Funambol xCloud Makes One-Stop Personal Clouds a Reality

Centralizes Consumer Content for Easy Access, Backup and Sharing

FOSTER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2015) - Funambol, the leader of white-label personal and business clouds for mobile providers, today introduced OneMediaHub v15 with xCloud, a new release that automatically centralizes a user's pictures, videos and files from multiple devices, social networks and cloud drives. xCloud simplifies the digital lives of consumers by securing their rich media and personal data in one place, making it easy to access and share across devices. OneMediaHub v15 enables mobile providers to offer a branded, differentiated and multi-ecosystem personal cloud service to compete against over-the-top (OTT) services and to increase revenue and customer loyalty.

"Personal content resides in many places, including multiple devices and online sites, making it difficult to access and manage," said Amit Chawla, Funambol CEO. "Funambol xCloud is the next big thing in personal clouds -- it simplifies one's digital life by centralizing content for easy access, safekeeping and sharing."

Many people use multiple devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and wearables. At the same time, personal data increasingly resides in social networks, media sites and cloud drives. This results in more islands of personal data. As time goes on, personal content fragments into a 'splinternet' that is difficult to access, secure and appropriately share. OneMediaHub v15 works with popular devices and internet services, such as Facebook, Instagram and Dropbox. This provides users with a one-stop personal cloud for important digital content, regardless of where it is stored -- hence the name, OneMediaHub. It lets users access their digital life via any mobile or connected device, including TVs and cars.

OneMediaHub enables mobile providers to extend their brand in the fast growing personal cloud market. Many mobile operators have deployed a white-label personal cloud solution to compete against OTT services. OneMediaHub positions a mobile provider as the trusted steward of people's digital content by auto-aggregating it from common sources. OneMediaHub v15 with xCloud and the recently added Family Hub extend Funambol's lead as the best-in-class consumer cloud. It enables operators to add value to OTT cloud drives, device clouds and social networks, while generating revenue and increasing stickiness.

OneMediaHub v15 includes numerous enhancements in addition to xCloud such as:

  • Live albums: users can share live albums of photos & videos, and sets of files -- for example, photos that a user adds to an album are visible to people with access to it
  • Dynamic first user experience: mobile apps can display customer-designed intro screens, to optimize user flows, company branding and marketing, via dynamic microsites
  • Deep mobile analytics: mobile apps are further instrumented with real-time analytics, allowing insight into ongoing service utilization and enabling personalized user guidance
  • This Device: a mobile app mini-dashboard encourages users to secure more content in their cloud

OneMediaHub v15 is now generally available (GA). It can be tried on the demo site.
