Imagine having the convenience of a flash drive that accesses all or a few of your files in the Cloud, in your pocket!
HSTi’s ‘Cloud Flash drive’ looks and feels like an ordinary USB flash drive, plugs-in and works the same way, but has one fundamental difference. The files appearing on it are virtual and are actually stored in cyberspace on the cloud.
How does it work?
This ‘flash drive’ wirelessly connects to your cloud storage drive and facilitates accessing the files directly, without having to first download them internaly. Our revolutionary technology emulates a local USB drive (ie, pretends to be) by wirelessly streaming files and folders to our USB dongle, and USB enabled TVs or stereos cannot identify any difference. It’s portable, take it anywhere!
As can be seen in the video clip, the “Cloud Thumbdrive” is portable; it is actually just a USB dongle with a little bit of magic inside. A user can take the stick to a friend’s house and stream his preferred music stored in the cloud on the host’s system, or use it in any car for streaming the cloud-based music on the car stereos.
A USB dongle that accesses the cloud?
With our revolutionary “Cloud Thumbdrive”, users will be able to access online files on devices WITHOUT any special apps, and will be able to access files even on devices that were never meant to do so to begin with, such as the ubiquitous USB picture frames. Imagine the possibility of streaming all of your online photos wirelessly to your photo frame on your desk, or streaming your online music to your car stereo through a USB port!
Useful Business tool
The Cloud Thumbdrive will enable businesses to allow employees to carry this small device fitting into their pockets instead of cumbersome technologies like VPN tunnels, firewall access protocols etc. Being fully secure and functionally adaptable anywhere without any special software, it is the ideal tool for road warriors. Use the computer on an internet café, at work, at a friend’s place, in a different continent, without copying or leaving any files behind. Lost or stolen access to the files can be suspended in seconds, safeguarding even the most sensitive information; this makes it the ideal tool for doctors, lawyers and other professionals with sensitive information.
Corporations can utilize their existing infrastructure to offer this service to their employees. HSTi can customize a solution for your particular needs and allow your road warriors the same benefits and security.
Schools will never be the same
Teachers will be able to distribute material that is dynamically updated all the time without the need of expensive technologies. Homework, assignments, material can be distributed to all or just one student effortless, securely, instantly.
Access your data from anywhere!
Tether the adapter with your smartphone (iphone, ipad & android) and access all your files from any location. Even from half way across the world.
You are now free to access all your files, securely from any computer, without having to worry about viruses or who will have access to the data after you.
Because you have access to all your files it does’t mean you need huge amounts of bandwidth too. The cloud adapter reads only the headers of the file and presents a virtual file to the device without downloading the whole file, only a small amount of bandwidth is required. Once the file is selected for viewing or editing it is at that point that the whole file is streamed and read from the cloud.
