Collaboration software vendor Open-Xchange added cloud storage to its offerings to allow users to sync files, folders, documents and pictures.

The company's new OX Drive will be available fully integrated with OX App Suite, a browser-based productivity suite that provides tools for managing email documents, calendar and social network feeds, it said Wednesday. The cloud storage will soon also be available as stand-alone product, it added.

OX Drive will offer file syncing and collaboration features, both in-browser and with native applications available for Android, iOS, Windows 7/8 and OS X devices, Open-Xchange said.

Users will be able to view, edit and share their documents and pictures anytime, anyplace, it said. Document editing will be possible in combination with its in-browser word processing tool with editing capabilities, called OX Text, that can also be integrated with App Suite.

Open-Xchange offers its services to service providers like ISPs, hosting providers, telecom operators and system integrators, who can offer it to their customers in turn under their own brand, the company said.

By adding OX Drive to its offerings, Open-Xchange wants to enable service providers to meet customer demand for creating and sharing files across multiple devices and operating systems, it said. Open-Xchange's services are also meant to give service providers a chance to compete with offerings from the likes of Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft, it added.

Open-Xchange in Nuremberg, Germany, received a US$20 million investment last July that it is using to speed up feature rollouts for its Web-based office suite.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
