Abstract [en]

This report describes a bachelor thesis performed at Xcerion for their subsidiary CloudMe. CloudMe has a service for cloud computing which makes your files accessible from anywhere, anytime.

Cloud computing is addressed to both business and ordinary home users. With the ability to store important documents or family photos in the cloud other important subjects can be focused on. A cloud can in short be described as a metaphor for the internet and with the growing server houses and accessibility of cloud computing the need for USB-sticks (Universal Serial Bus) and hard drives are slowly fading away.

CloudMe today offers several different services to access the cloud from a number of devices which includes smartphones, a web-browser and the home computer. This thesis work is about upgrading and improving their desktop application, Easy Upload. Easy Upload makes it possible to back-up several folders to the cloud but with the only option of uploading files and folders. Only uploading files to the cloud makes the application very restricted and lacking of an important feature, downloading from the cloud. Designing this new feature resulted in four different synchronization options; Upload, Download, Bidirectional and Hotsync, each configurable for every connected folder.

With these options a user is offered the possibility to choose which synchronization best to use for the task in hand. The ability to choose, and configure, any folder on your computer opens up the restrictions which several large cloud computing services has today with one specific folder for the entire cloud. To ease the access and the understanding of these new synchronization options, a complete redesign of the user interface was developed.

The name Easy Upload could no longer be associated with this application and therefore Easy Upload was renamed to suit the new functionality of the application and bring it closer to the association with the company CloudMe. When this thesis work was completed Easy Upload was considered to be the predecessor of CloudMe Sync.
