Iterate GmBh has shipped Mountain Duck 1.0, a smart tool which mounts remote volumes as local drives in Windows Explorer and the Mac’s Finder.
Based on the developer’s Cyberduck technology, Mountain Duck connects to FTP and SFTP servers, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Azure and OpenStack Swift storage.
Full support for secured SSL connections, strong ciphers, public key and two factor authentication keeps your communications safe at all times.
Setup is easy, particularly on the Mac: despite all the apparent system-level tweakery, there’s no admin privileges or installation required.
Once Mountain Duck is running, there’s no more work to do. You’re able to browse remote files and open them with any application, just as though they were on a local drive.
A 30-day trial build is available, and if you’re happy, licenses can be purchased from $40 (single user) to $26.66 each (50 users).
Mountain Duck 1.0 is available as a trial for OS X 10.7 or later and Windows Vista-10.
