Cloud storage offers a lot of convenience, but your files and organization can seem fractured when you're not storing files on your computer or when you use multiple cloud solutions. The creators of CloudBerry Drive seek to provide a solution to the difficulties that cloud hosting can sometimes present with a program that allows you to easily edit files you've stored in the cloud from your computer.
With support for over twenty of the most popular cloud hosts, including Google, Amazon S3 and RackSpace, CloudBerry Drive stands to be a success. Few other tools are as versatile as this program, which you can install to your Windows computer. One of the nice features of this app is the ability to browse files in your cloud storage using Windows Explorer or other file browsing tools that exist on your computer even if those tools aren't in the cloud itself.
The program maps your cloud storage to your computer, so you can open it like an external hard drive directly from "My Computer." There's no need for complicated sign ins or even to open your browser to access any of the data that you have in the cloud. The ability to map and mount multiple cloud storage accounts to your computer makes accessing every cloud service simple, too.
The developers plan to add new features if security if one of your concerns. Data encryption and protection will both soon be standards features of CloudBerry Drive. Updates have come fairly quickly from the developers, so we think you can expect good things from CloudBerry Drive in the future. For now, it's a useful little program if you've got a specific need -- to access data in the cloud from your PC -- and will be especially useful to small businesses that rely on cloud technologies to store their data. You must purchase subscriptions for every computer, though, so it would be nice to see the company release enterprise solutions in the near future.
