LenovoEMC Personal Cloud:

LenovoEMC Personal CloudThe LenovoEMC™ is the ultimate solution for protecting your data and having access to it from anywhere in the world, as it simply connects the entire contents of your home network over the Internet as if you were sitting at home. Useful for work and leisure, it gives you the ability to access files and information remotely over the Internet.

LenovoEMC Personal Cloud is the revolutionary technology that allows you to protect and share your data. LenovoEMC Personal Cloud is a patent-pending, web-based computing architecture that connects your Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center to other individuals and/or devices via the Internet. Unlike public and private cloud applications, Lenovo's Personal Cloud technology is completely self-owned - so the content and accessibility is always under your control.

  • Synchronization: Users around the globe can sync files directly between computers as though they were on a local network.
  • Collaboration: Easily set up a shared workspace so that local and remote users can view and edit documents (spreadsheets, presentations, and word processing documents, for example) -especially useful for helping geographically dispersed workers collaborate.
  • Sharing: Sending large files can quickly choke your company's e-mail system. And e-mailing sensitive files can raise security concerns. LenovoEMC Personal Cloud offers functionality that makes it easy to securely copy and transfer large or confidential files.
  • Security: LenovoEMC Personal Cloud allows you to choose who has access to what data by invitation only. And, users can choose from three levels of security when sending data over a public network.
  • Backup: Keeping a second copy of your most valuable data (family pictures, insurance and financial data, for example) in an offsite location ensures it is safe in the event of an unforeseen disaster. Using your LenovoEMC EZ Media & Backup Center and another LenovoEMC Personal Cloud device, you can set up scheduled copy jobs to duplicate data in another site. Jobs run in the background and can be scheduled after hours so your data is being protected while you sleep.
