Lotus Symphony Runs off Keepod USB Storage Card

Nov 18, 2009

Italian firm NSEC is offering IBMs Open Office variant as a VMware ThinApp on a credit card sized USB device.

Lotus Symphony is yet another access point among the software that users of Keepod can load on their devices and on each computer without requiring installation. The Keepod is the size of a credit or business card, a scant 1.8 millimeters thick, and is attached via USB. It corresponds to USB storage media for various applications that users can run independent of the operating system. Its virtualized ThinApp applications start up as packaged executable files from the storage media and can be downloaded for free from Keepod's online store.

Keepod comes in the form of a business card sized USB device that provides VMware ThinApps that run independently of the operating system.

Keepod comes in memory capacities ranging from two to 16 GBytes in two versions. The more affordable Keepod Base costs from about $30 up to $90 at current rates. The Keepod Secure, with AES hardware encryption and password protection that should work with Linux, costs between $105 and $300 at current rates. So far Keepod ThinApps include Firefox, Thunderbird, the VLC Media Player and the microTorrent BitTorrent client. NSEC also provides Keepod Backup software at a cost of about $45. NSEC is located in Milano, Italy and is positioned as an IT security firm that belongs to the Orthophone group headquartered in Israel.
