A web based program is used to access the drive from your browser, and it can be programmed to run various auto-backup duties for all computers on it's network as well as host files and programs and in a home environment would be used to host media as well.

Other included software such as an onboard iTunes server and BitTorrent/eMule/FTP/HTTP/NZB servers mean you don't need a computer to use them now, you can download content straight to the unit.
