With the end of Apple’s iDisk & MobileMe, Mac Addicts are racing the clock for the perfect replacement solution

MIAMI, May 15, 2012 — / — While Apple’s iCloud arrival may have been music to the ears of many people, iDisk and MobileMe customers have been scrambling to find the perfect cloud solution replacement when the service officially shuts down on June 30, 2012.

In an effort to help MobileMe/iDisk customers find a Mac-friendly solution that works, Dolly Drive is inviting these customers to migrate over to its cloud service. With Dolly Drive, Mac addicts will discover a whole new level of cloud productivity solutions through its file syncing, sharing, storage, and online backup via Apple’s Time Machine.

By putting cloud functionality in one place, Dolly Drive offers more data protection and accessibility for Mac users than any other service on the market. Controlled by a single admin tool, Dolly Drive allows each user to personally customize the way they use Dolly cloud storage. Whether it’s to help four people in a home environment, or 40 plus people in a corporate environment, Dolly Drive keeps everyone’s data backed up and ready to access, anytime, anywhere.

“There are a lot of options available with regards to the cloud today, but users are cobbling together different services with hopes of designing a complete package for data storage, protection, and file syncing, and they’re finding it to be inefficient,” said Leigh Kessler, Head of Marketing, Dolly Drive. “Adding these programs and services often creates more work than necessary for computer users, and that’s counter to what people love about Apple.”

According to Kessler, while iCloud offers a lot of promise, there are a few drawbacks that iDisk and MobileMe users will be missing. iCloud doesn’t offer remote storage like Dolly Space for saving space on your hard drive. iCloud doesn’t sink multiple Mac computers, it only syncs Apple devices. And iCloud’s photo stream doesn’t allow you to manage albums and it only keeps picture files for 30 days. To save these files, you must do it manually. More importantly, while it backs up certain things, it doesn’t auto archive versions of all of your most important documents, meaning your iCloud stuff can be retrieved if you lose a device, but not all of the other things on your Mac.”

“While all of the concepts in services like Google Drive, iCloud and DropBox work great individually, Dolly Drive is truly the only application available on the market today that offers all of these services in one, affordable, easy-to-use admin tool,” Kessler said. “Dolly Drive is all of these concepts together in one package, and the best part is that the user has complete control of the entire process.”

Founded in January 2011, Dolly Drive provides Mac users with offsite cloud storage directly through Apple’s Time Machine application. The all-in-one-subscription service incorporates backup, file sync and storage capabilities all in one, easy-to-use application. In addition, Dolly allows users to create a bootable clone of their Mac on an external hard drive for local disaster recovery. The company’s new Dock Station NAS device allows business and consumers to run all of these features on their own private cloud.

Dolly Drive recently released a new app, iDolly, allowing subscribers to securely access files they have synced and stored using Dolly Sync and Space on their iPhones and iPads. The app is free and can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store. For more information, visit .
