SMEStorage (http://www.smestorage.com/), a multi-cloud data access provider, has released the second beta of a Mac Cloud Drive that enables up to 10 commercial storage providers to be accessed directly from a virtual drive in Mac Leopard and Snow Leopard Operating Systems.
“We are really pleased to announce the second beta of our virtual cloud drive for the Mac,” CEO Ian Osborne says. “This drive enables users to access their cloud storage files directly from their shell or Mac Finder. The drive brings cloud computing directly into the Mac OS with over 10 popular Cloud Storage vendors supported, including Amazon S3, Google Docs, Microsoft SkyDrive and RackSpace Cloud Files.”
Having a virtual Cloud Drive on the Mac fits SME’s business strategy of providing data access entry points that overlay all storage clouds and include all operating systems, as well the best of breed mobile vendors, he adds. As part of the next release SME will also be adding sync so that user can have desktop sync directly to their Mac from any storage cloud the company supports. Just remember: beta software is unfinished software so use with care.
