Gladinet Notes Spike in Cloud Storage Requests

New solution gives IT department heads an efficient, inexpensive way to deliver technology to the masses

As high schools, colleges and universities continue to provide an expanding array of technology services, the demand for the most applicable, affordable solutions is also on the rise. Consequently, IT department heads are increasingly looking to cloud storage as the most efficient, inexpensive way to deliver technology resources to students, faculty and campus visitors. It simply makes sense for decision-makers who are tasked with choosing smart, cost-effective IT solutions that cater to the masses, according to EDUCAUSE (http://www.educause.edu), a nonprofit that promotes intelligent technologies to educational institutions nationwide. And that's why the company Gladinet (http://www.gladinet.com/index.htm), the first and only ubiquitous cloud storage client operating within today's high-tech marketplace, is seeing a spike in cloud storage requests from EDUCAUSE members and other institutes of higher learning.

"Gladinet's main goal is to transform the Internet into a virtual PC by seamlessly integrating cloud services and applications directly onto a PC desktop," says Jerry Huang, co-owner of Gladinet. "While Gladinet's flagship product, Cloud Desktop, saves our customers both time and money, we stand apart from the competition by offering an extremely user-friendly product, enhanced with value-added applications and features that can be customized for ultimate usability. For example, after migrating students to services like Google Apps for Education, many institutions are pleased to offer their students the ability to access cloud documents through local drives on their PCs using Gladinet Cloud Desktop."

In addition to providing a comprehensive cloud-storage delivery platform, Gladinet solves the interoperable problems that are often associated with this relatively new technology. What's more, the company enables the viability of personal cloud storage, creating a marketplace in which all home and office resources are located in one place on the Internet, accessible from any hotspot, and familiar to Windows users. To ensure that its customers receive the most relevant and reliable of cloud storage technology today, Gladinet continually updates its products and services.

"The most recent release of Gladinet Cloud Desktop is version 1.2, which includes an impressive automatic-backup protection system for Google Docs, plus several other enhancements such as Windows 7 support, a totally new virtual-directory manager, and usability and stability improvements," Huang says. "All these innovations play directly into seamlessly integrating cloud storage with the desktop."
