RemotePC recently launched RemotePC Lite, a free service
that can transform your PC into a personal cloud
that is accessible from
anywhere. This free new service makes it possible for you to use your PC or Mac
as a centralized server or cloud,
and use other PCs, Macs, or mobile devices as clients. You can select the
folders, documents, images, and emails that are enabled for cloud access
without needing to upload the data to a storage service.
"RemotePC Lite has been optimized for PCs and iPhones.
A Mac version is in the pipeline. Although online storage and sharing services
are popular, there is a sizable user base that does not feel comfortable
uploading their critical documents or images online due to privacy concerns.
Additionally, there is substantial amount of data on their PCs to transfer
online. They prefer to have permissions based control over their data, host the
data themselves and have real time access. RemotePC Lite is tailor made for
them," said Divyanand, Project Lead for the RemotePC team.
Features of RemotePC Lite include:
- Access Files and Folders enabled for remote view via any
browser or phone
- View Photos and images as thumbnails or in large/medium view
- Create share links for your friends and associates to allow
access to files, folders or photos on the remote computer
- Upload files to your remote computer and download files
enabled for remote access via the web
- Locate files and folders quickly and easily
- Read emails on the remote computer supported for Microsoft
Outlook/Outlook Express/Windows Mail via the web
A full featured remote access service with remote control is
also available and starts at $4.95/PC/month. Other options include a Small
Business option for 25 PCs at $49.50/month.
