The Pogoplug Family service ranges from $29 per year for up to three users and a total of 100 GB of Amazon Glacier cloud storage to $99 per year for up to seven users and 1 TB of Amazon Glacier service. The Pogoplug device is included free of charge with Pogoplug Family.
The Pogoplug Team service ranges from $199 per year for 5 users and up to 1 TB of Amazon Glacier storage to $999 per year for up to 25 users and a total of 5 TB of Amazon Glacier storage. Pogoplug Team provides full customization of the user interface to allow a company to appear as if it is running its own private cloud, Putterman said.
In both cases, the service includes the cost of the Amazon Glacier service, which otherwise costs as little as 1 cent per GB per month, he said.
Recovering data that goes through the Pogoplug device to Amazon Glacier requires the Pogoplug device because of the company's own file system, Putterman said. "But we're well funded, with over $30 million in funding so far," he said. "I have a stated policy that if anything happens to us, we will open source our technology."
Pogoplug currently has over one million users worldwide, and it sells both directly and through over 15,000 reseller partners in the U.S. and Japan, Putterman said. The company is in the process of putting together a channel program for the new Amazon Glacier service, he said.
