Jolicloud Introduces Jolicloud 2, Your Digital Home On The Web

tariq-jolicloud-ecosystem-partyIt’s been five years already, and Jolicloud still has a few tricks up its sleeve. Yesterday, at an event called the Jolicloud Ecosystem Party, the company presented its long-term vision for the company. It also gave everyone a sneak peek at Jolicloud 2, a step forward in the company’s ultimate goal to build the only platform you need to simplify and centralize your life on the web. “I always considered Jolicloud as an incubator to experiment and start new projects,” co-founder and CEO Tariq Krim told me in an interview. “And today, we’re taking down our operating system. We are making a bet on HTML5, which is an open platform. Our vision is to make a personal cloud platform and to empower our users.” While Jolicloud already had a web platform, a second version is coming out in March. Users can expect multiple products around the same idea. The company wants to unify all your services and make everything works together. The first two products are Jolicloud Home and Jolicloud Drive. Chrome users will get more features, but Jolicloud will work in every browser. With Drive, you can connect your account with all your cloud storage services. Many people use separate services — for example Dropbox for your personal files, Google Drive for your documents and professional stuff, Box for your company, etc. You can unify all your accounts in a single interface. But you can also interact directly with your files. You can open a PDF, an MP3, a movie, an epub book and more. For example, let’s say that you use Dropbox camera upload on your phone. When you take a photo, it is automatically uploaded to Dropbox. You can open this photo in Jolicloud, add a filter, crop and edit without ever leaving the website. Then you can save to Dropbox or even save to another storage service. Similarly, you may want to move a big movie from your Dropbox to your Microsoft OneDrive account to free some space in your Dropbox. You can just drag the file to the OneDrive tab. Then, everything happens in the background — Jolicloud’s server will begin downloading the file from Dropbox and then upload it to OneDrive. You’ll have to pay $4.99 a month for this feature. With the pro version, you will also be able to connect multiple Google accounts (or multiple Dropbox accounts, etc.). The second service, Jolicloud
