Use EMC Atmos for File Synchronization

EMC Atmos is a cloud storage infrastructure. Atmos can be used by telecom service providers as an in-data-center cloud storage infrastructure. Atmos can also be used by private companies as an on-premise cloud storage. Its use case is as wide as you can imaging with any cloud storage services.
One of the popular use case of cloud storage is to use it for file synchronization purpose. The basic setup is that you have multiple PCs.  You can sync a special folder from one PC to the other PCs and vise versa. This article will go over the steps to get it done.

Step 1 – Download and Install Gladinet Cloud Desktop

Gladinet Cloud Desktop version 3 release includes a Cloud Sync Folder feature. You can make any of your local folder a Cloud Sync Folder and associate that with your EMC Atmos account. Once it is associated with your account, the changes in the folder will be monitored and the content will be under version control in your EMC Atmos account.
