Seagate has unveiled the newest addition to its GoFlex family of hard drives-the GoFlex Home network storage system that enables an entire household to centrally store, access and back up files wirelessly from both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems on the home network, when connected to a wireless router.

The new centralised storage system is compatible with Apple Time Machine and includes a version of the backup application for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It enables to wirelessly stream photos, movies and music to most network connected DLNA devices, such as game consoles or a GoFlex TV HD media player. It is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities.

GoFlex Home’s modular design enables the included drive to be upgraded when needed by removing the drive from the base and replacing it with a higher capacity GoFlex Desk hard drive. Families can also add more storage to the GoFlex Home system by connecting additional drives to the USB port.

Using the included remote access and file sharing service on GoFlex Home system called Seagate Share service, families can access movies, music or photo files stored on their GoFlex Home system from any internet connected computer.

The GoFlex Home system also offers a premium service option-the Seagate Share Pro remote access service-that allows families to access content stored on the drive from mobile devices such as an iPhone, iPad or BlackBerry, integrate photos or files with Facebook and Flickr.

Darcy Clarkson, vice president of retail sales and marketing at Seagate, said: "The GoFlex Home system makes it easy for families wanting to quickly and effortlessly backup, enjoy, and share their favorite home movies music or photos from any room in the house. With the GoFlex Home system, now home networking is within reach for today’s digital households."
