A Jolicloud renaissance

Over the last 5 years Jolicloud has become the largest personal cloud platform in the world.

Our journey started with Joli OS, our first product, a free operating system designed to connect low cost computers to the cloud, and downloaded more than 5 million times around the planet.

Joli OS introduced a new kind of interface created by combining data from multiple clouds in one place. From storage to photos, music or productivity Jolicloud invented a new way to access and enjoy our content.
We called it “personal cloud” because we believe that all this content spread across the Internet belongs to you. That all this data is part of your life. Part of you.

It is now time to take another step in that advancement. Where a full OS was once needed, now you just need a browser to access the full potential of Jolicloud. That’s why Joli OS is being discontinued and will no longer be officially supported. You can check our FAQ for more details.

In a few days, we will announce our first app as part of the new Jolicloud platform and we want you to be one of the first to give it a try.

Stay tuned, the future of Jolicloud is coming!

Heartbleed? It’s ok. You’re home and safe with Jolicloud!

On April 7th, a group of security researchers discovered and publicly disclosed a vulnerability called “Heartbleed” in OpenSSL library. This library is used to secure online communications for most services on the Internet.

As soon as we were aware of Heartbleed, we checked our entire backend to make sure your data are and have been safe. And the good news is that we were not affected by the issue because our version of OpenSSL is not vulnerable to Heartbleed!

Of course, we are still monitoring the situation and will do the necessary for you if we discover anything. Because OpenSSL is widely used on the Internet, we recommend checking if your other services are affected before logging into them again.

Jolicloud 2 Housewarming Party

December 12th, 2013

After months of hard work, we are ready to give our existing users early access to Jolicloud 2 and the awesome new features we have prepared for you.

Jolicloud 2 lives entirely in the browser. It’s been designed mainly for Chrome and Chromebook users, but it should also work with other modern browsers.

If you have used one of our previous products, you should be familiar with the interface. We have kept all the best parts like the Joli OS desktop and the Jolidrive layout, but we have reorganized everything under two roofs.

Home and Drive

Jolicloud has now two sections: Home which gathers all your content in one place, and Drive which unifies all your online storage.
You can switch between Home and Drive at any time, and both services have been designed to work well together.

If you are still using the Jolicloud app launcher, no worries: it’s now under the Drive section. You can make it appear or disappear in the settings.

What’s New: Don’t miss out on what’s happening

With all the services that we follow out there, it’s hard to keep track of all the things that matter. With What’s New, everything is in one place, organized in categories.

Library: Keep the important stuff in one place

Library is your time machine that keeps an organized history of all the things you’ve liked across the Internet. Anything you’ve liked elsewhere will automagically appear there. And when you like something in Jolicloud, it automatically adds it to your Library and sends a like to the original service.

Feedly: Bring the news!

Because news is an important part of our cloud life, we have worked with Feedly to bring you one of the simplest RSS experiences available. And we’ve fully integrated it with other cloud services.

Google Reader users, Jolicloud is now officially your new Home!

Drive: All your online storages


Our storage interface is one of the best available in a browser. With Drive, you can manage all your storage services online in one place. And you can do much more with your files than you could in the original web interface of the service: play music and video, edit text, share files and folders in one click.

Try it, you will love it!
