    Not so much of trying to hit 10Gbps throughput, but anything above USB2.0 will be great, because Macs don't have 3.0...
    Try a cabled network NAS. At 1GBps for consumer class, it's pretty fast already. You can easily get 100+MB transfer rate even for low powered for a couple of WD Green HDs.

    Is there a typo ? Seems like you are not recommending cloud

    In any case, I wouldn't recommend cloud yet. I guess the majority have asymmetric internet service where upload is pathetic, getting data up the cloud will be a challenge at the moment unless they have the latest fibre optic solution and service provider with more decent upload speed.

    Well high speed download, upload is hardly high speed in SG. you have to pay hefty for fast upload speed before Fibre Optics. Now if you are on FO, you get much better upload speed, but certainly nothing to wow at.

    Besides, I'm not sure about your concern, but certainly cloud has security concern that is still an issue for a lot of corporates to take the big step into it, though they are moving now. Still it's a concern.

    Moreover, please don't be mistaken that cloud is really that "safe". Amazon not long ago had a outrage that loses some of the customers' data.

    I think cloud is too large, which online service are you talking about. Typically I don't recommend it unless you have really good upload speed.
