Social networking has given rise to the need to share different types of media. The ways to share and store that media have also brought with it a plethora of new storage devices - ones with exciting features and various access methods (such as apps). The move to "the cloud" has also allowed people to access virtually anything from anywhere and from any device. Today, we look at a device that looks to meet all of those needs in a fairly simple, plug-and-play solution - the Buffalo Technology CloudStor 2TB NAS (Network Attached Storage) Server.
