Pogoplug today launched a revamped version of their personal cloud hardware, the Series 4, which the company has positioned as an extension to the recently unveiled Pogoplug Cloud service. Continuing in the “big new direction” they’ve embarked on over the past few weeks, Pogoplug has positioned Series 4 as a faster, more flexible extension of the cloud service.
The service revolves around storing media and other files in a personal cloud accessible via Web-based and desktop/mobile client software. Free Pogoplug Cloud accounts offer 5GB of storage, expandable via forthcoming monthly subscription plans or your own hard drive connected to the Net via Pogoplug hardware – like the new Series 4.
But don’t take my word for it – check out the nifty infographic Pogoplug designed to explain what the heck it is they do.
Available now for $99.99, Series 4 offers four different hard drive connection ports including support for universal storage module (USM) devices:
- USB 3.0 x 2
- SD x 1
- USB 2.0 x 1
- 2.5” SATA/USM/Seagate GoFlex ultra-portable drives x1
