Dell Makes the Cloud Personal with New Cloud Software for Windows RT Tablets, Apple iPad and PocketCloud Web
ROUND ROCK, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Dell (News - Alert) today is announcing enhancements to its Dell Wyse PocketCloud
app portfolio to help connect individuals with their professional and
personal content anytime, anywhere from mobile devices or remote
Explore and PocketCloud Web
provide a secure and fast way to remotely connect to users' PCs and Macs
from Android (News - Alert), iOS and Windows RT devices, including the Dell
XPS 10 tablet, or any Web browser, enabling users to access and
share any content.
Today, users are increasingly looking to gain access to their personal
and professional content on a number of different devices, sometimes
running on a variety of operating systems, and PocketCloud enables them
to easily create a "personal cloud" to search, view, organize, and share
content among mobile devices and computers. Documents, videos, photos,
music, and other files are readily available on tablets and smartphones
with PocketCloud Explore, or in a desktop browser with PocketCloud Web.
Today, Dell Wyse is announcing the availability of PocketCloud Explore
for iPad and Windows RT to provide users with additional choices for
remotely accessing their personal and professional content. The new
releases complement the existing versions of PocketCloud apps for iOS
and Android devices, which since their launches have had more than 3.7
million downloads and consistent 4 to 4.5 star ratings on both the Apple
App Store and Google (News - Alert) Play.
The company is also announcing the release of its PocketCloud Web app
and service, which brings all the features and benefits of the
PocketCloud Explore apps to anyWeb browser. Users can now utilize a
public computer and remotely access all the content - office files,
photos, videos and music - on their personal and professional computers
and stored in their own personal cloud. For multimedia content, users
can upload and download files between their devices and remote
computers, share content by streaming audio and video files from their
remote computers and open remote files through a viewer or download and
edit within a compatible local application.
Also, Dell is announcing PocketCloud Companion, the client broker for
Windows and Mac operating systems that provides access to content and
applications stored on remote computers. PocketCloud Companion will be
installed as standard on all Dell XPS and Dell Inspiron computers
shipped in North America starting Nov. 15, enabling users to easily
build their own personal cloud to remotely manage their content from
their smartphone and tablet device.
PocketCloud Explore for iPad and Window RT are available immediately as
free downloads in the Apple (News - Alert) App Store and Windows Store respectively.
Registration for PocketCloud Web is available at www.pocketcloud.com.
"I find PocketCloud invaluable when I am doing my rounds to see
patients," said Dr. Michael Klein, a pediatric physician at Middlesex
Hospital in Middletown, Conn. "Being able to get the applications and
information on my iPad when and where I need it helps me complete
routine charting in a fraction of the time. The additional mobility is
particularly helpful, because it means that I can go to where the
children are and update information on the fly rather than having to log
information or find a desktop to make amendments."
"Users require access to their digital assets at their fingertips
wherever they might be," said Tarkan Maner, vice president and general
manager, Cloud Client Computing at Dell. "With the larger and more
user-friendly interface available on tablet devices, users can do it
all, from sharing personal memories to editing professional documents.
Dell Wyse PocketCloud solutions make cloud computing less 'pie in the
sky,' and more 'palm of your hand,' as users are able to not only access
all their assets from their mobile devices, but also change, upload and
delete them at will."
"Dell continues down a path to capitalize on opportunities to address
the ever-increasing pressures of BYOD with new consumer solutions for
easy data access while also adhering to demands of IT to create secure
and manageable environments," said Stacy Crook, program manager, mobile
enterprise at IDC (News - Alert). "Dell's updated portfolio of PocketCloud services
enables consumers to easily access, view and share content across
personal clouds, within multiple operating environments, while providing
IT with a secure means of providing remote access to professional
