"We currently support Ubuntu and Debian and we are working on several other distributions. We feel that Linux is a key platform," remarked Gianluca Granero, Chief Technology Officer of Memopal. "Data protection," he continued, "is essential for anybody who uses a computer, no matter what operating system they use, including Linux. Memopal supports WebDav and Linux users can access their files from the web or by doing a simple 'mount'."

Gianluca Granero is the co-creator of MGFS, " the Memopal Global File System", a distributed architecture technology that can safely store information at a cost that makes online storage extremely affordable. The basic Memopal suite includes 150GB of storage for $49 a year.

Why choose Memopal? – It costs less than an external hard drive. – By purchasing a single license, Memopal can be used on more than one computer (PC, Mac and Linux) until the storage allowance has been fully used (personal license). – Files can be accessed from the web or from a mobile phone. – Files too large to send by e-mail transmission can be shared in a click. – Stored files are never automatically deleted. – Cloud storage, scalability and redundancy thanks to geographic Raid 5 technology.

Memopal foresees a future in which users will work on their documents, music and photographs at the speed of a local disk, while taking advantage of an archive accessible from anywhere, at any time. Furthemore, Memopal will last much longer than the user's computer.
