WebDAV and Bonjour support which enables iOS devices to easily connect to the drive and read/write, access and share Apple iWork files such as Keynote, Pages, and Numbers,”-“meDrive basically becomes your WebDAV server for your iPad. And because it’s connected to a network, any other devices can connect, share and access files on the drive including OS X and Windows.”
“The Kanex meDrive is an elegant alternative to Dropbox, Edmodo, Evernote and other cloud based storage solutions,” said Robert Craven, director of technology and media services, Fullerton School District. “Easy enough for a classroom teacher to set up, the meDrive provides our teachers a rapid method to share files with students on iOS devices or computers, as well as to collect work back from students in a flash. meDrive is the new must have device in our mobile classrooms.”
The Kanex meDrive is now available to be used with iOS devices for $99
