Gladinet Cloud Desktop mounts cloud storage as local folders. Users can access their cloud files in Windows Explorer. Supported storage includes FTP, WebDav servers, EMC Atmos online, Box.net, Amazon S3, Google Docs, Picasa, and more.
Once the storage is mounted as local folders, users can setup backup tasks in Gladinet, to simultaneously backup multiple local folders to a redundant arrary of cloud storage. For example, users can backup a local folder on drive C and another on drive D to an FTP server, Amazon S3 and WebDav server in a single task.
Gladinet also delivers cloud applications to the desktop. With File Type Association, Gladinet automatically chooses the appropriate web application to view the current working file. If supported, the update can be saved locally. Supported applications include Google Docs suite.
Finally, Gladinet provides single sign-on to Google applications, including Gmail, Google Picasa, Google Talk and Google Calendar.
