Transporter

No, this is not about a new sic-fi movie.  It is sci-fact (tech-fact).  I have played with several devices to have my own cloud storage system over the last few years.  I recently moved to another level with the Transporter Sync.  I bought two of these devices for $99 each.  I plugged them into the wall, plugged in an ethernet cable from my router at my home and my office and added two 4TB Seagate USB 3.0 Drives (Costco for $149 each) and for $500 I have my own cloud storage system with physical and geographic redundancy.  I did it on an experimental basis to see how it worked.  I like it enough that I will probably add a third device and put it in another state to give me a third backup server and better geographic redundancy.

I like the Transporter for a variety of reasons.  First and foremost, I like it because it works.  I also like it because it works well and because it is truly plug and play.  Set up could not be much easier.  I told you about the connection process.  The only other thing left to do to set it up is download the software and install it on your computer, then open it up and set up an account and claim your server to connect it to your account.  The software and the devices work hand in hand so that whatever you put on the hard drive connected to one Transporter gets transported to the hard drive connected to the other Transporter(s) in your system.

You can set up different types of folders for different purposes.  For example, one type of folder will store information only on the hard drives connected to the Transporters in your system.  Another type of folder will move it to the other hard drives connected to the Transporters in your system, but also to the Transporter folders on other devices linked to your account.  You can also set up some folders to share with others, if you wish.  All in all, it has proven a reliable and flexible system.
