Some time ago sone in the support forum was wondering if there was a virtual disk that could be formatted.
Well there are. But while looking in the Net, I ran into an other nice little cmd line tool called HTTPDisk
This tool is little does what it promisses and is easy to install.
These days "Cloud Computing" is a hot topic.
- Copy the driver (httpdisk.sys) to %systemroot%system32drivers.
- Optionally edit httpdisk.reg for automatic or manual start and number of devices.
- Import httpdisk.reg to the Registry.
-Use the program httpdisk.exe to mount and umount disk or CD images from a web server.
Well this comes very close to what it called "Cloud Storage" ?!
You can now share your data which might be located on a server anywhere in the world.
Cloud storage is a model of networked data storage where data is stored on multiple virtual servers,
generally hosted by third parties, rather than being hosted on dedicated servers.
Hosting companies operate large data centers; and people who require their data to be hosted buy or
lease storage capacity from them and use it for their storage needs. The data center operators,
in the background, virtualize the resources according to the requirements of the customer and expose them as virtual servers,
which the customers can themselves manage. Physically, the resource may span across multiple servers.
In some services, such as Nirvanix, the system may span multiple data centers or even continents.
(Only read only at the moment.)
The good thing is, it is HTTP based so it will go through most firewalls that allow port 80 trafic.
But you can also host the ISO image on a webserver, with a different port and it will work as well.
Well the last tool that comes in handy, is one that let you create ISO images from Folders on you disk.
This one will ISO Recorder.
Both tools together will give you the flexibility to get to your data where ever you are. No VPN connections needed.
Handy if you want to listen to your MP3's, read your AU3 Scripts, view some Video's, share some Files, etc.
PS : I couldn't give the background of the ICON's a different color. Anyone have an idea on this ?
