Use the Web as your File Sharing Hub with Microsoft Live Mesh

Live_meshMicrosoft recently unveiled a tech preview of its Live Mesh service. Have all your devices—PCs, and soon Macs and mobile phones—working together to give you anywhere access to the information you care about.

A clear example of a "cloud service", Microsoft believes in "cloud computing".  Live Mesh synchronizes and shares data across multiple machines — currently that means Windows PCs, but look for Windows Mobile as well as Mac OS X support to be added later this year. Mesh offers one-click sharing for desktop folders, remote desktop connections, web-based file access and a news feed to keep track of it all. Eventually Microsoft would like to add Xbox, DVR and other devices to the list of syncing/sharing possibilities.

In his first Channel9 interview, Ray Ozzie, Microsoft's Chief Software Architect talks about Live Mesh, a new technology and platform that enables synchronization and storage "to the cloud." You'll hear about the history of Live Mesh, how it has been influenced by Ray's previous work on products like Groove (more to come on Groove on this blog ...).

Key elements for Live Mesh are:

  • All your devices working together
  • Access from anywhere
  • Simple to share
  • Stay informed

Notice that this is quite a change for Microsoft and represents a significant step away from the desktop. Eventually Microsoft hopes, as Ozzie says, that “social mesh notions of linking, sharing, ranking and tagging will become as familiar as File, Edit and View.”
