New Family of USB 3.0 Hitachi Touro™ Pro Desktop and Mobile Drives Provide Local Backup and Online Cloud Storage for Access to your Content from Anywhere Even from Your Tablet or Smartphone.

Back it up, then beam it up In addition to providing simple local backup – check, we’ve got that – the Touro Pro family’s online storage option ensures your data is always protected and accessible in the cloud. With Hitachi’s intelligent storage solutions, you can access and share files from any web browser, tablet or smartphone – even from an iPhone and iPad using our apps. When using the cloud service, all content is stored in its natural format (no proprietary formatting), so files are easy to view, download and share from any web browser, anywhere. You can even share your online content with others by sending a web link.

Every customer receives 3GB of online storage for free and for more storage there is an option to upgrade to a quarter of a terabyte (250GB) for only $49 per year, which includes multiple computer protection. Upgrade to a
paid account and receive the Apple® iPhone® or iPad® mobile digital device apps for free.

The Hitachi Touro Pro local backup software was developed in-house by our team of uber-smart engineers. With a few clicks, the drive’s default setting will backup your photos, favorite music, videos, and documents from your computer directly to the drive. Once installed, backups run quietly and automatically every 30 minutes. And, it’s flexible enough to schedule custom backups on a time or day that’s convenient for you.

“Unbound by convention, Hitachi GST was the first to blend personal storage with cloud backup. We’re liberating our customers from the limitations of today’s technology and giving them free reign about where they store and how they access their digital content,” said Mike Williams, general manager of Hitachi GST Branded Business Group. “Our new intelligent storage products and services continue to redefine how we connect to our stuff, while providing data protection, simplicity and ease of use for just about anyone.”
