London, United Kingdom, June 15, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Vehera LTD , who trade as SMEStorage, todayannounced that over 50,000 users are now using theirCloudDavfeature, which adds WebDav over anystorage Cloud, to edit documents on the iPad and iPhone from iWork and other WebDav ready documentediting Apps.CEO Ian Osborne said, "Many iOS Apps may not directly support Storage Clouds such DropBox,BaseCamp, Amazon S3, Google Drive, SkyDrive, RackSpace etc, but do provide support for WebDavaccess. Apple's own iWork App which encompasses Pages, Numbers and Keynote is classic example of this.""This prevents users from directly opening, editing and saving their documents using these tools. WhatCloudDav does is add a WebDav protocol adaptor to these Clouds so users can directly edit and interactwith them using Apps that provide support for WebDav, such as iWork.""Also, If users have many different cloud accounts, they don't need to log into ten different servers, orcreate 10 different profiles, to access and manage or edit files, it can be done by simply switchingdirectory when logging into the SME Cloud File System, which federates access to over 35 StorageClouds."Osborne finished by saying, "CloudDav is just one of the protocol adaptors we support. We also addsupport forFTPand the Amazon S3 protocol above any Storage Clouds, whether it is natively supportedor not. Also, due to the ability we have to federate Clouds, we can provide a nice capability for users to beable to nominate a backup cloud to a primary cloud for direct Cloud to Cloud backups.
