Automated features including camera upload and syncing files from any folder location greatly increase convenience and value verses fee-based cloud storage

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 13, 2014 – Connected Data, the creator of Transporter, the world’s first peer-to-peer private cloud storage platform, today releases new features that simplify file syncing and sharing for multi-computer and mobile device households and businesses, and position Transporter as a more cost-effective and private alternative to traditional cloud storage services such as Dropbox and Box.

The release of Camera Upload, Special Folders, Selective Sync and Library on Transporter Sync incorporates customer feedback and demonstrates the company’s commitment to create the best possible user experience and become the industry standard for private cloud storage.

“People have enough decisions to make without having to spend time sifting through photos, videos and documents to determine which ones they can afford to protect in the cloud,” said Jim Sherhart, Vice President of Marketing at Connected Data. “Transporter makes this simple with an inexpensive ‘buy and own’ platform that provides terabytes of capacity – more than enough space to protect all of their valuable files. This means they never have to worry about limited capacity or escalating monthly fees associated with traditional cloud storage.”

New Transporter features include:

“With the addition of these new features, Transporter is a no-compromise solution for consumers, business professionals or anyone looking for a simple, cost-effective and private alternative to fee-based cloud storage,” added Sherhart.

Special Folders, Selective Sync, and Transporter Library are now available for free to all Transporter customers and can be enabled by installing Version 2.5 of the Transporter Desktop application on any Mac or PC. Camera Upload will be available on iOS and Android devices in the coming weeks. More information and download links can be found here.
