ZeroPC, 'Transferable, Lifetime Desktop In The Cloud,' Debuts Globally And At Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco

ZeroDesktop, Inc., provider of next-generation Web Desktop solutions, today announced its global launch of ZeroPC, a revolutionary cloud-based "transferable, lifetime Web desktop" that empowers consumers, schools and business users to securely move their full desktop experience online using any browser and Web-enabled device. ZeroPC provides the most comprehensive and functional desktop in the cloud with its rich combination of supported Web apps, local apps and native apps ranging from productivity tools to collaboration to social networks. ZeroPC users only pay for what they use, and there are no subscriptions required or software to install.

Using ZeroPC as a virtual desktop with an advanced central repository for all of their content, users have confidence that they are always connected to their valuable files, documents, photos, videos and other content wherever they go and from any device.

"In our Internet-connected world, we all have digital content and applications that have become scattered across multiple devices and websites with too many logins to remember," said Young Song, CEO of ZeroDesktop, Inc. "Cloud computing is becoming a vital part of everyday life, and ZeroPC makes it easy to not only consolidate your documents, photos and other personal or business files, but for sharing your virtual desktop and collaborating with others online. We are pleased to provide the complete ZeroPC service to customers in Asia and Europe, as well as the USA."

Unified Content. ZeroPC users can easily unify, consolidate and manage all of their digital content into one secure place for accessing and sharing between people using any browser and any Web-enabled device. ZeroPC doesn't require learning any additional programs in order to organize and un-scatter content. It utilizes familiar user interfaces to a Windows-like environment with multi-windowing, "drag & drop," right click, icons, themes, start menus and shortcuts.

Deep integration with popular Web services. The accounts manager utilizes a single sign-in to automatically access Facebook, Flickr and Twitter, and Web storage providers including Google Docs, and SugarSync. Familiar "drag & drop" processes facilitate copying and pasting content from one service to another without opening separate browsers. Facebook enthusiasts can browse all of their friends' photo albums using a single click.
Transferable Desktop Makes Sharing Content Easy. With a few simple clicks, users can easily select any content they want to share, customize their virtual desktop "look and feel," and then publish the desktop to share with anyone. The designated friend or colleague will receive a secure URL to instantly log in using any browser, and will gain full access to content and desktop applications in the shared desktop. Users can specify any desired duration for sharing their desktop content - up to a few days to weeks for collaboration on group projects, a few months for clubs/organizations, or indefinitely for sharing with friends or family. Unlike other services, ZeroPC will automatically disable sharing after the publishing period expires without the need to manually delete files or remove user access.
