Pogoplug has launched a new service called Pogoplug Team it’s designed for businesses, which allows them to transform their own servers in Cloud storage that can be accessed by its employees.
The new Pogoplug Team service allows businesses that might prefer to use their own servers rather than outside less secure servers to store data on. To start using the server a business simply needs to install the Pogoplug Team software on to their server and pay a $15 per user per year for access.
Features on the new Pogoplug Team service include streaming, remote data access and file sharing across your team. Pogoplug also provides mobile apps as part of the offering allowing business users to backup their mobile devices and data directly to the Pogoplug cloud. Dan Putterman, CEO of Pogoplug explains:
“Our sweet spot is [businesses with] 10 to 50 people. You’re a small business and want to be able to use existing server capacity to create [a] cloud,” -. “Today, you can buy a 3TB hard drive for $150. So we’re talking about full access and file sharing to 3TB of storage for $150,”
“We actually run a managed service. You go [to] one of our interfaces — whether the Web or mobile applications — and that gets authenticated through our service which forms a tunnel back into your office,”
The Pogoplug Team software supports Windows XP/7, Windows Server 2008, Mac OS X, and Mac OS X Server 10.6.6 and above.
