Nomadesk – The Virtual File Server for Nomadic Businesses

The folks over at Nomadesk dropped a comment on the Wuala post so I thought I should highlight them in case any of you are in need of a virtual file server.  I dug up the video below on YouTube but I don’t think it does the product justice.  If you head over to their homepage they have a good promo video (which I hope they also post to YouTube so that I can easily embed it).  Nomadesk is free to try for 90 days but $15 per license after that.

  1. Thanks for bringing NomaDesk up. Feel free to send me your feedback.

  2. NomaDesk is essentially an FTP client on steroids. There are free, ad-hoc solutions that basically do the same thing that have been available for over a year. “Gmail Drive” is a windows shell that does almost the exact same thing as NomaDesk, imitating a regular hard drive on your desktop, but syncing with a gmail account. Draw backs: the G-Drive is not supported by Google, data packets can only be 15 mb or less (standard upward limit for attachments) and uploading/downloading more than a gigabyte a day will cause your account to freeze for 24 hours. Using WinRAR to break your large data into different units and monitoring of download/upload use can avoid these problems however.

    There is also the Firefox plug-in “G-Space”, which quite literally is purely an FTP client for your web browser. It also has cool gimmicks, like built in photo browser and built in mp3 flash play back. I personally like G-Space because I can install the browser plug-in on any computer (even Mac), use at will, and then remove. Same drawbacks apply.

    If you create a separate GMail account solely for data, you can share across multiple platforms in the same way, for free and up to 7 gigs of storage (so far). Don’t tell Google though, they might get mad.
