December 12, 2016 (Newswire.com) –
Canadian Startup Hexastor Systems Inc has announced that it will be launching a state of the art personal cloud device in Feb 2017.
The device connects to the Internet via any wireless network using an in-built wireless-n network controller and accepts most USB thumb drives or hard drives. It allows users to access their storage securely for backup or as a network attached storage device.
“Hexastor gives users the ability to store their data at home without giving up their data and buying subscription to access data.” says Kunal Thaggarse, founder of Hexastor Systems Inc.
“That was just one of our objectives though”, he adds, “We had other objectives in mind when we started working on this device. We didn’t launch this to compete with other large competitors who offer devices that allow users to host their data at home. We launched this device because people wanted something simple, portable, versatile and reusable. It’s truly an extensible device. We can build any applications consumers want, containerize it and enhance the capabilities of what just looks like a personal cloud storage device. We added a video chat feature recently that allows a host to have a secure video chat with upto 3 users in a chat room”
Features of Hexastor:
Portability: Powered by a quad-core processor, 1 gigabyte of RAM, integrated power supply module and 8 gigabytes of cache for applications housed in an enclosure that is durable yet beautiful. With ample compute capacity, users can run multiple applications as isolated containers. Hexastor is truly portable –no power and ethernet cables are required to use the device.
Security: Direct file access allows users to access files directly without the files being relayed through a server. In order to do that, Hexastor creates a secure tunnel from the device to the user’s personal computer, tablet or mobile phone. Multiple applications run as containers and this isolation ensures that applications don’t interfere with one another. Hexastor uses AES-256 encryption for data in transit with with the ability to encrypt hard-drives using the same encryption strength, if enabled by the user.
Extensibility: Allows developers to create and add small applications to do a variety of tasks.
The system is powered by a quad core processor and comes with 1GB of RAM and a wireless-n network card and 2 USB 3.0 ports.
The current device will be made available with a quad core processor, wireless-n, dual USB 3.0 ports and 1 GB of RAM for $139 (USD)
