Project details

There are dozens of hardware products related to NAS and simple storage. However they face 2 main problems with most setups: 1. usability is a key issue with these devices (most user are now used to simple cell phone like interfaces) 2. The file-system-format wars between macs and PC’s

There have been good attempts by Data Robotics and Server Elements… to bridge these gaps independently.

The need: we need a hardware and software company that is willing to bring both of the benefits provided from these already existing products. Usability is key and the functionality of cross platform usage is a must.
