iPads, iPhones for Business: Try the Cloud

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — If you and your company are interested in
using iPads and iPhones instead of BlackBerrys or other devices on an
enterprise network, read on.

Little-known Oxygen Cloud, a beta-level online service that connects people, data and their devices within a company to a
single virtual file system, announced Nov. 3 that it will begin
providing similar support for large-scale enterprise migration to
private storage clouds. The announcement was made at the Cloud Expo 2010 here at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

That support includes users who prefer to deploy their personal devices
for business — and those can include the iPad and iPhone.

Oxygen Cloud provides native
desktop access to data stored in public and private clouds and makes
cloud storage directly available to business users. The Newark,
Calif.-based company has been focusing on small and medium-size
enterprises.

Oxygen Cloud also enables an enterprise to mix and match files and data
from multiple public clouds, as well as setting up its own private
cloud to meet specific business requirements, such as security,
reliability, geography, performance and cost.

Enterprise users currently can choose from such public cloud storage
providers as Amazon, Cloud Leverage, Rackspace, Iron Mountain and
Nirvanix.
