New level cloud computing: icloud
As cloud computing is not quite new, still there is some nice stuff to share with you.
Last week I was informed about icloud, a product of Xcerion.
Xcerion delivers software and OS as a Service trough your web browser.
A quote from www.icloud.com:
“icloud consist of a desktop with applications and files that you run through your web browser.
Because it’s running in the cloud (the internet) it can offer you impressive features such as easy sharing, rich collaboration, built-in marketplace with free applications, seamless integration with your mobile device, and innovative drag-and-drop blog publishing.”
icloud is 100% committed to providing you with an exciting, reliable, and productive computing experience.
- Free applications like an office suite
- Secure, backuped file storage
- All friends, documents and applications in the cloud
- Sharing and collaboration in real-time

The virtual desktop provides a Windows Vista-like layout and gives you the freedom to change several things like:
- Desktop wallpaper
