Adam Clayton -- -- their fox -- take you know.
This little device is causing quite a few waves in the tech industry I was love the latest greatest and about the CEO.
And the -- the man behind transporter this device which could really.
Change the way we think about cloud storage in the home Jeff -- -- joining me now I see Jeff -- So transporter it would take folks back a little bit on how you came up with this idea what exactly does and why you felt there was a need.
To bring this to mark.
Show off -- most people ownership files -- -- Paul's friends went back my dad are up -- you know if something happens home might have went to school financing much confusion.
But really the only way to do any of those things that I was with various accounts and services.
And I was concerned about privacy peso a cloud services Dropbox things like -- -- right absolutely and then some lessons offline as honest as.
And they certainly felony bomb.
But they didn't address -- things I was concerned.
I was part of our privacy with mindless fun honest and caring.
And I was as far as might packing up my -- -- on the spot too much of course because too much these stories do.
So you know I told friends they have a similar problem.
And then it viewpoints and another friend and an apple -- and -- medical units and its and that they couldn't use -- -- -- can use things like problems.
A gang because of various restrictions on the opinions.
And I told them about product they were excited about it it.
So given us and just recollect seeing as we needed some time reminiscing several different industries and it's something that we decided to -- again bill.
So for those of you are familiar with -- original work you worked on Drobo that's right yeah we found the -- back in 2000 alive on the goal that was tonight.
Saint expendable storage just -- record.
What we're doing with transporters were trying to expand that out on the time most business to people united friends colleagues should work at places what you might be 1 o'clock in the back.
So who is likely to -- transporter small business owner.
Yeah we we think bugs.
So you know typical household might buy one maybe you want to back falls on me you want to -- photos with family members have them have a -- -- Chad back with you.
It's right for that small businesses -- you need to access -- for a time office when you run I don't know why pat all right final something like that.
It's right for -- So do.
We really targeting small businesses nineties when people -- and can Siemens.
However it just since -- been the case it's -- had a long and trust me launching its way groups and saw it like companies -- -- -- and just having written some collection on.
Because it's secure if you've got a business that needs to be passing information around that's confidential information most companies have that right not wanting to put it up on some cloud service somewhere that you can't rely on but having it in house having your own personal cloud it was share those files.
That's exactly right everything about -- floors completely -- So that they currently lives on the devices that you want and and the devices that you share with the -- and have a go into the never -- on the Internet.
Even a connected guy that we might the transport we unseen files and phone lines everything's 100 -- quantities you can be sure it.
All of your privacy is protected in just the same way if -- you know.
I should let our audience -- -- -- beta testing.
Transporter for a few months now and it's.
Been very simple to set up so take us walk us through the set up process I -- the transporter it shows up at my home.
And I want to get it I wanted to get up and running what is the senate process.
Sure we wanted to make that -- -- really simple.
I think we've we've other services that -- complexity.
So what we wanted to do with transport it was just hat so pretty much you don't have to manage it and told to get the transport that you plug -- man.
You know what I'm what you Wallace.
You come to a website and it's just gonna find it right there register right here now.
And then only do on line if you just frightful this one Chad says like if I this folder sharing with family members might be what it's all share with Collins.
And they need to send invites right from the website the people you want to show.
Except you have a copy of the folder they have a copy of the folder anything you put in this and that hold any differently than anything you'll.
He organized that -- it's possible that difficult -- So now -- a small business owner I don't necessarily have to have multiple transporters I could have won transporter in the office -- That -- everyone has access to -- shared folders were working on this quarter one project quarter to project those folders live here.
John is working on it.
-- working on it and it's all on this one device in the when -- off site right can still be sharing files and right back the transport one of the things that equivalent.
Storing files and -- is.
Is that you have to put the ball somewhere get them and -- are just too difficult.
What we -- want to do things just work on -- laptop sold computers and just half the rest of it I think arrow.
That's exactly how what's transport just keep working on your computer.
It -- up that they took the transporter in the background you.
You can you know and it's gone wrong and then it musicals -- -- you see just what -- computer exactly the same way it is now.
So for example I backup my photo library on my computer with the transport its monopoly patient.
And I'm just working on my foot on my computer on exactly the same way that it before it's -- connected folder which is what people with shared folders.
So it's much of his meeting that -- that the transport them and then transport -- meeting that they -- like monopoly thanks.
So not changing anything about the way I would like yeah I -- actually -- in case you know something happens it was about them.
That's great this begins to ship next week that's right and -- way.
So it's it's got to be nerve wracking time -- what is.
What is the CEO going through as a product has about a -- February 1 time it's super exciting time for us we've we've had a pretty expensive -- we have about a hundred units now on the field with people like -- -- so we've had a lot of -- -- We've been doing that now for now.
Four months it's been -- critics.
By so we're pretty sure we've got kinks now.
We had a thousand pre orders Exxon which is right so those people get you know -- shipments will go out in the next week and then -- levels.
How can people find out more information if they wanna sign up to get a -- get a transporter before -- right around launch time.
I -- can come to a website connected them to go home -- it.
Or follow transported -- either one will bring them into the website and they can learn more about it its videos about the products.
