Cloud Engines, the company behind “personal cloud” Pogoplug, announced it has raised $15 million led by new investors Softbank Capital and Morgan Stanley Investment Partners along with existing investor Foundry Group. 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.

    TonidoPlug is in many ways better than Pogo. Offers much more value to end users. With Motorola’s acquisition of ZumoDrive, the home cloud market segment is getting Hotter. I wonder who is going to invest in Tonido.
