Lenovo launches cloud storage service with access to social networks

The site will offer 5GB of free capacity

Lenovo this week offered a peek under the covers on a new consumer cloud storage service called Lenovo Reach, which it said will allow users to securely access their cloud-based files and applications from any device via a single login ID.

Expected to go live later this year, Lenovo Reach will offer 5GB of free capacity.

Beginning June 22, Lenovo said it will offer the Reach storage service to a limited number of users in order to garner feedback.

Customers interested in a preview of Lenovo Reach can sign up now for the beta test.

The Lenovo Reach personal cloud service will offer a single-sign on ID that allows users access to social networks, their online applications, as well as a search engine to help them find files, photos and other digital media across their online storage accounts.

The new service can encrypt and remember all user IDs and passwords, offering users a method of accessing favorite websites with a single click.

"The intuitive interface is consistent across all user devices and is designed for touch as well as keyboard and mouse interaction," Lenovo said.

Lenovo Reach supports Microsoft Windows, Google Android and iOS operating systems across Lenovo and non-Lenovo branded PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

"Lenovo Reach makes it incredibly simple and convenient for people to interact with their growing libraries of digital content and apps from virtually anywhere, at any time, on any device through a consistent interface," Mark Cohen, vice president of software and cloud solutions at Lenovo, said in a statement. "Lenovo Reach plays a fundamental role in our plan to expand cloud services to consumers around the world."
