After you have signed up with a beta account, you may want to access it from your Windows desktops and laptops. This article shows you how to quickly connect to Internap XIPCloud and do drag and drop transfer from Windows Explorer.

First you will need Gladinet Cloud Desktop. There will be 2 more follow on articles if your use case is from a file server (Gladinet Cloud AFS) or snapshot backup (Gladinet Cloud Backup).

For this article, the use case is focused on cloud storage usage from Desktop and Laptops.

After Gladinet Cloud Desktop is installed, you can mount Internap XIPCloud using the “OpenStack Storage” dropdown. Pretty soon, Gladinet will have Internap XIPCloud in the dropdown list. If you see Internap XIPCloud as an entry, you can use that entry instead.
