This week, Microsoft launched an exciting element of our Software + Services Strategy, and a component of our cloud computing services. Live Mesh.
The announcement came in the form of a Technology preview. At a high level, Live Mesh is a platform; a software + services platform approach to synching, sharing, storing, and accessing files and folders from your devices on the web. It makes PCs and other devices aware of each other through the Internet, enabling individuals and organizations to manage, access, and share their files and applications seamlessly on the Web and across their world of devices.
