The Smart Little Box for Huge Data Storage

Whether you want it for your individual use, for your family and its data storage needs, or for your small business, the ZexaBox is the perfect data center for you to finally get rid of the limitations, costs and risks that conventional centralized systems like Google Drive, DropBox and iCloud bring along.

Smarter, Safer, Faster, Stronger

Let’s get down to the details so that you can understand how ZexaBox’s magic works. This is a NAS – Network-Attached Storage device that offers you the chance of having all your data securely stored without being exposed to the frustrating frameworks of large scale centralized cloud services. ZexaBox lets you store all the data kept in different devices, hundreds of movies, and hundreds of thousands of photos and songs, and all that through a Plug & Play device that allows you to take control of your digital life without requiring any kind of technological expertise.

The Problem

Redefining Trust

Internet solves the problem of information production and communication in the early days when it was born. While we are able to spread the information to every corner on earth with Internet coverage in just a few clicks, the issues of value and trust transfer remain unsolved. In the long course of the development of human history, the maintenance cost of trust, from interpersonal to institutional is universally recognized. 

With the emergence of the decentralized Internet, however, the chances of reducing the cost of trust are considerably high. For the centralized system, trust is only limited to certain institutions, areas or countries even with its credibility endorsement; the decentralized Internet has mathematical algorithm as its endorsement, which is a public, transparent and global language for people to reach a consensus.

Today, most web traffic passes through corporate web servers, putting them in the middle of our interactions. But by replacing the function of corporate servers with our own computers we cut out the middlemen and take back control. Our voices can be heard again.

Whether it is between your family members, employees or team members, ZexaBox offers you the distributed storage system that offers encrypted data transmission that is as secure as it is fast and responsive. 

With ZexaBox, you and those within your trusted network control your own data and what you share between your network, while being sure that it never exposed to leaks and other risks commonly affecting the data stored in conventional and centralized cloud systems.

What’s the differences between a centralized and a distributed Internet?

ZexaBox is human-centered. We aim to create a system which is more secure, transparent and democratic that is able to bring people together in more powerful and effective ways. By taking the control back into the hands of users, we enable humanity to access entirely new possibilities for how we do economics, governance, medicine, and community.

Why ZexaBox is special

Taking Safety and Speed Seriously

ZexaBox also allows you to directly record from IP cameras to your private cloud system, supporting real-time play and storage. That’s how it lets you keep up with what’s happening at your home or business while you’re away on the ZexaBox App. 

What’s better, ZexaBox allows users to manage footages recorded by security cameras from 48 brands and over 10,000 models in one App. No need to download a bunch of different Apps of different brands anymore. ZexaBox also supports external USB storage, for a fully convenient experience. 

With ZexaBox, being offline doesn’t mean being disconnected or kept from enjoying your stored digital content. You could check out your files anywhere at any time even if you are offline. When you’re away from home, the upload and download of data can be done through the ZexaBox app, and it will be as fast as your bandwidth’s device allows it to be. 

ZexaBox is ready to be ultra-fast, but it will mostly keep up with your device’s rhythm. The app’s features also include the option of sending and receiving files via face-to-face device passthrough, in a way that is very similar to Apple’s Airdrop feature.

Features

An Exclusive Solution that Goes Affordable and Mainstream

Developed by a cloud storage business that has been mostly working with large businesses, governments and institutions, ZexaBox has been developed to allow final customers, such as individuals, families and small business owners, to enjoy the kind of special features that had been this far reserved exclusively to large organizations. Plus, with ZexaBox you’re no longer stuck with monthly payments – you buy it once, and it’s yours. Just as it should be.

The Box That’s Got Your (Digital) Back

Keeping your digital content easily accessible and securely stored shouldn’t be as difficult as it often proves to be. That’s why ZexaBox makes it as easy as you want it to be. So, how does ZexaBox do it? By automatically downloading all your digital content from your phone, tablet, computer, external hard drive, and other cloud storage solutions that you use and uploading it to ZexaBox, or even to a trusted network of devices, ZexaBox ensures that all your digital data is seamlessly kept from being lost, encrypted to the highest security standards, and conveniently accessible from anywhere, at any time.

When Securely Sharing Gives Points in Return

To make it even better, ZexaBox offers you a win-win proposition in every respect. We incentivize sharing your computer’s spare capacity by rewarding you with ZexaBox Diamond, our reward point. By securely allowing others to use your spare digital capacity, you’re more or less renting portions of your computer and Internet connection capacities, getting ZexaBox Diamonds in return.

What’s ZexaBox Diamond?

ZexaBox Diamond is the reward for sharing your computer’s spare capacity. It is a reward that could be used to consume or redeem on ZexaBox’s online market. 

How can I use ZexaBox Diamond?

Spend it through a variety of computer accessories and ZexaBox’s online marketplace. Redeem diamond earned for other ZexaBox’s services.
