Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Advants, Inc., a national system of public Internet access
terminals, today announced that it has signed an agreement to add
the FreeDesk.com Virtual Office Suite, on-line storage and PC Share
to all Advants Internet terminals. PC Share, a FreeDesk exclusive,
allows the customer to access files on any Internet-connected PC,
bringing home and office data as close to the customer as the
nearest Advants public access Internet terminal."
"Internet users can simply go to any Advants terminal regardless
of their physical location and access their own files on the
FreeDesk Virtual Office Suite server or on any Internet-connected
PC, including their own home or business computer," said Greg
Johnson, president and CEO of Advants, Inc. "No laptop
required, and no need to search for that Internet plug-in. This
service will also introduce Linux to Advants users, a systems
operating platform we plan to feature in the near future."
"In addition, by teaming with Advants, FreeDesk.com's Virtual
Office is available to people that don't have an Internet
connection, or even a computer."
