The SMEStorage Multi Cloud WordPress plugin has been updated to version 1.8.
The Plugin enables a WordPress site with tables and content to be backed up to any of over 30 Storage Clouds now supported by the SMEStorage Open Cloud Platform.
The latest version of the iSMEStorage Cloud File Manager for iPhone / iPad is now in the App Store. There are a host of new features including a re-designed workflow for easier Cloud Files (and local flies) interactions, a new PDF component that supports large PDF files, and support for OpenStack and Google Sites Clouds.
The below presentation showcases the Cloud File Manager for the iPad:
We’ve updated our Chrome Dashboard plugin, which is a plugin that you can use if you use the Google Chrome browser. The update includes support for multi upload of files. We’ve also fixed directory sorting, and focus when creating new directories.
We put together some slides to highlight some of the features that exists in the iSMEStorage Cloud File Manager application for the iPhone / iPad:
We’ve just released the new version of iSMEStorage to the App Store. We put so much effort into it that is has become a major release version rather than the 1.67 version we had previously intended.
The release includes the following features:
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.
One of the things we get asked about a lot is Sync, especially for the WIndows platform, and especially for Google Docs and Amazon S3. Our Sync tools, Cloud Dashboard, Virtual Drive, shell integration etc, work above any cloud that is mapped to the SMEStorage platform. If you have a multi-cloud account and have 10 clouds mapped to our gateway then you will see 10 cloud directories from each of the different storage providers.
You can set your primary cloud for any sync directly from the Cloud Dashboard tools and and any files you nominate for sync will be sync’d with the underlying cloud. We prepared a small video that you can see below that will show you further details on how this works.
As more and more SMB’s and Organisations move to cloud they want a way to work with their files which is intuitive to the way they worked in the past. They also want ways to keep certain files in sync. For example doc files with Google Docs, maybe video or music files with Amazon S3 etc. This is the aim of our cloud desktop tools. To enable the user to have a more natural user experience and tie the desktop to the cloud environment, but in a more intuitive way, whilst at the same time layering on business features that are useful and productive to the user.
