    Ben,

    Any idea how much storage space these guys are going to offer?

  2. Ben Kepes

    Krish – At the moment it’s set u as the portal to a bunch of oher services. As such it can be “home” to all the third party storage plays – syncplicity, sugarsync, box etc etc. Currently it supports box “out of the box”. Byut Symantec is planning on adding their own storage service in time – no word on size.

    Hi Ben. Full disclosure here: I work for http://www.nomadesk.com, which offers easy and secure file sharing, wherever you are. I read your post on GoEverywhere with great interest and just wanted to add NomaDesk to the mix.
    In fact, NomaDesk is geared towards the need of the “digital nomad”. We are convinced that the more data gets synchronized, the more likely it gets compromised. Therefore, NomaDesk 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.
    The current NomaDesk release 2.6 displays file states and indicate whether files are already in use by someone else. You are also able to add and review notes (i.e. meta-data). The Mac version is on its way.

    I would appreciate your review.
    Filip.

    Great post and thanks for the interest in our beta launch you can see my post on the subject at http://www.goeverywhere.com/welcome-to-new-users/. We will evolve the service based on user feedback, so please try it out and let us know what you think.
    To answer a few of your questions… since we are currently in beta we have not determined the final go-to market pricing. We are going to focus on getting the utility of the service to be the best we can as we finalize the subscription pricing. Also, we currently do not offer Symantec storage, but it is on our roadmap. The quantity has not be determined at this date, but we will let you know when it’s available on our blog at http://www.goeverywhere.com/blog/.
    I am excited to finally be part of the cloud conversation, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me directly. I am always interested in your views on all things cloud computing.
