Reuters: Memopal and Hitachi Team up to Protect Even More Hard Disks in the Cloud


Memopal, a European start-up offering online backup services, has teamed up with Hitachi GST to power integrated online backup for the new LifeStudio family of external hard drives, which revolutionize the way images, video, music and documents are protected, organized and shared.

Hitachi GST LifeStudio drives take data protection to the next level, offering both local and online cloud backup in one integrated solution and within a single interface – no more downloading and installing two separate programs. Thanks to Memopal, all online content is stored in its natural format, so files are available from any Internet browser worldwide, and even from iPhone®, iPad®, BlackBerry and Android.

All LifeStudio customers receive 3GB of free online space, which can be expanded to 250GB for Euro 49/year for multiple computer protection. Backing up files can be frustrating and time-consuming. However, thanks to Memopal and Hitachi GST LifeStudio drives, backups are now simple and automatic.
