CloudFTP Lifts Up USB-bound Data to Your Own Personal Cloud

by Lambert Varias

There are already a handful of solutions for streaming data to and from your portable device. You can use Dropbox or apps like Air Video or GoodReader to stream or transfer data. There are also products like Seagate’s GoFlex Satellite, a hard drive with wireless streaming capabilities. But I think the CloudFTP sounds better than any of these solutions.

CloudFTP is a USB adapter that has two functions: it allows you to wirelessly access data from a USB storage device, and it can also back up the data from a USB storage device to a cloud service. CloudFTP is very portable – it’s about as big as a deck of cards, weighs only 3.8oz, and has an internal battery that can power external hard drives for up to 5 hours.

It goes without saying that the CloudFTP needs access to a wireless network so it can back up your data, but you don’t need an Internet connection to use it to stream media or use it as an FTP server. Here’s Chin with more on the device:

Ride a Kintoun Cloud to Kickstarter and pay $69 (USD) to be one of the first to get a CloudFTP device; Chin says it will retail for $100, so that’s a considerable amount of savings right there. My only complaint, if I could even call it that, is that Chin – who already owns a successful tech company – is likely not as fiscally challenged as many of the other people who use Kickstarter to raise funds. Then again, it’s not like he’s forcing people to pledge for his device.

    This device looks very interesting! It has much of the same functionality as other plug storage devices, but brings a little more to the table. Hopefully it’ll have a successful launch next year…
