Space Monkey revolutionizes the Cloud by giving consumers a device that takes the place of datacenters, making cloud storage much more efficient, faster, cheaper, and greener. With Space Monkey, consumers have a full copy of up to 1TB of files in their home for easy access and upload, with a full copy of all that data also stored in the virtual cooperative network formed globally by the devices themselves, making that data accessible and sharable from anywhere in the world, and providing a nearly indestructible backup copy to prevent data loss. Consumers can auto-upload pictures and videos from mobile devices with the Space Monkey App, can upload and access files as if on their hard drive from the Space Monkey Desktop apps, and can access and upload from a web browser on any Internet-enabled device.
