Apollo Cloud 2 Duo Announced

Today promised technologies announced their new storage device, the Apollo Cloud 2 Duo. Which features 8 TB of storage and promises an easy setup.

“In launching our second-generation product, we designed the Apollo Cloud Duo with careful consideration and our consumers needs in mind,” said Justin Cleveland, Promise Technology’s Director of Biz Dev – IoT. “Aligning with our main goal to redesign storage and sharing, the Duo is easy to use and ensures content is always with the consumer – whether they are at home or on-the-go.”

Here is a list of some additional key features:

  • Quick Camera Roll Backup – Taking countless photos is great for capturing important memories, but terrible for the onboard storage on your devices.   Apollo Cloud allows you to instantly free up space on your phone with the swipe of a finger.   Now, you can auto-sync your photos and not worry about that dreaded “storage full” alert just when you need to snap a picture or video.
  • Location Based & Facial Recognition Photo Albums – When you have thousands of photos it’s pretty hard to remember where you took them.  Now, the Apollo Cloud app can help catalog your photos by geotagging them and pinpointing the exact location of a photo’s origin and saving them into albums by location.  Also, looking for a photo of a specific person?  Apollo Cloud helps you by identifying those in your photos and creating special albums for each person.  This can save you time when you’re looking for a particular photo.
  • Time Machine® Support – Not only can you backup multiple Mac’s to the same Apollo, but Apollo is the only device that features incremental Time Machine backups over the Internet.  So, no matter where you are you can still backup.


  • Hard Drive – Apollo Cloud 2 Duo features a fast Marvell Dual Core processer.  You can set up Duo to be configured as RAID0 (stripped) or RAID1 (mirrored) based on your needs.  In RAID0, you will have access to all 8TB for storage and RAID1 will give you access to 4TB of storage space with the other 4TB used as a mirrored backup.  In addition, Duo allows hot swappable hard drives giving you the freedom to switch out hard drives quickly.

“We believe Apollo Cloud 2 Duo is chockfull of features that will make our users’ lives easier,” said Vijay Char, president, Promise Technology USA.  “We understand that our customers trust our devices with their precious photos and important documents, which is why we aim to create products that will give them the ability to save and share whatever they want, whenever they want, safely and simply.”

Apollo Cloud 2 Duo is available now at www.promise.com for $449 and is compatible with iOS, MacOS, Android and Windows.  For additional information and learn more about all features, visit www.promise.com or follow Promise Technology on LinkedInFacebook or Twitter.
