Data security is one of the most talked about elements in computing and data loss is a very active concern. No one likes losing files that slow down their work progress or in some cases even shuts down projects completely, so releasing a drive that emphasizes data security was a pretty smart movie from Seagate.

With the Seagate Duet, Seagate partnered with Amazon to bring some very cool capabilities to a USB hard drive that can store up to 1 TB of data. However, the kicker here is that the drive will come with Amazon Drive integration. Amazon Drive is Amazon’s cloud service and will help users keep their files safe. Data recorded on the Seagate Duet will also be copied and stored on Amazon’s Drive platform.

Having a complementary cloud backup for your files doesn’t sound like the worst idea. Once you buy the Duet, you have two months at your disposal to take advantage of the bundle. The price complements the device nicely as for only $100, you not only get a free unlimited storage plan for Amazon Drive but also 1TB of storage space. Starting from the 10th of December, you will be able to buy the Seagate Duet while those too impatient can pre-order it right away.

Enjoying automatic cloud backup for your computer can come in handy as physical backups have a tendency to get lost or become corrupted, especially if there is some kind of unplanned for event like a fire or a nasty storm.
