Cloud Engines said the new capital will go toward expanded global distribution of the Pogoplug service and devices.

Pogoplug is a small appliance that allows users to access their files remotely from their home storage. It also comes with a free online service that allows users to access and share their data online. It’s been popular with users who are able to turn any USB drive into an online storage locker.

Pogoplug has steadily added features over time including a recent update called Pogoplug Pro, a business version called Pogoplug Biz and web printing, enabling printers to connect to the Pogoplug and print from anywhere.
