Polkast(TM) Advances Personal Cloud ComputingThe Innovative New PC-to-PC Access Feature Removes the Need for an External Cloud Service by Creating a User-Friendly File Virtualization System (January 04, 2012)
CAPO BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/12 -- Polkast, a revolutionary new service that lets users securely connect to their PC directly from their mobile devices, announced today it is transforming personal cloud computing with its new PC-to-PC Access feature. Polkast is filling an important gap in the market with this pioneering file virtualization system. Users can now easily connect multiple computers directly, providing complete access to all of their files, no matter where the files are stored. The PC-to-PC Access feature is part of the upcoming Pro Version, which is geared toward business users who want to connect multiple computers and create their own secure personal cloud.
The new PC-to-PC feature transcends typical cloud services and negates the need for online cloud sync and storage. It addresses any security concerns associated with storing data on a third party server, i.e. cloud storage provider. It also resolves any speed, compatibility or reliability issues commonly associated with cloud computing. It is the ideal solution for anyone who wants anytime access to their digital content while keeping their files within their own environment and control.
"We all have content spread across many devices, and it's particularly challenging to juggle it all between home, work and travel," said Hong Bui, founder and CEO of Polkast. "We wanted to make it easier for people to switch between multiple computers, without having to worry about where they last saved a file, mixing their personal and work information, or compromising their privacy."
Polkast takes a new approach to the cloud. Instead of uploading your content to an online storage service for remote access, it lets you access your computer files directly anywhere, at any time from your other computer, tablet, or smartphone. There is no intermingling of personal and work files, no additional storage costs, and no time wasted uploading and downloading to cloud storage as an intermediate step. Polkast lets you easily build your own personal cloud on the devices you already own. It's a great alternative for people who are not comfortable with the cost and loss of control with public cloud storage solutions.
Polkast is available on the iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets, and computers with Windows 7, Vista, XP and Mac OSX. For more information visit www.polkast.com.
The new Pro version with the PC-to-PC feature will be offered as a subscription through the iTunes and Android app stores, after a free trial period. Polkast will continue to offer a free version of the app for users with just one computer and unlimited mobile devices.
