Connected Systems Chilled Out Blog Hanging stuff together in a meaningful way with some fun added

I have been messing around with a number of the MS initial cloud offerings, not the Azure stuff but offerings that are ‘real today’.

So in no particular order:

Skydrive: 25GB of free online storage

Live Mesh: Sync, share and Access files across multiple devices – 5GB of online storage

Live Sync: Sync, share and Access files across Windows. MAC, Linux systems – no storage

So putting it simply: if you want to have ‘in the cloud’ storage use Skydrive, if you simply want to sync files across machines use Live Sync and if you want to have a copy in the cloud of what you sync then Live Mesh is for you.

For me, I use all three!!!
