The Stora (MS2110), comes with a 1 TB 3.5" DATA drive and one open drive bay for a second hot-swappable drive to mirror the first for increased reliability. LAN connection is via a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and the single USB 2.0 port supports external drives for NAS backup or a USB printer.

The product is aimed at home use with a web interface designed for "non-technical" users and features focused on storage, playback and sharing of photo, music and video files.

Stora supports playback to UPnP AV, Windows Media Connect and DLNA-enabled devices as well as iTunes. All files can be accessed remotely via a web portal (www.MyStora.com) and file update notifications can be automatically published to RSS feeds and Facebook. An optional premium service supports additional remote access and third-party service integration such as Flickr and mobile phones

The Stora is backed by a three-year warranty and is available shortly for $229 U.S. MSRP. The optional "premium" service is $19.99 / year after an initial 30-day trial period.
