Web2Storage Corp. Announces General Availability of Web2Drive providing “Time Capsule” capability for Vista Users


Seattle, WA - May 20, 2008- Web2Storage Corp., a software development and marketing company focused on making network storage as simple as directly attached disk drives, today announced general availability of its Web2Drive software for storage devices, enabling Windows Vista users secure, remote, and seemingly local access to their data at home or from anywhere with Internet access.

Web2Drive software resides on a disk drive partition, where it utilizes Microsoft Vista Rally technology and advanced chip controllers to give users a one-click install of a network storage device.

A user simply purchases a Web2Drive-enabled device from a retailer, plugs it into their router or wireless router via an Ethernet cable, and with one click the device appears as a local drive letter on their computer, just as a USB device would. The user then has secure remote access to their data from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection, without carrying the storage device with them. When combined with backup application software, Web2Drive provides an automated local backup capability rivaling the Apple “Time Capsule”, plus secure remote access.

Web2Drive is versatile and has demonstrated its operability on a number of consumer and Micro-Business-level storage devices supported by semiconductor controllers from companies such as Freescale, Intel, and Marvell. Data transfer rates of 50-80 megabytes per second (sufficient for multiple HDTV streams) have been demonstrated and can be increased depending on the chosen processor.

Web2Storage will showcase the first public demonstration of Web2Drive at the Windows Rally Summit at the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA, on June 4th and 5th. The event will also mark the debut of Web2Server, which leverages the advanced features of Web 2.0 services to enable small businesses without IT resources, budgets, or expertise to perform a 1-click installation of a Data Server System and automated email, backup, and encryption applications. Like Web2Drive, Web2Server will be demonstrated on multiple storage and processor platforms.

Products utilizing the Web2Drive technology are slated to be available at your favorite retailer for the holiday buying season. Web2Drive can also be purchased from the Web2Storage website.

About Web2Storage
Web2Storage has emerged as a developer of user experience-oriented storage software products. This development is driven by a belief that traditional NAS devices need not be so complex to install and access, and that technology is available to give iSCSI and NAS devices a 1-click install for the mobile/home user and the micro-business. Its founders Scott Smyth and Ron Brown are veterans of several network attached storage companies that have developed popular NAS and iSCSI products for the SMB market.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
