Aventiv Launches NomaDesk 2.5, the First Virtual Fileserver Geared to Digital Nomads - Where Online Storage Meets Backup, Synchronization and File Sharing Software


ATLANTA, Ga. & BRUSSELS, Belgium--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Aventiv’s NomaDesk is the first virtual fileserver that lets mobile professionals, or “Digital Nomads”, intuitively edit, share, store, backup and synchronize files effortlessly and securely across company boundaries and the Internet. NomaDesk offers a virtual (SaaS) fileserver with an interface that is seamlessly integrated into the Windows operating system. Fully encrypted, it is the simplest way to secure important business files while ensuring they are never at-risk nor out-of-reach, even when an Internet connection is.

Aventiv (www.aventiv.com), a managed-service provider of Internet-based, professional file sharing and synchronization solutions, has launched its latest NomaDesk 2.5 release. With this release the company introduces a brand-new tiered “virtual fileserver” offering. Following the firm’s philosophy that storage size or bandwidth should never impose limits, NomaDesk users can choose between fileserver types to share and synchronize documents based on how they work, not on how much data or bandwidth they consume.

* The TEAM fileserver enables you to share documents that can be edited by anyone in your network —whether inside or outside your organization and includes workflow tools.
* The PUBLIC fileserver delivers all of the features of the TEAM version, except only the owner can make changes to the files on the fileserver. As a rich media publication system, the PUBLIC fileserver lets you invite an unlimited number of guests who can access the virtual fileserver’s rich content as read-only.
* The PERSONAL fileserver automatically synchronizes the owner’s private files on up to five different PCs. Like a secure and encrypted “private drive” that also includes instant backup and ensures that any file changes you make at work, will also be available to you when you get home, or even when you open your laptop on the plane.

Each new NomaDesk user automatically receives a free PERSONAL and PUBLIC fileserver. Any other fileserver, including the comprehensive TEAM fileserver, can be added for free for an indefinite period.

“The release of NomaDesk 2.5 marks the beginning of a new application platform that will allow us to launch even more exciting business features for the digital nomads. The indefinite free trial helps us better understand their specific needs. So, we are gathering feedback for now”, says the company’s chief executive Filip Tack.

NomaDesk uses a unique distributed file system (DFS) technology where files are replicated between the server and the client as changes occur. Fileservers show up in the Windows environment as disk-drives. Within minutes of downloading the NomaDesk (thin) client, users can actively synchronize files between computers or collaborate with other teammates. NomaDesk clients are being developed for Mac and Linux.

NomaDesk is available in extended trial and can be downloaded at www.NomaDesk.com. More information on NomaDesk and Aventiv can be obtained at info@nomadesk.com or toll free at +1 800-409-3830.
