Scalability, updating and restrictions are the common pitfalls of traditional software-based operating systems. But our world has now entered a new era where collaboration is expected, software is free and hardware is inexpensive. Jolicloud takes your everyday netbook and turns it into a powerful web device that connects into the cloud and provides free, open and easy access to web applications.
“Traditional operating systems find their roots in the late seventies and are built around software. But today, 90% of our computing life is on the Web. Jolicloud was built with Web users in mind,” said Jolicloud founder and CEO Tariq Krim. “This is a project of passion. To make the largest impact, we decided to surround ourselves with people who have real experience in achieving large-scale disruption.”
As an internet OS for netbooks, Jolicloud accelerates the opportunity to utilize “ultra-low-cost”, cloud-based computing to everyone. With its technology, you will be able to manage all your web applications, files and services in one place. And as a portable online desktop, you’ll be able to take your cloud and manage your cloud on any device you choose. Jolicloud is currently in beta, but could be a new force in personal cloud-computing through its thoughtful problem solving and slick interface design.
