"The Zonbu device does not have a hard disk. Instead, a 4GB
compact flash (similar to what digital cameras and MP3
players use) stores the operating system and the application
which have been installed. The remaining space of the
compact flash is used as a cache to store local copies of
files you've recently used; special software keeps these
copies synchronized with the online storage servers. "
It may be possible to hack the device to use local (NFS)
storage, but that's not the business model this company
appears to be using.
