SME Cloud Gateway Appliance now supports DropBox

The SMEStorage multi-cloud gateway now supports DropBox. We’ve had quite a lot of users asking us to provider support for DropBox as provider in our Cloud Gateway and we are pleased to be able to add this.

As with all our cloud storage providers, once they are added to the cloud gateway it means that you will be able to gain access to your DropBox files over the web from our site. We add some extra features over and above what DropBox offers which include integrations with Zoho so you can edit office documents inline, integration with Google Viewer and Sribd so you can view PDF’s and other files inline, integrations with image editors etc.

The DropbBox files will also be available through all our desktop OS (Mac, Windows, Linux) and mobile client tools (iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry).  If you have a Lifetime Cloud account then you will be able to aggregate DropBox into a Cloud File view that can include up to 10 other clouds including Google Docs.

You will also be able to take advantage of some of the features we add on top of all the cloud providers we support, including managed encryption and CloudDav (a WebDav layer that can be added above DropBox).

Linux Multi Cloud Sync Update: Sync SkyDrive, S3 Google Docs and other Clouds to the Linux desktop

Those users who use the full version of our Windows tools will be familiar with our Sync Tools in which you can Sync your desktop data with that in the clouds. We are now almost ready to release the same functionality for Linux to compliment the ongoing beta of our Linux Virtual Drive.

This functionality means thatYou can work locally with files on your Linux desktop and be secure in the knowledge that they will be sync’d back to the Cloud and available, whatever that cloud is.

For companies whose user-base is heterogeneous, from an OS standpoint, it means that the Linux user is not the poor relation, he has the same Cloud tools and functionality as his Windows counterpart.

The Linux Sync tools will work with Google Docs, Microsoft SkyDrive, Mezeo personal cloud storage, Microsoft Live Mesh, Apple MobileMe, Amazon S3, RackSpace Cloud Files, Box.net, WebDav, FTP Clouds, GMail (GDrive), Email Clouds, and also, soon DropBox.

You can expect to see the Linux Sync tools on our Labs page sometime next week.
