    Hi Krishnan,

    I work for http://www.nomadesk.com, which offers easy and secure file sharing, wherever you are. I read your post on cloud computing with great interest and just wanted to add NomaDesk to the mix.

    NomaDesk, trusted by mobile (“nomadic”) businesses for several years now both in Europe and the U.S., is a hybrid of client and cloud based services.
    NomaDesk works with a local client and allows access to your files from anywhere on the web. It includes an encrypted virtual drive that keeps your files securely available off-line and remote file shredding and IP-tracking with TheftGuard. Of course, we impose no limits on storage and bandwidth. A Mac version is on its way.

    We have very good reasons to work with a local client that taps into the cloud:

    (1) 100% availability of the data, regardless of network quality
    (2) 100% performance when editing files, using any type of program
    (3) 100% simplicity; just drag-n-drop files to synchronize and share them
    (4) 100% security on the PC also: the virtual drives that NomaDesk creates on the PC are encrypted and can be shred remotely via our online TheftGuard service.

    The bulk of our users, which are SOHO and SMB teams, appreciate the straightforward and secure file sharing they get through using the NomaDesk client software. You should know that in most cases NomaDesk replaces the traditional file server, FTP and VPN – with success!

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    Kind regards,
    F.
