It is.

"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.
