Funambol Open Source Lets Cloud Providers Sync Billions of Mobiles

Enables Public and Private Clouds to Sync Mobile Phones and Devices With Any Data

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/01/09 -- Funambol, the leading provider of open source mobile cloud sync and push email for billions of phones, today announced that its open source software now syncs billions of mobile devices with public and private compute clouds. Funambol's software allows cloud computing providers such as Amazon and others to sync billions of devices with any data or content.

"As we head into 2010, more companies are offering cloud computing," said Fabrizio Capobianco, Funambol CEO. "Yet, today's clouds are not equipped to handle the billions of mobile devices that people want to use to access cloud data and content. Funambol's open source platform adds mobile capabilities to any cloud, enabling cloud providers to wirelessly sync any data, anytime, anywhere."

With Funambol's open source mobile cloud platform, cloud providers do not need to reinvent the wireless wheel to sync cloud content with wireless devices. Funambol's open platform provides an easy, affordable and fast way to enable billions of mobile devices to sync cloud-based data.

Wireless devices are quickly expanding beyond smartphones to include printers, cameras, mp3 players, e-readers, e-photo frames and appliances. Device compatibility and management are essential to ensuring that data flows smoothly between devices and the cloud. The increased bandwidth of 4G networks makes this more complex. Because it is open source software and built on open standards, Funambol is uniquely positioned as the leader in mobile cloud services to address these challenges.

Funambol's award-winning open source mobile cloud sync and device management platform is based on the latest Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) standards. The company's mobile client software supports billions of wireless devices, connecting them with social networks, email systems, computers and databases. Funambol's AJAX web 2.0 portal allows viewing, managing and sharing cloud data. These components make all clouds 'mobile,' enabling devices to be integrated into cloud-based systems.
