Official Descriptions of Google G-Drive  

Posted by Mohammad Talha in ,

Just as the flurry of coverage around Google's long-awaited GDrive announcement was beginning to die down for, well, a lack of any real news, the rumored cloud storage solution has once again reared its head, thanks to a little digging by one blogger.

Brian Ussery rooted around in the code on a Google page describing the company's various services. He eventually discovered the following abstract of the online storage app:

Online file backup and storage... GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and documents... GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device--be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone.

It's not quite an official announcement--that's expected by many to occur next month. It is, however, one more step toward the service that various news outlets have already deemed the "death of the PC." And, at the very least, it's certainly enough to get the blogosphere buzzing about GDrive again.  (story Link)

Hi Mohammad,

I work for www.nomadesk.com, which offers easy and secure file sharing, wherever you are. I read your post on Google's GDrive with great interest and just wanted to add NomaDesk to the mix.

NomaDesk, trusted by mobile (“nomadic”) businesses for several years now both in Europe and the U.S., has similar features such as the ones you mention. We are convinced that the more data gets synchronized, the more likely it gets compromised. Therefore, NomaDesk includes an encrypted virtual drive that keeps your files securely available off-line and remote file shredding and IP-tracking with TheftGuard. Of course, we impose no limits on storage and bandwidth.A Mac version is on its way.

NomaDesk works with a local client and allows access to your files from anywhere on the web. We have very good reasons to work with a local client, next to the already "traditional" web interface (e.g., box.net, the late Xdrive, etc.):

(1) 100% availability of the data, regardless of network quality
(2) 100% performance when editing files, using any type of program
(3) 100% simplicity; just drag-n-drop files to synchronize and share them
(4) 100% security on the PC also: the virtual drives that NomaDesk creates on the PC are encrypted and can be shred remotely via our online TheftGuard service.

The bulk of our users, which are SOHO and SMB teams, appreciate the straightforward and secure file sharing they get through using the NomaDesk client software. You should know that in most cases NomaDesk replaces the traditional file server, FTP and VPN - with success!

Please let me know your thoughts.

Kind regards,
F.
