Twango Launches Next Generation Media-Sharing Service

Twango Launches Next Generation Media-Sharing Service

REDMOND, Washington, October 11 /PRNewswire/ --

- Now People Can Share All Their Digital Media Any Way They Choose

Today Twango (http://www.twango.com ) launched a next generation media-sharing service offering a comprehensive, integrated solution for people seeking to organize, share and republish all their media online. Unlike previous generations of media-sharing services, Twango enables people to share all media types such as pictures, video, audio, Microsoft Office documents and PDFs -- more than 110 file types in all. Plus, people can share their media in a wide variety of ways, without being locked into a "one way fits all" style of sharing.

Twango is uniquely designed to appeal to the broad market of people who are eager to share their media, but want a more versatile and sophisticated service than Flickr, YouTube or Photobucket. Twango is a free service with unlimited storage and no required software downloads.

"Our goal at Twango is to provide people with the easiest and most complete way to share all of their personal media in one place," says Serena Glover, a co-founder of Twango. "The Twango community is fun and dynamic because people have many ways to share what they are passionate about and they can select how they want to share. We put control back into the hands of the users."

"I quickly became hooked on Twango," says newlywed Kelsey O'Brien. "One channel I created showcases pictures and video from our wedding as well as our honeymoon in Belize. Within moments, friends and family were able to share in the experience and could contribute their own comments, pictures and video," added O'Brien.

Multiple Ways to Share -- it's Your Choice

You begin by creating a channel to contain your photos, videos and other media. Then, you simply upload your media from a PC or Macintosh. You can also upload directly from your mobile phone or any device that can send email. You can create as many channels as you like.

Twango makes it easy to display your media publicly to the entire world or share privately to only those you invite. No signup is required for your guests to view your media, even if it is shared to them privately.

Twango offers a variety of ways to customize the sharing experience. You can control not only who sees your media, but also what you will allow them to do. For example, you can permit others to simply view your media, or you might allow them to add keywords, comments, and even their own media to your channels.

Easily Republish Wherever You Want

Twango makes it simple to republish your media with style. You host your media on Twango, and then with a simple copy/paste you can embed it anywhere on the web -- into blogs, discussion groups, websites, MySpace profiles and eBay auctions. Other features include:

- Displaying your media with cool slideshows, tickers and more. - Automatically publishing your media in RSS/XML feeds. - Automatically making pod cast-compatible media available to iTunes and the iPod.

A Powerful Sharing Platform

In addition to being a social destination, Twango is engineered from the ground up to be a robust sharing platform. The API (Application Programming Interface) being used internally by Twango will be made available to third-party developers. The API gives developers the freedom to create innovative software and services such as uploaders, mashups and new ways to display and manipulate media stored on Twango.

The company's founders were previously senior managers with Microsoft Corp. and have extensive experience creating media properties and Internet services.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
