Since cloud computing has gained pace, cloud storage has taken a prominent place in online storage market. Today dozens of online storage services are using cloud storage technology, with some of them even providing API to access their cloud. Although you can access these services through regular web interface, there are other convenient methods that seamlessly integrate your cloud storage with your desktop file system. This way, end users can easily manage all of their cloud storage from a centralized location through a single application. This not only saves times but also help you batter manage the space across different services. Another advantage of using such application is that you can easily sync your local data with these services from a single window. Today, we're going to see a useful and powerful cloud storage management application that will enable you to easily use your entire cloud storage from a central location on your desktop and that too with ease through a user friendly and soothing interface.

One such system is Gladinet Cloud Desktop that brings dozens of popular cloud storage services right to your desktop. There are two versions - free and pro. I've found free version has enough features for casual users and works very well on all popular windows operating systems.

Cloud storage integrated with desktop
Gladinet uses the API provided by popular cloud storage services and integrate your account as virtual network drive on your system. This way you can access your online storage like a normal local hard drive through regular windows explorer. Gladinet uses strong encryption to protect all your login credentials to prevent any abuse.

You can either start it manually or can set it to automatically start with boot. I prefer the latter, as it automatically connects and map all cloud services as virtual drives ready for use. Although it can integrate over a dozen cloud storage services, I use it for 3 popular services.
  • Amazon Cloud Drive
  • Windows SkyDrive

If you want incremental backups, file versioning and want to enable auto-synchronization, you must upgrade to pro version to activate all these premium features. But most of the normal users can do well with the free version. The interface is clean and user-friendly such that even technically challenged users can map their storage accounts with ease. So go ahead and grab this amazing free tool to bring your cloud storage right on your desktop.
