Making an appeal to SMBs grappling with ongoing growth in data, critical files, email, and media, Intel Corp. formally announced its latest Intel Atom processor-based storage solution this week.

Powered by the Intel Atom processor D2550 or the Intel Atom processor D2500, the architecture offers SMBs multimedia capabilities, energy efficiency, and performance for the delivery of the personal cloud to business and consumer applications.

“Intel’s next-generation Atom processor provides an ideal solution for powering intelligent storage system designs that will act as a personal cloud inside the office or home and will deliver better ways to store and access data,” says David Tuhy, Intel’s storage division general manager. “With a range of systems designers on board, the Intel Atom processor-based storage solution raises the bar in how data is stored, managed and shared.”

“Retailers, financial services firms, and medical and legal offices require on-site solutions to store and access data locally as well as the ability to access that data remotely,” states Intel in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB. “With this solution, businesses can provide their employees with a personal cloud storage experience so they can have fast, secure access to files from work, home or on the road from any connected device.”

The solution is supported by the McAfee AV SDK and VirusScan. This is designed to provide SMBs with “a valuable tool for protection against data corruption and virus attacks.”

Centralized backup of all devices also assures businesses that their data is protected. Businesses with video surveillance systems can attach up to two monitors to a single platform-based storage device and view up to four camera feeds with HD-quality clarity.
