Developers of the Drobo storage array and BlueArc Silicon Server, Connected Data have added version control into its award-winning small business Transporter Desktop 2.7 private cloud storage product. The new feature enables users to restore older versions of files that have been acci2015dentally overwritten and also recover files and folders that have been acci2015dentally deleted.
In addition to being able to restore previous versions of files and undelete files and folders, users can also see a full audit trail of changes, including who took those actions and when.
Described as the “world’s first peer-to-peer private storage device,” Transporter is a completely private alternative to public cloud offerings and acts as a small cloud storage device – it stores up to 2TB per device - and is aimed at branch offices and smaller businesses and competes with services like Dropbox. Unlike competing cloud storage solutions that require premium services to store more than a few versions, Transporter Versions will preserve an unlimited amount of versions as long as there is space available on the device. If the Transporter runs low on capacity, only the oldest versions will be removed as needed to make space for new files. To further preserve valuable space on limited capacity laptops and tablets, previous versions are only stored on Transporters.
Transporter can be used as a standalone private cloud or automatically synced with other Transporters allowing professionals and businesses to easily and inexpensively protect valuable files in multiple locations while also creating a private network of shared files with co-workers, colleagues, friends and family members.
“We have made tremendous progress with Transporter since it launched in early 2013 and continue to add features and functions that are valuable to our tens of thousands of customers,” said Jim Sherhart, Vice President of Marketing, at Connected Data. “The addition of Transporter Versions is significant in that it provides our users critical peace-of-mind knowing their data is now protected from acci2015dental modification or deletion without having to sacrifice the complete privacy and control that only Transporter can provide.”
