Giveaway: win a Kanex meDrive File Server
Thursday, April 25, 2013 @ 6:20pm

Cloud storage has proven to be extremely useful; however, web-based services can get to be a bit pricey if more capacity is needed. The new Kanex meDrive Filer Server provides a cost-effective way to set up a local cloud storage system in a home or office. MacNN has teamed up with Kanex to give away one of these handy little devices to our readers.

The Kanex meDrive is a file server that turns any USB storage device into a network drive that can be accessed from devices like the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch as well as computers running Mac OS X or Windows. Create local cloud storage for faster access to files and secure sharing. Use any other USB storage device to increase the capacity of the network. Users of Apple iWork suite (Keynote, Pages, Numbers) will find this device ideal for local file sharing with its built-in WebDAV support. Users can save iWork files directly to meDrive-attached USB storage for local access and sharing. Mac and PC users alike will find it easy to connect and mange files through OS X Finder and Windows Explorer. The meDrive would be ideal for a classroom looking for local cloud storage, a household with multiple devices that need a central file server to store media, or a small business looking to securely manage files across platforms. The product includes one Ethernet cable, one mini USB cable and includes a one-year warranty from Kanex. The Kanex meDrive retails for $99 at
