CodeLathe announces Tonido on Freecom Silverstore 2-Drive NAS product

We are happy to announce that Tonido will now be available on Freecom’s Silverstore 2-Drive NAS Product.


CodeLathe’s Press Release follows:

Dallas, Texas (September 27, 2011) — CodeLathe today announced that the Tonido Personal Cloud software and service is now available on Freecom’s Silverstore 2-Drive NAS. The Tonido Personal Cloud service connects users to their NAS storage remotely and allows them to freely access and share their files anywhere in the world. Tonido Personal cloud will offer remote access via the web browser and mobile clients including iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 platforms.

Freecom, a Mitsubishi Kagaku Media company, headquartered in Netherlands launched the ‘Silverstore 2-Drive NAS’ which is a simple to use network storage center featuring two separate, removable hard drives. The multi-configuration dual-drive design NAS product reliably stores up to 6TB of data from an entire home network in one central location and features the latest Gigabit and USB 3.0 host interface standard.

“Keeping true to our mission — to empower customers in an increasingly connected world, Tonido offers universal access to users’ favorite applications, files, music, photos, and media from anywhere without sacrificing privacy and ownership of their data,” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO, CodeLathe. “And today, we are pleased to offer the Tonido software running on this powerful and flexible NAS product from Freecom.”

Tonido Personal Cloud is a compelling solution for consumers and small-business in an era when people are more mobile and connected than ever before. The popular Tonido service which has been available before as a standalone software package on the desktop and on CodeLathe’s own products now expands to other products bringing the same ease of use, functionality and availability.

Freecom’s Press Release follows:



London, 27/09/11 | Freecom, a Mitsubishi Kagaku Media company, today launched the ‘SilverStore 2-Drive NAS’, a simple to use network storage center featuring two separate, removable hard drives encased in a sleek silver-colored enclosure. The multi-configuration dual-drive design reliably stores up to 6TB of data from an entire home network in one central location and features the latest Gigabit and USB 3.0 host interface standard. The NAS drive makes it easy for multiple users to download large files, store and access documents, and share everything from videos and music to photos and presentations.

Many people rely on hard drives to store all kinds of information, but if their drive crashes these important files can be lost forever. With the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS, users can protect their data from this danger by programming it so that one drive automatically makes an exact copy of the other, giving them peace of mind that comes from knowing everything is safely backed up.

The SilverStore 2-Drive NAS can also be configured so that the two drives can be used as one single volume to maximize the amount of storage space on the network. Alternatively, the drives can be used for separate purposes – for example, they could be assigned to different family members so that data is kept segregated, or they could simply be used to store different types of files. Users can also organize and control access to their data by assigning individual usernames and passwords to ensure that their individual content remains secure at all times.

Furthermore, a secure private home cloud option enables users to access information remotely through their smartphones or tablets, even while they are out of the house. This functionality without additional end-user fees (i.e. subscriptions) is enabled by the free embedded Tonido Software on the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS “The growing popularity of smartphones and tablets is changing the way we access data,” said Dennis Slagers, technical product manager HDD at Freecom. “For many people, who own mobile devices, it’s not enough to be able to access files from networked computers – they also want to share information with friends and family when they’re on the move. With the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS, we have made it as easy as possible for people to share files wherever they are by incorporating a private home cloud option into the functionality of the drive. Flexibility is a key driving factor behind the design of the drive. That’s why we’ve enabled users to set up a system that works best for them – whether it’s to safely backup important files or maximize the amount of storage capacity they have for photos, videos and music.”

The SilverStore 2-Drive NAS connects directly to a network router or switch, and simple installation software makes it easy for any user to set up in minutes. The product is DLNA-compliant to allow for seamless video and audio streaming to playback devices such as the Xbox 360, PS3 and networked media players. Apple computers are supported by “Transmission backup” and an included iTunes server. It also comes complete with a built-in FTP server and BitTorrent client so that users can download large multimedia files directly to the drives quickly and easily – even while their computer switched off.

While this NAS drive features USB 3.0 technology on the front, which is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0, there is a second USB 2.0 port conveniently positioned at the back for extra storage devices. The high-performance unit contains a 1 GHz Marvell 6283 processor that runs with low power consumption.

Additional features of the drive include:

· Latest Gigabit LAN, RAID and iSCSI technology

· One or two hard disk drives (HDD) in RAID0, RAID1, Single DISK, JBOD

· Windows File Sharing (CIFS/Samba), Linux File Sharing (NFS) and Apple File Sharing (AFP & Time Machine) compatible
