Last week I got a chance to talk to PogoPlug CEO Dan Putterman. And, what came to mind is Pogoplug's Amazon Glacier integration is a Goldilocks story. Not too hot (expensive, yet fast). Not too cold (cheaper, but slow). Something just right which is a mix of hot and cold.

Mediabolic's software now powers millions of next generation digital consumer electronics devices. Additionally, he founded MaxInfo, the first collaborative Web media design software for the Internet (and acquired by NetManage), as well as EoExchange, a multimedia search engine for the Web. Over the last 20 years, Daniel has worked as an entrepreneur advocate, and has invested and teamed with colleagues to launch numerous Silicon Valley companies.
Daniel spent the earlier part of his career in senior management positions at Borland International and Symantec Corporation, where he was responsible for product management, business development and worldwide evangelism. He is a passionate and outgoing speaker on technology trends and issues. His dog, Riso, is our office mascot, troublemaker and vacuum cleaner.
It's one of the things I like about blogging is getting a 1/2 hr to talk to executives about their product from my home office, and learn a bit more.
The press announcement that PogoPlug released this morning is for integration with Amazon Glacier.
Pogoplug Introduces New Cloud Storage Service Using Amazon Glacier
The Amazon Glacier support provides a tiered storage strategy with your local PogoPlug device, Amazon S3, and Glacier. This range gives the benefits of hot local storage, cloud for Internet access speeds, and cold tape back-up for peace of mind.
Part of geeking out with Dan was discussing Mac Time Machine support and how his device compares to the Drobo-FS I have in my office.
Not you don't have to store everything in the cloud if you don't have the Internet bandwidth.
ArchiveOnce your data is safely stored on your Pogoplug, with one click you can choose to have a second copy of all or part of your data automatically and continuously archived to Pogoplug’s secure cloud. This additional backup protects your most critical files in case of a disaster at home, keeping your data twice as safe.
I am kind of surprised how much press there is one the announcement, but that is the benefit of being one of the first with Amazon Glacier support.
