ADATA to enter the personal cloud market; shows low drive count NAS at Computex Taipei 2013

ADATA debuts NAS devices at Computex Taipei 2013

Computex Taipei 2013 - We didn't get a lot of time to talk with ADATA today, so more details will follow shortly. At the booth we found several interesting products though. First up are two personal cloud products that use NAS technology to give users access to their data anywhere in the world through other devices. You can use the Internet--err 'the cloud'--to access your files. I use this technology everyday on my notebook, smartphone, and other people's hardware to get to my files. Since I'm literally on the other side of the globe right now, it's an important detail to toss in.


We're not going to try to BS you, this is obviously a rebranded unit from ASUSTOR. ADATA's global network of distribution should help products like this gain traction. I've said for years the most important tech in my home and office is my NAS server and that digital home needs one as the foundation for ever device to connect to. With the new cloud features, your data is no longer tied to a physical device on your person as you can access it from anywhere.


The new dual-bay unit from ADATA is called Premier Pro NP210. It has a small footprint but packs big features, several more than listed on ADATA's short list shown at the show.


Even smaller is the new Premier NP100, a single drive solution optimized for low power consumption.


No word on pricing, but we didn't get a lot of time to speak with ADATA today due to other meetings. We'll drop in tomorrow and get all of the details and report back if we can find pricing and availability details.
