Gladinet Delivers Web Applications and Online Files To Your Desktop

Gladinet is an interesting yet free Windows application that runs on your desktop and offers easy access to files stored online or across remote PCs.

If you have a some content stored in online services like  Google DocsAmazon S3 and Windows Live Skydrive , Gladinet allows you to manage your content by making all of your files accessible from a virtual drive mapped into your Windows Operating Environment, thereby letting you update and modify files stored on the above mentioned services.

Once you have updated those files, Gladinet uploads the new version back to its original space in the cloud. This therefore elimiates the need for downloading the files onto your computer, editing them and again pushing them back onto the internet cloud for storage.

Other than letting you manage your online files locally, Gladinet also lets you do the following interesting stuff

  • Remote Access To Multiple PCs : Gladinet connects all your PCs together. You can access folders on multiple PCs from any one of them. You can also use remote access solutions such as RDP or VNC among them. Your PCs are always connected even when you are on the road.
  • On Demand Sharing: Sharing Files and Folders is as easy as sending an e-mail or an instant message. Your friends can view your shared files instantly and securely without any Gladinet software pre-installed. You can share both local and online files.
  • Use Web Applications Locally: Use online office to open local spread sheets. Use Paint Brush to open online images. Use online storages as if they were local folders. Gladinet software delivers web applications and online storages to your desktop.

So How Does It All Work?

Its easier to understand it like this, Browser’s are designed for delivering web contents to your desktop and 
on similar lines, Gladinet was designed for delivering web services to your desktop. It then goes a step further than the web browser by integrating web services into the Operating System. The below given figure explains the entire process.
