SAN DIEGO, June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Iomega, an EMC company (NYSE: EMC) and a global leader in data protection, today announced that the Iomega® Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition has been awarded the "Editor's Pick" by WIRED magazine in a side-by-side comparison of the major consumer network hard drives.
In a feature titled "Local Clouds" in the June issue of WIRED magazine, the Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition was selected as "Editor's Pick" over competing network storage products from Buffalo, Seagate and Western Digital.
"The Iomega (Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition) piles on the features without getting bloated," writes WIRED editor Christopher Null. "Easily compatible with both DLNA devices and iTunes, it was the best drive we tested for sharing across multiple computers. It can also be set to automatically backup Mozy or Amazon S3 accounts and to share files with Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, or a predetermined list of users…"
Jonathan Huberman, president of Iomega Corporation, said, "It is extremely gratifying when a prestigious, world-renowned publication such as WIRED magazine recognizes one of our network storage products as their favorite in its category. Iomega is committed to bringing to market the best network storage products for the home, SOHO and SMB markets. As part of EMC, the world's leader in cloud technology, Iomega incorporates not only fundamental but advanced features in our network storage products, such as our new Personal Cloud technology. We couldn't be happier or more appreciative that WIRED has recognized our product and its competitive advantages."
