AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CodeLathe, the leader in personal cloud, today launched a next generation personal cloud software that offers remote access to all documents, photos, music and videos stored on Intel® Core™ processor-based desktop PCs from a web browser, smartphone, tablet and DLNA-enabled devices. With Tonido, users need not worry about their privacy and security of data.
The personal cloud solution allows users to view documents, play music, browse photos, watch videos and share files without storing the files in public online services. Individuals can begin by downloading the free Tonido server app on their desktop and the free mobile app onto their portable devices. Tonido app safely connects users to the documents stored on their desktop in seconds. Users can access their files via Wi-Fi or mobile networks and automatically backup their photos and videos from mobile devices to their Tonido personal cloud.
According to Intel's the State of Cloud Adoption report conducted among 1200 IT professionals, only 13% trust public cloud with sensitive data. Changing geo-political events and increasing high profile cyber-attacks have made customers question the reliability of storing sensitive personal files. Tonido has become the leading alternative to public cloud file sharing by bringing 100% private, secure file sharing to the general public. Tonido doesn't store user credentials in Tonido controlled servers and user authentication happens directly between the client device and the Tonido server running on a Home PC.
"From security perspective, the best place to store personal files is Intel powered Home PC and the best way to access files remotely is through our Personal Cloud software Tonido. We are glad that Intel chose Tonido to power Intel's Home Media Software Solution. Our goal is to enable a Personal Cloud in every PC," said Madhan Kanagavel, founder and CEO of CodeLathe.
Tonido provides automatic backup of photos and videos from mobile phones and tablets to the Home PC. It helps to free up space in mobile devices and at the same time gives anywhere access to all media. Unlike public cloud storage services, Tonido is completely free and one never needs to pay costly yearly subscription fees.
"Popular public cloud storage services like Dropbox and OneDrive can cost anywhere from 50-100$ per year to store a TB of data. Public cloud storage services easily become an expensive affair if you consider the fact that an average household now creates gigabytes of photos each month. Alternatively, Tonido is free and the storage is limited only by users' hard drive capacity. Great value for users without compromising their privacy," said Amar Kanagaraj, CMO of CodeLathe.
Accelerating broadband speeds and powerful Intel powered PCs have been a driving force behind the adoption of consumer personal clouds. With current broadband capabilities available to homes, nothing stops them running their own personal file or media server and sharing platform. Additionally, Tonido Relay servers across three continents and six countries provide seamless access to any Tonido powered Home PC.
Tonido is the only cross-platform personal cloud application that is available on Windows, Mac and Linux as well as iOS and Android mobile operating systems. Tonido Personal Cloud solutions are white labeled by leading OEMs, and the Tonido team is currently in talks with major PC brands to enable Personal Clouds on more PCs.
