Map EMC Atmos Storage as a Local Drive

image
EMC Atmos Storage is great if you are a developer looking for a storage solution for your applications or if you are an enterprise that is willing to rewrite your applications to work with the new protocols for cloud storage. But what if you just want to access cloud storage from your desktop with your existing applications?

 
In that case, you need Gladinet Cloud Desktop. It provides a mapped network drive interface to Atmos Storage, making it accessible through a local drive.  This enables users to access and manage files in Atmos Storage exactly as they would if they were stored on their desktop. Gladinet Cloud Desktop also provides backup management services which make it easy to backup important files to Atmos Storage.

Map Atmos Storage


To map Atmos Storage, first launch the mounting wizard from the systray menu for Gladinet Cloud Desktop:
Mount-Systray-Item

This launches the wizard where you will select Atmos Storage from the drop down listbox on the first page:

Choose a name for the virtual directory. This is the name for the folder that will appear under “My Gladinet Drive (Z:)” on your desktop. Click next and enter your credentials:

Click next, verify the information and click Finish:
Mount-Finish
Now EMC Atmos Storage is attached to your local drive:

And you can transfer an entire drive to EMC Atmos Storage with a single drag and drop or double click on a document to edit it with a normal Windows application. Atmos Storage access doesn’t get any simpler than that!
