Nubo, the Android-based cloud workspace, has released a new version of its bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution that leaves zero data on employee devices. The updated version delivers a dramatic improvement in bandwidth consumption, seamless transitions between data networks and a new file browser to give Nubo users a faster and more consistent experience on-the-move.
To achieve higher performance, the Nubo team made significant updates to Nubo’s UX Over IP technology, the patent-pending remote display protocol that allows users to control cloud-based applications as if they were on the user’s own mobile device.
UX Over IP now uses less than a quarter of the bandwidth consumed by the original version. With peak bandwidth consumption now below 1000 kilobytes per second, Nubo is equipped to maintain high performance on weak or busy data networks.
Moreover, the UX Over IP now transitions seamlessly between wireless and cell networks. Whether users are switching between cellular zones or transitioning from a 3G connection to a home wireless network, Nubo will maintain a pristine connection.
“In the best conditions, Nubo users forget that they’re operating applications in a remote workspace that could be hundreds or thousands of miles away,” said Israel Lifshitz, CEO of Nubo. “So we improved Nubo to provide fast and consistent performance no matter where users are and no matter where they’re going. Testers who experienced delays or disruptions with the original version of Nubo will notice a significant difference.”
In addition to the performance boost, Nubo now features a file browser app that makes it easy to locate documents, presentations, photos and other files. When mapped to the organization’s file server, the browser allows Nubo users to view and edit all the same files they would access on their office workstation.
“From the beginning, Nubo eliminated the security concerns and management headaches that IT would normally face with BYOD solutions by keeping all data strictly in the cloud or in company datacenters,” said Lifshitz. “Now, we’ve taken steps to make sure that Nubo users still get all responsiveness, convenience and simplicity they expect on a mobile device.”
