Autonomic Announces Support for Amazon Cloud

Disparate music libraries be gone, Autonomic's cloud music servers sync all of your music into one global locker for the ultimate user experience.

Amonk, NY - April 18, 2011 - Autonomic Controls, Inc. announced today that support for Amazon's new Cloud Drive service will be available in all models of Autonomic Mirage Media Servers (MMS -2 and MMS -5) with a free firmware update during the second quarter.


Autonomic revolutionized the music streaming experience with its award -winning Mirage Media Server, the first to store digital content collections in a secure, online locker, which provides global access and automatic synchronization between locations. The Amazon Cloud Drive integration bolsters Autonomic's growing list of supported online services which currently includes PANDORA® internet radio, TuneIn Radio (RadioTime) and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Autonomic delivers the experience of an aggregated music collection so that you no longer think of it as a collection of iTunes libraries and internet accounts, but simply as your music.

Music purchased from Amazon.com will instantly be available on all of your Mirage Media Servers via your Amazon Cloud Drive. According to Amazon, customers will start with 5 GB of Cloud Drive storage to upload their digital music library, and those who purchase an Amazon MP3 album will be upgraded to 20 GB of Cloud Drive space. New Amazon MP3 purchases saved directly to Cloud Drive are stored for free. Integrating the Amazon Cloud into the Autonomic MMS provides customers with an unprecedented system to store, sync, access and stream their digital music collections, including both existing and future purchases. The Autonomic MMS will automatically upload new content to the Amazon Cloud and then synchronize all of your digital music to your MMS servers around the globe. Autonomic dealers will be able to offer their customers functionality and a user experience simply not available natively in these numerous disparate devices and music services.

"From the start, we made support for cloud storage a foundation of the MMS architecture, beginning with a successful integration with MP3Tunes.com," said Michael Toscano, Autonomic Co -founder and Chief Technology Officer. "Knowing the cloud is the future, our R&D efforts have been focused on Amazon's S3 cloud storage network for some time. This has put us in the perfect position to leverage support for the Amazon Cloud Drive quickly."

Integration support is currently being tested internally, pending release within 60 days. Qualified Autonomic dealers with demo MMS -5 systems in -house can request to be included in beta testing by emailing beta@autonomic -controls.com.
