Default DataPod Keeps Your PCs In Sync

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href=',aid,114811,tk,dn021704X,00.asp' target='_blank'>,00.asp</a><br /><br /></div>"If you need to get work done on a PC when you're not at work, you could ask your company to install a Virtual Private Network. You also could run remote-control software. Or you could use DataPod--a new peer-to-peer system that an Israel-based startup is introducing here at Demo 2004. DataPod is due for launch in April; the product will list for $100, with an introductory price of $70.<br /><br />Targeted at business types with multiple PCs, DataPod syncs files, e-mail, and browser bookmarks between two or more PCs over the Internet. The software runs in the background on each system?-say, an office computer and a home one--transferring data on the fly via an SSL-encrypted peer-to-peer networking connection. For instance, when an e-mail message arrives on your work system, DataPod notices and automatically copies it to your home machine. The system also offers a browser-based interface, providing access to data from any Internet-connected PC."<br /><br />If you've always struggled with the task of keeping multiple PCs in sync, this article will interest you.

This sounds just like the fusionone service that has been around for years.

Yeah, I was going to say the same thing about FusionOne. Strange that on Data-Pod's Competitive Comparisons they don't compare with FusionOne.

FusionOne does more, synching Outlook databases as well. Unfortunately, their files sychronization has been unreliable, so I've stopped using it.

"on the fly" sounds good, but so does Activesync. I guess we'll have to see if it works as good as it says it does.

The file syncing also might be similar to Novell's iFolder -- intelligent updating of only changed file blocks, etc...
