Ubuntu One

Full Description: 

Ubuntu One is a storage application that allows users to save personal content (e.g., music, documents, presentations, photos, etc.) into a digital cloud.   Ubuntu One provides users the opportunity to access their files anytime, anywhere.  Users are not required to download the application to access their files.  In fact, personal documents can be saved and accessed directly to the Ubuntu One Website (https://one.ubuntu.com/).  For those that wish to download the application, Ubuntu One is available on various devices (e.g., computers, smartphones, iPads, etc.) and across various platforms (e.g., windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Ubuntu, etc.).  Files stored using Ubuntu One can also be shared with peers, family, and friends.  To do so, users can simply grant access to particular folders in their storage cloud.  Individuals have complete controls over who is able to view specific documents and files - thus making sharing documents easier than ever!  Individuals will also have piece of mind to know that their documents are stored in a digital location.  If ever your device would break, get lost, or stolen, it’s comforting to know that all of your documents, are still accessible via Ubuntu One.  One of the biggest selling points of Ubuntu One compared to other storage clouds such as Dropbox is the amount of space they provide for you… for free!  Rather than the conventional 2 GB of storage, Ubuntu One gives more than double... 5 GB!
