Jolidrive: It’s not what you think

I just received an email about Jolidrive, a new offering from Jolicloud, a technology outfit based in Paris, France. As you can tell from the name, Jolicloud has something to do with cloud computing.

It started life as a provider of Joli OS, a kinda (Linux) distribution for the cloud. I signed up when it was launched just to see what it had to offer, but was not very impressed. I like most or all my computing to be done locally. But that’s another story.

Back to Jolidrive. Just going by the name, the image that came to mind was of a cloud storage service just like Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, 2Safe.com or any of the other online and cloud storage services. But that’s not what Jolidrive is.

Jolidrive is not a standalone service, but rather, an interface that makes it easy to access all those Cloud storage services. In other words, it’s a service interface to other services. A Cloud storage middleman, if you will. This screen shot shows some of the cloud storage services you can access from Jolidrive.

I think Jolidrive is a good service, but I’m not a big fan of such services. Not that I don’t use them, just that I don’t rely heavily on them. Existing users may sign on to the service at Jolidrive.com. Prospective users can sign-up for free. Below is an introductory video to the service. If you already use Joli OS, Jolidrive comes pre-installed.

  1. This is not available in android market. Any Suggestion please ?

  2. I don’t see the word “review” anywhere in the article, and the author gives no indication that it is one, so how come you guys think this is a review is beyond me.

    It’s more like, hey guys, “see what I’ve found.”

  3. Ditto. Pointless review. I’m dumber for having read it.

  4. this is an absolutely awful review. You don’t like jolicloud because “I think Jolidrive is a good service, but I’m not a big fan of such services.”

    thats fucking great. you really offered me some insight with that analysis of a product.

    this was a waste of my time.
