FOSTER CITY, Calif., March 13, 2012 -- Funambol, the leading provider of white-label personal cloud solutions for mobile providers, today announced its new OneMediaHub solution is generally available (GA). OneMediaHub enables mobile operators, device makers and other providers to offer a branded digital locker service for millions of users. Other personal clouds tend to be simple file repositories, only support one brand of device, and require manual updates, rendering them useless for the realities of mobile and multiple brands of devices. In contrast, OneMediaHub makes the 'connected device' experience a reality by enabling providers to offer a personal cloud that automatically secures user data and content on diverse mobile devices and computers, syncs them across devices, and allows easy sharing.

"The cloud is becoming much more strategic for mobile communications, said Jagdish Rebello, PhD, director of communications & consumer research at IHS. The industry and users are increasingly interested in easy ways to wirelessly store diverse data and content in the cloud for access across multiple devices."
Personal clouds are reaching a tipping point with services from Apple, Google, Microsoft and others. However, these clouds have major deficiencies that prevent users from realizing the full connected device experience. OneMediaHub avoids these shortcomings by automatically securing, syncing and sharing user digital data and content on diverse devices via the cloud.
OneMediaHub is white-label, allowing providers to offer a personal cloud solution to its users while promoting their brand to increase customer loyalty. It supports a wide variety of smartphones, tablets and computers by numerous manufacturers and enables users to store their content on multiple devices in one cloud. Based on open source, this personal cloud solution is highly flexible and adaptable for specific needs, such as a particular type of mobile device, a regional social network, or market conditions that require monetization methods beyond storage which is rapidly becoming a commodity.
"OneMediaHub is the only personal cloud that lets users realize the full connected device experience, as it automatically secures, syncs and shares data and content across multiple vendor devices," said Amit Chawla, Funambol CEO. "Mobile operators, device makers and other providers now have a superior personal cloud solution to better retain users and develop new revenue streams."
