Akitio MyCloud Mini

The MyCloud Mini is a UPnP-AV media server that sets up in less than a minute to provide instant access to streaming media.


Akitio’s new MyCloud Mini is an affordable solution that provides local networks with an easy-to-use UPnP server.

Not too long ago 3D was the hot consumer electronics technology, and now it appears that cloud computing has taken over as the new hot technology in 2012. Driven by Apple, as well as other computer and IT companies, consumers are quickly learning about the benefits of cloud computing and how these technologies can help them with their work and playtime activities.

The California-based manufacturer Akitio recently introduced its MyCloud Mini personal cloud server into the market and the product is designed to provide homeowners with an UPnP compatible solution that enables them to remotely access their digital music, video and photos. Akitio says the product incorporates a web-based browser to allow users to manage their digital content at home or on the road, and it can be controlled via its iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app. The company also says that data can be uploaded to the unit and shared from multiple workstations via SMB or FTP connections.

In addition, the unit includes HDD storage expansion capabilities via ESATA, and it sets up in less than a minute.
