Akitio expands product availability to include complete storage solutions with pre-installed hard drives and solid state drives

Brea, Calif. - June 25, 2013 - Akitio, a leading manufacturer of storage solutions, announced today the company will now be offering complete storage solutions with pre-installed hard drives and solid state drives. Featuring the MyCloud product line and Thunderbolt series, Akitio's storage solutions can be found at Akitio.com, Amazon.com and several online and retail outlets across the world.

Akitio's MyCloud product line was created to provide safe and secure network storage, plus enable users to share their digital content with family and friends. Users can stream content within their local network to any available UPnP-AV and DLNA compatible devices. In addition, data can also be uploaded to the Gigabit network drive and shared from multiple workstations via SMB or FTP connection, similar to any traditional NAS system. Free iOS and Android apps allow for easy remote access.

Akitio's MyCloud product line is comprised of the following storage solutions:

• 1TB MyCloud Mini
• 2TB MyCloud ONE
• 4TB MyCloud Duo
• 4TB MyCloud Pro

Akitio's Thunderbolt series includes the 256GB one bay, bus powered Thunderbolt storage solution, a follow-up to the company's successful 120GB SSD solution, which was previously launched in 2012. By incorporating the Thunderbolt connection with a speedy SSD drive, this line of storage solutions delivers the fastest transfer speeds for a single drive in an external storage device that is currently available in the market.

"Our research has shown that the average consumer prefers a plug and play solution," stated Richard Wright, director of global distribution, Akitio. "The keyword in today's marketplace is 'simplicity', and we feel that offering a complete storage solution is the best way to accomplish this."
