Network storage devices, such as the ZyXEL Media Server, are a great solution for consumers who have large media libraries, beyond the storage capacity of most computers. The personal cloud is an ideal solution for direct anytime access to large media libraries. In contrast, typical public cloud solutions have 5GB storage limits, which is a fraction of most media libraries. And because they require a round trip to the cloud server to upload and download files, cloud storage solutions cannot take advantage of fast local connections when the devices are on the same network.
With Polkast, the ZyXEL Media Server will become the center of the user's personal cloud, for secure anytime access to files from any authorized device. Users will easily search files, browse photos and play music stored on the Media Server. Users can also share files that reside on their Media Server seamlessly and securely, even while away from their home. The content stays within the user's control in their own home network environment, unlike third party cloud storage solutions.
