Connected Data was able to gather a lot of focus and remained under the limelight soon after its release of the Transporter v2.0 earlier in May this year and now it is back with a bang as it plans to exploit opportunities in the area of cloud storage. With this mission, they are bringing in the Transporter Sync. The Dropbox-like functionality of this will remain similar to that of its predecessor which can be termed as the bigger version of this one. Because of this feature, users will no longer be bound and tied with the annoying subscription fees.
Obviously this one is simply not a mirror image of the predecessor and there are certain changes which must be highlighted at this stage to distinguish it. For instance, the Transporter v2.0 had an internal memory in the form of a 2.5-inch drive which resides inside but the Sync will permit users more flexibility, allowing them to use any external HDD which must not be larger than 4 TB and must connect with a USB.
The newer Transporter option has been quite popular and has been met with enthusiasm since it is based upon reasonable decision after analyzing carefully the customer feedback; customers wanted to pay less and not only wanted extended storage space but were also looking for ways to put their external HDDs to use with Transporter network. So Connected Data took these suggestions into consideration and for the external HDDs to be connected via USBs, the chipset had to be replaced with a new one.
One of the most attractive features of this is the fact that the storage unit has the ability to synchronize with multiple devices and in this way allows users to switch between working on computers, tablets and smartphones. This has been enabled with the aid of Transporter iOS and Android apps. In the newer Transporter, a lot of emphasis has been given to the security of data and it has been claimed that the files will be saved locally and will be safe and sound.
The new Transporter Sync will be available in the next few weeks and will be priced at $99 in USA and £89 in the UK.
