CloudFTP, a Kickstarter Project by Sanho Corporation, Named as CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Honoree

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 08, 2011

Sanho Corporation right now announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Style and Engineering Awards Honoree for CloudFTP. Goods entered in this prestigious plan are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics items across 32 product categories.

CloudFTP is a pocket size adapter that can turn any USB storage device into a wireless file server, sharing files with WiFi-enabled devices (e.g. iPad, iPhone, personal computer etc.). It can also automatically connect to the Internet to backup and synchronize USB data with well-known on the web Cloud storage services like iCloud, Dropbox and box.net.

USB mass storage devices (USB challenging drives, flash drives, card readers, digital cameras etc.) are one of most commonly employed digital storage media. However it is virtually impossible to connect a USB storage device to recent inventions like the iPad, iPhone or the Cloud without having a lot hassle and going via a laptop or computer.

CloudFTP provides a single, inexpensive, plug-n-play resolution that bridges USB storage and the wireless Cloud. Once a USB storage device is plugged into CloudFTP, the information will instantly be accessible wirelessly to the Cloud, iPad, iPhone and other WiFi-enabled devices.

Powered by a low energy consumption, high efficiency ARM Cortex A8 microprocessor and a 2,600mAh lithium ion rechargeable battery, CloudFTP is capable of powering any USB mass storage compliant device, sharing the information more than a secure wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n WiFi network.

CloudFTP supports two different WiFi modes (ad-hoc and infrastructure). By default, CloudFTP creates its own (ad-hoc) wireless WiFi network to share and stream media with up to three WiFi-enabled device (e.g. iPad, iPhone, laptop or computer) at the very same time.

CloudFTP can also join an existing (infrastructure) WiFi network to share files with other devices connected to the exact same network. Below this mode, CloudFTP will also automatically connect to the Web to backup and synchronize information with popular on-line Cloud storage services like iCloud, Dropbox, box.net.

"Virtually every person own some form of USB storage device," says Daniel Chin, President of Sanho Corporation and Inventor of CloudFTP. "As Cloud storage becomes more well-known in the future, there is nonetheless an important place for nearby USB storage which is comparatively inexpensive, faster and does not need the World wide web to access data," he adds. "CloudFTP marries the a lot of benefits of standard USB media with the comfort of modern consumer electronics like the iPad and the future of Cloud computing and storage," he continues. "We are proud to be recognized by CEA for what we really believe is going to be a actually beneficial product," he concluded.
