Lenovo is making it easier for its customers to access the “cloud.”
The world’s No. 2 PC maker said Tuesday it is working with SugarSync to add cloud computing access and syncing capability to its ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops and Android tablets outside of China in April.
Current Lenovo product owners can download the Lenovo Cloud Storage by SugarSync now. It also works with competitors’ products, according to Lenovo.
The package includes 5 gigabytes of free space for the auto-syncing of files, photos and other information. Larger amounts of space are available for an additional fee.
“Unlike other cloud storage services, Lenovo Cloud Storage by SugarSync not only works with Lenovo products but also with Internet-based products from other manufacturers across a broad array of devices, including laptops, smartphones and tablets and across all major operating systems,” Lenovo said in its announcement. “Additionally, the service offers time-saving and security features such as group collaboration, social network sharing and data encryption.”
SugarSync is a free service for the access, syncing and sharing of data across computers and mobile devices.
