Tonido is a new way to create your own Personal Cloud server. Doesn’t like Dropbox or any other ordinary Cloud system, Tonido will not store any of your files on the Tonido server. All files remains in your own server but you can access it from anywhere with internet connection. You can use your own computer as a media server which provides photos, music, videos or any other files to be accessed from other devices such as Android phones and tablets, iPhone etc.
Tonido comes with a simple and easy to use web management console. After installation, you will need to create an account on Tonido. You can access files or media on your computers from other devices with this account. To learn more about how Tonido works, you can read it here: http://www.tonido.com/support/display/docs/Understanding+How+Tonido+Works.
