Being on the JAX conference (Java, Apache,
XML, but also Eclipse, SOA, Web 2.0, Spring, ...) for some days, I feel
the urgent compulsion to full-quote Alan
Lepofsky's posting here:
"Introducing a revolutionary software platform that allows content to be automatically synchronized between multiple machines, even across multiple operating systems including Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, and several Linux distributions.
LND provides a platform for collaborative
applications, messaging, blogging, directory services, and a web server
all in one convenient, easy to install package. And a worldwide LND
business partner community, and open source community, provides thousands
of additional applications and services.
The LND client is built on top of the open Eclipse platform, allowing for endless possibilities in customization and enhancements. In addition to the LND client, users can also access the LND server using today's popular web browsers including Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.
What if you have employees who don't all work at the same office? No problem! LND allows people to work remotely, and even access applications and information while off-line or disconnected. When they reconnect to the network, any changes are automatically sent to the LND server, and new changes made by others will be synchronized to your machine. Now the hotel, the airport, ever the local coffee shop can be your office!
Speaking of being mobile, you can access LND features from a huge variety of mobile devices.
But does that raise security concerns? Of course not! LND enables information to be secured seamlessly with built in encryption, both while data is being synchronized, as well as when it is stored.
Speaking of storage, free your content from the confines of your employee's personal machines, and instead centrally store your information "in the cloud". (it's all the rage!) LND supports storage in either your company's own datacenter, or hosted by an application service provider.
What about controlling access? Well, LND allows you to easily manage who can read or edit content. Access control can be enforced at either at the application level, or down to the individual fields on a document!
Finally, the LND client and server are available for companies of any size, from the smallest businesses to the world's largest enterprises.
But wait, that is not all! LND also provides built in instant messaging, central storage/management for file attachments, and a full suite of spreadsheet, document, and presentation software supporting open industry standards. All at no extra charge.
Sound too good to be true? Well it is not, and it is available today. Act now! "
