Data Storage Leader PROMISE Debuts First Consumer Product at CES

Apolloa secure Cloud for your private circlefor easy
storage, access and sharing of digital content

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PROMISE
Technology
marked its foray into the consumer electronics market
today at CES with the unveiling of Apollo,
a personal Cloud appliance and app that gives users and their circles or
groups full control over the storage and selective sharing of their
digital content. Designed with families, small businesses, and small
office / home office in mind, Apollo makes it easy for a group of
members to store, access and share selected data from wherever they
happen to be.


This week at CES, PROMISE will demonstrate Apollo’s many features at
booth #21731, located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention
Center Tech East. Apollo will be showcased at the Showstoppers
media-only event on January 6 at the Wynn Hotel, Table F4.

Apollo is a small, quiet appliance that stores huge amounts of data—up
to 4 TB. It’s a valuable asset to consumers who find it difficult to
manage treasured family photos and videos that proliferate like wildfire
on family members’ phones, tablets and laptops and at increasingly high
resolutions. The Apollo device provides consumers with:

  • Huge Storage Space—available to all members, with no recurring
    fees.
  • Quick Access to Personal Content from Anywhere—Apollo’s mobile
    app offers fast access and speedy playback of stored videos and other
    media content wherever the Internet is available.
  • Each member gets private space and sharing control—unlike
    other solutions.
  • Easy to set up and use from any device, anywhere—you don’t
    need to mess with several apps or hook up a PC to manage your Apollo.
  • Private and Secure—Apollo provides peace of mind knowing that
    all data is off the Web, safe and secure on your personal Cloud, with
    all transactions encrypted.
  • Elegant, quiet yet sturdy design—well suited for a desk,
    entertainment center or closet.
  • Social Elements—Apollo enables friends and family to comment on
    and discuss shared content such as videos and photos within an
    entirely private environment.

“Apollo marks a significant milestone for our company, and we are very
excited to tap into the consumer market with a personal cloud device
that makes it easy to store and share digital media,” said James Lee,
CEO of PROMISE Technology. “Although bankers’ boxes and filing cabinets
are no longer required to store treasured photos, many people find that
their desktop, mobile devices and stacks of USB drives no longer do the
trick either. With Apollo, however, PROMISE has delivered a personal
cloud storage device that’s affordable, secure, robust and—most
importantly—easy to use.”

“With the ubiquity of connected electronic devices and digital
technology, data storage isn’t just a problem for the enterprise, it’s
also a problem in the family home,” said Vijay Char, VP Business
Development, PROMISE Technology. “Apollo lets users control all data and
sharing—making it a better option for consumers who currently use
Web-based cloud solutions but worry about services going down or losing
data altogether, or having their information commandeered by Big Data
marketers or, worse, breached and exploited by hackers.”

Distribution: Apollo will be available soon, exclusively at Apple
stores.
