Toshiba Canvio Hard Drives to Have Cloud Backup Soon


Toshiba is all set to make use of the latest Cloud technology. The multi-national company will now add a cloud backup feature to their Canvio hard drives.

Canvio Hard Drives

They have also introduced Canvio hard drives for computer gadgets which support USB 3.0 giving transfer speed up to 6Gbps compared to the USB 2.0 which gives only 480 Mbps. The Canvio hard drives are available in 500 GB, 750 GB and 1 TB. These hard drives also come with a user interface to help customers access the cloud for storage. Once the customers plug in the Canvio hard drive they will get an option to make an account with BackupNow EZ which is run by Microsoft Azure. After making the account the user can select the files he/she wants to store in the cloud.

Get Free Trial

This service is not free. A 30-day free period will be given to all the Canvio owners but after that payment will be required to store data in the cloud. The Canvio can also be used as bootable drive in case the computer crashes. Canvio is protected from daily movement when placed in pocket, bag or desk. Canvio 3.0 costs $89.99 for 500GB and $139.00 for 1TB model.

    Dave, I agree that the current state of the EHR market is not Cloud ready. Running a Microsoft Application over Citrix is not an Enterprise solution. There is also a lot of cost associated with “mission critical” software. Many organization do not want to spend what it cost to have a fully duplex, hot standby system. True mission critical system must include, full redundancy, hot standby with failover software, dual IP routing through separated pathways and carriers along with backup power.
