Why use iBox and not a cloud app?
Although cloud hosting continues to be on the rise, many people wish that they didn’t have to store their personal, private or business data on “someone else’s” server in order to access it. Syncing local data with cloud services also presents various logistical issues. When users change local data, cloud syncing doesn’t always happen instantly, causing duplication of efforts, confusion and sometimes even loss of data. Cloud service companies give away a limited amount of free space and then up-sell their customers to pay hefty monthly fees in order to use the hard drive space the customer truly needs.
iBox enables a direct connection to your computer – without a third party intermediary. No syncing issues – ever. No monthly storage fees for “additional space” – ever. The only limitation to hard drive space is the actual size of your hard drive.
Can a customer use iBox and also use other applications that provide remote file access?
Yes. The use of one does not preclude the use of any others.
Do I have to do anything special on my computer in order to connect?
After installing the application on the user’s computer(s) and going through the configuration setup process, the only thing the user has to do is leave the desired computer on and connected to the Internet.
