Overwhelming customer demand drives international expansion

SAN FRANCISCO – September 4, 2014 – Connected Data today announces that its award-winning Transporter private cloud storage products are now available in Australia from select retail outlets including Kayell, MacFixIt and Nexus. Businesses and professionals in Australia can now benefit from a cost-effective and completely private file sync and share platform that is already enjoyed by tens of thousands of users across North America and Europe.

Transporter sets the standard as a completely private alternative to public cloud offerings. All data is stored only on Transporters and authorized devices to ensure privacy, but also provides users with global access and unlimited sharing. Unlike cloud services, the Transporter is a one-time purchase with no monthly charge and starts at just $159 (AUD).

“There simply is nothing like Transporter available in Australia,” said Josh Harvey, Channel Manager for Kayell. “We’re excited to introduce Transporter to our customers who want a more private and less costly alternative to cloud storage services.”

Transporter can be used as a standalone private cloud or shared with other Transporter devices. This unique ability of Transporter devices to communicate and share with each other regardless of location enables consumers and businesses to easily create a network of shared files with co-workers, colleagues, friends and family members.

“In just over a year since its release, Transporter has already passed the milestone of 15 Petabytes of storage deployed,” said Philippe Cazaubon, Senior Director of APAC Sales for Connected Data.
“Our move into Australia reflects that growth and the increasing demand among businesses and consumers for complete control over where their files are stored and who can have access to them.”
