Over the last year or so we’ve been seeing a rapid growth in the popularity of cloud storage and on top of that the introduction of personal cloud solutions such as the EX4 from Western Digital has changed the way that we think about accessing our data on the go. In order to keep up with the demand for personal cloud storage, NAS manufacturer Thecus has announced the introduction of the Pydio open source platform to their App Centre. The Pydio platform is a completely open source platform that is designed for enterprise level storage devices and once installed on a server, it allows users to seamlessly access their data when on the go through a web-based interface or the optional mobile application.
With your data stored and accessed from your own servers, there is the reassurance that your data is not being accessed or monitored by any third parties and this also adds that element of satisfaction that you know you can access it anywhere, any time and with no restrictions at all. Over other cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Drive, there is also no restrictions on the storage capacity that is provided (the storage capacity of the server naturally is your limit) and there are also no annual or monthly fees to keep paying.
The Pydio platform is free to download from the Thecus App Centre and will work with all recent systems that can access the add-on store. As well as mobile access to your data the add-on will also benefit users by providing alerts, branding and white-labelling of business names, compatibility with various directories, high levels of security and a wide level of compatibility.
