Homecloud is designed to create a personal computing 'cloud' within a home or a small-business environment. The Homecloud Digital Home Manager (DHM) is a wireless router, a network hub, and an application server, all rolled into one. The DHM comes with an initial set of applications which enable automated data backup and sharing of content across devices using the Windows, Mac OS and Apple iOS operating systems, the company said.
"We are introducing a new kind of network product to the market," said Rick Gilbert, Chairman and CEO of Westell Technologies. "Homecloud effectively networks multiple devices using a variety of operating systems, and significantly simplifies the management and sharing of data and media content. Basically, Homecloud allows the user to enjoy the benefits of backup and sharing without the privacy and security concerns or the bandwidth demands that are inherent in cloud-based solutions."
The Homecloud DHM hardware uses a dual processor design with one processor dedicated to the router and the second processor dedicated to running applications. The initial release of Homecloud includes the following built-in applications that allow users to quickly protect, synchronize and share their data, backup and share, data protection, data synchronization, media sharing, network attached storage, and disk viewer.http://www.datamonitor.comRepublication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means,is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
