- New app protects personal data while making documents, videos, and music available across desktop and mobile devices -

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Access media files from any location while enjoying the security, privacy and unlimited storage of a personal server with Tonido. Developed by CodeLathe, the leader in personal cloud software and services, Tonido lets individuals watch videos, listen to music, see photos and open documents that are stored on their computer right from their mobile iOS device. Users can now share their personal media without worrying about the privacy and security of their data.

"The Tonido iPhone/iPad app is the result of a development team that strived to bring users an enhanced experience through pleasing aesthetics and effortless remote access and sharing. It is extremely simple to use and is perhaps one of the most functional and beautiful apps on the iTunes App Store. Tonido also supports a wide range of video and audio formats including MKV and FLAC. It is a must have app for anybody who has a large digital media collection," said Anis Abdul, CTO of CodeLathe.

Tonido offers users secure access to their home computer's entire collection of documents, photos, music and videos from anywhere without having to upload it to a public cloud service. Individuals begin by downloading the free Tonido server app on their desktop and the free mobile app onto their iOS device. Employing smart LAN switching technology to use gigabit access speed within home LAN networks, the app safely connects users to the documents stored on their desktop in seconds. Users can also access their files via WiFi or 3G mobile networks, backup their photos and videos from their iPhone/iPad to their Tonido personal cloud, and download files for offline viewing.

"More than ever, customers are realizing that their personal data is no longer safe and secure in popular online services and they're turning towards personal cloud services like Tonido for their remote access and sharing needs. Increasingly, leading public cloud services are using user's personal data stored in their servers as a new source of income. These aggressive monetization efforts put the integrity of personal data at grave risk. In truth, there is no guarantee on privacy of personal data once it leaves an individual's device or computer. Thankfully, customers have an alternative choice in Tonido, one that provides easy access to their personal data from any iOS device, just like a public cloud, but without sacrificing the data ownership," said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of CodeLathe.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.
