Managing your Files in the Cloud Made Simple with Otixo

I find that I have files stored in a number of places these days, Google Docs, Dropbox, Amazon S3, box, and Picasa to name a few.  A while back I came across Otixo which allows me to access all of them in one place, and move files between the services all from one dashboard.  Here is how Otixo explains their service:

(wouldn’t it be nice to see IBM Connections Files, and IBM Smart Cloud on their list of supported services?)

Otixo also supports WebDAV access to your account, allowing you to see all your configured services as a mapped drive in Windows, great for uploading or moving files between services.

Otixo has free and paid plans the only difference between the two being monthly bandwidth limits.

    I always try to find the one that meets my needs to most and stick with it so that I don’t have to hunt for files across a bunch of services. Otixo may change that for me. I like the WebDAV features, a big plus. Nice find Mitch! Though I was hoping for a catchier name like DropBox or

    Sounds a bit like GoodReader which also does WebDav – how is Otixo different?

      Rob I am a big fan of GoodReader, but it is iOS only (I wish they would come out with an Android version), Otixo works on a PC (or Mac) and makes it really easy to upload files to cloud services, and to move between cloud services (as well as some beta features around sharing).

      You have given me an idea to combine the two though, use WebDAV to point GoodReader at Otixo and only need to maintain once connection in GoodReader instead of many. I guess the two services can compliment each other nicely.

    Make sure you let the Otixo team know. Blogsy added support for IBM Connections after they received requests from their end users to support it 😉

    BTW. Just saw that the IBM Connections Desktop Plug-ins for Microsoft Windows shipped today. Free download available on Greenhouse here.

    I’ve been using and it makes working with Connections Files very easy from Windows Explorer

      The Connections Desktop Plugin is installed, and is nice piece of work, definitely adds value to Files. How great would it be to be able to consume those files in GoodReader, Otixo, etc.

    It looks an awful lot like a “lite” version of a service I’m already using, SMEStorage. It supports a gazillion clouds (around 40 I think) and is pretty neat for adding WebDav, Cloud FTP, and and S3 API above all of them.

    I’m actually using it at work with the IBM Smart Cloud but we have their Cloud Appliance (which sits in our rack running as a VMWare image).

    Personally I’m using their WebDav service to enable editing my Google Docs, and Zimbra briefcase files in iWork on the iPad. A tip: They advertise the WebDav service for $5 (one time fee) from the site but if you buy their iOS App (which is $4.99) you get it added for free.
