DriveHQ Cloud IT Solution is now at version 5.2! Our service is generations ahead of our competitors'.
WebDAV drive mapping is the easiest way of accessing cloud-based storage. DriveHQ has offered regular WebDAV service for many years as part of our Cloud IT service.
However, any regular WebDAV drive is inherently not robust over the Internet. This cannot be fixed because it uses Windows Explorer as the client software.
Our new Enterprise WebDAV Solution is better than any other regular WebDAV solutions based on Apache, IIS or Share Point Server. It is designed
for businesses to migrate their in-house file servers and share point servers to our cloud service. Enterprise WebDAV Solution is available to paid members only.
DriveHQ has launched a new Camera FTP Service optimized for security cameras. Not only it offers offsite storage for cameras,
but also it supports remote play back and remote real-time monitoring.
Today, network based security cameras are no longer expensive or complicated. By utilizing low-cost network cameras and Camera FTP service, consumers and businesses can enjoy better
service than traditional CCTV security systems at a much lower cost.
Camera FTP service is available at www.CameraFTP.com. The price starts at only $1.5/month/per camera. Current DriveHQ members must sign up a new account
on www.cameraftp.com to use the camera FTP service. You must use a different username and email address to sign up.
DriveHQ has supported iOS, Android and other mobile platforms for several years. Users can use DriveHQ.com, m.drivehq.com, FTP or WebDAV
to access DriveHQ cloud services. Now we have launched DriveHQ File Manager mobile applications for iOS and Android. The new software
greatly improves our user experience on those platforms. It is not only better than FTP and WebDAV software, but also better than other
cloud storage applications. DriveHQ File Manager is free. You can download it from Apple's App Store or Google's App Market.
DriveHQ had the most powerful sharing feature. You could share different folders to different users with different permissions.
With the new Drop Box Folder feature, it is even more powerful: Anybody can upload files to you without having to sign up or log on.
Files uploaded to a drop box can only be accessed by you.
DriveHQ's Drop Box Folder feature is very different from other drop box services. Not only it is extremely easy, but also it is
designed to meet the most demanding business requirements, e.g.: thousands of users can upload files to your drop box; uploaded
files are grouped into sub-folders along with uploader name and other information; automatic file-upload notification;
multiple drop boxes for different groups of users, etc.
For quite a long time, we have relied on standard protocols and softwares such as web browser, FTP, Email and WebDAV to support MAC users. We also
launched a backup program for MAC using FTP. Finally, we have added native support for MAC users with the new release of DriveHQ FileManager
and DriveHQ Online Backup for Mac. You can download DriveHQ software for MAC from our software download page.
Many businesses and homes have surveillance cameras / security cameras. Such cameras usually save recorded images / videos to a local tape or disk.
If the tape or disk is destroyed by an intruder, then you lose all the evidences. Many people have realized the problem. We had thousands of
customers using DriveHQ FTP service for their security cameras' offsite storage. Because a security camera can automatically upload images to DriveHQ FTP server every
few seconds, it creates 100 times more load than a real person. In the past, our service is not friendly to security camera users. With our latest
release of Camera FTP service, we have dramatically improved our FTP service performance for cameras. Users can also automatically
delete files older than certain days.
Cloud computing is hot, the competition is also fierce. Instead of creating your own service, which could easily take years of time
and cost millions of dollars, you can "acquire" all DriveHQ technologies, products, customer support and datacenter facility
for only a few hundred dollars per year! You can re-brand the service as your own service. With the revenue-sharing model,
there is almost zero chance of losing money, and your profit margin can be much higher than if you launch your own service. For

Under the hood, DriveHQ Online Backup has changed to a new inter-process communication model between the Backup GUI program and the Backup service program. In a future version, DriveHQ Online Backup GUI program will be able to run from a different computer to remotely control backup tasks on this computer.

DriveHQ Online Storage has much more features than other online storage services. It is far more than just storage,
it is about top quality features and client software. It supports all modern web browsers and FTP client software;
it also has a native client program: DriveHQ FileManager. It is seamlessly integrated with DriveHQ Cloud IT system.
You can map DriveHQ online storage as a network drive, such as Z: drive. No software needs to be installed. It is extremely simple.

Almost all platforms support FTP. FTP is efficient, reliable and easy-to-use. It can be used to transfer very large files / folders.
DriveHQ offers standard FTP features plus more advanced features at a very low cost.
To setup, configure and secure an FTP server is never easy. FTP server may pose serious security threat as you must open a lot
of network ports; managing FTP accounts and set permission is also a headache. DriveHQ FTP server saves you time and money,
you can set it up in just a few minutes.

DriveHQ Online Backup can replace your local backup solution. You can setup real-time backup tasks and scheduled backup tasks.
It has a lot of features, such as incremental backup, backup locked files, file versioning, backup multiple PCs, backup servers, etc.
You might have a very good backup solution in-house. However, in-house backup is inherently less secure / reliable than offsite backup.
In case of major disasters, such as fire, flood, theft, virus, etc. both the source files and the backup files can be
destroyed as they are in the same location. Offsite backup keeps your backup data in a different location, thus it is far more reliable.
You can backup emails using either DriveHQ Online Backup or DriveHQ EmailManager. Using DriveHQ online backup,
you can backup the entire Outlook PST files or other email data folder.
Using DriveHQ EmailManager, it is far more efficient as it can incrementally backup emails and contacts one by one and
it only backs up new emails.
In-house backup such as tape backup is not flexible. You can only backup your data when you are in the same location.
DriveHQ Online Backup is different. You can backup / restore your files & folders from any remote locations.
No backup device or media is required.
You can automatically backup servers and databases in your company; employees can also backup their PCs, laptops and MACs.
Using DriveHQ group account service, you can allocate storage space and download bytes to your sub-users.
All sub-users are treated as premium users. They can access backed-up files online from anywhere.
Email service is very important to any business. There are a lot of free email hosting services; however, for business,
you need something better. You don't have to pay a lot to setup Exchange server or limit yourself to webmail only.
DriveHQ email service is designed for SMBs. It supports SMTP/POP3/IMAP4/webmail and custom domain. You can also create group accounts.
SMTP is the standard protocol for sending emails; POP and IMAP are the standard protocols for retrieving emails.
Most email client software (incl. Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express) supports SMTP, POP and IMAP. POP3 is usually
used for downloading emails to local; IMAP can keep all emails on server and automatically sync local and remote email boxes.
DriveHQ email server supports all 3 protocols.
DriveHQ email server supports SMTP,POP3 & IMAP4; it also supports SSL. It has advanced features such as: Auto Reply, Auto Forward,
Mailing List, etc. It supports custom email domains and group account service. You can easily manage your email accounts online.

Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile, etc. Emails can be kept on server so that you can download emails
from multiple computers / devices. Using IMAP, you can also sync your local and remote emails.
You can use DriveHQ Online Backup to backup emails. However, if you use Outlook / Outlook Express, then using DriveHQ EmailManager client
software is much more efficient. You can drag-n-drop upload / download emails and contacts; you can setup automatic backup
tasks to backup your emails and contacts to DriveHQ webmail.
DriveHQ offers a lot of high-end business features, such as Group Account service, custom domain web / email / FTP hosting,
