BRIEF: Lenovo offers cloud service
Mar 14, 2012 (The News & Observer - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Lenovo is harnessing the power of the cloud for its customers.
The No. 2 PC maker on Tuesday announced the launch of Lenovo Cloud Storage, which enables consumers to access, sync and backup their files and other content -- photos, music and videos, among other things -- across multiple devices. The free service includes 5 gigabytes of storage capacity; additional storage capacity can be purchased.
Beginning next month, Lenovo Cloud Storage will be preloaded on Lenovo ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops and Lenovo tablet devices outside of China. Consumers also can download it for their devices as of today.
Lenovo is offering the service in conjunction with SugarSync, a free service for accessing, syncing and sharing content across devices. Lenovo Cloud Storage also can be downloaded for devices from other manufacturers.
The new service "makes it incredibly simple and convenient for people to interact with their growing libraries of digital content from anywhere, at any time," Mark Cohen, vice president, said in a statement.
Although based in China, Lenovo has an executive headquarters in Morrisville that employs about 1,800 workers.
