A Diskless Workstation or Diskless Terminal is a computer with no disk drives that relies on network booting of operating systems and network storage and access for files.
These were developed as early as the 70's to make it easier for people who work in certain fields to use a computer without having to juggle disks, punch cards or other media. Everything is contained within the network, accessible through your login credentials.
These workstations became somewhat of a joke among IT personnel in the late 90's and early 2000's when CD's and DVD's were expected to be the longstanding preference for storage media for years to come. Like with all good ideas, however, we have come full circle, and now in the modern age, cloud storage is fulfilling that diskless role, along with tablets and mobile devices.
Eventually the good idea did prevail and cloud services like OpenDrive have helped us return to a simpler and easier way of managing both our personal and business files, without the need for costly servers and workstations, and also without taking up all that space, now having the ability to manage everything with a device small enough to fit into your pocket.

The cloud is full of many wonderful things. Things that make peoples' lives brighter and better, things that make people laugh and cry, things that generate profit or make a grandmother smile. All data has a story. OpenDrive is the keeper of all those stories and more! Come find out how today!

Back during the dawn of computers, data and programs would be stored on punch cards. Instead of your files being neatly stored on a hard drive, taking up little space, your files would look like this. Fortunately, there are easier ways to process and store our data now. Come let us show you how!

The Apple IIGS was released in September of 1986, almost 30 years ago. A continuation of the Apple II line, this computer was so durable and solid that many of them that are found today still work. In fact, one of our employees has one in his closet and it still boots up the same way it did when he was a kid.
This model ended up being expandable to the point where it was even capable of surfing the Internet, in text only, of course. Although OpenDrive can accommodate just about any device, we would definitely recommend connecting through a computer that is just a little newer.

The Altair is considered by most to be one of the first computers designed for personal use, originally developed in 1974. It is the spark that ignited the modern technological revolution and helped usher us into this exciting age of personal devices and cloud storage.

“The Lisa is a personal computer introduced by Apple Computer Inc. on January 19, 1983. It was one of the first personal computers to offer a graphical user interface (GUI) in a machine aimed at individual business users. Development of the Lisa began in 1978, and it underwent many changes during the development period before shipping at the very high price of $9,995 with a 5 MB hard drive. The high price, relatively low performance and unreliable "Twiggy" floppy disks led to poor sales, with only 100,000 units sold. In 1982, after Steve Jobs was forced out of the Lisa project, he joined the Macintosh project.” Source - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Lisa

Most computers, when they have reached their life span, quickly become obsolete. This was hardly true of the Apple II computer in a lot of ways. Not only did it continue to sell well for 16 years, part of the technology was developed by Steve Wozniak into the CL-9 CORE, the first universal remote control.

Just as a lot of the common electronics we use today are simply older pieces of technology built up and improved into a modern product, the same is true for cloud storage. What started as a simple network of computers is now a household item that can connect to any device and automatically keep our data secure and safe on the Cloud. Come see how today!

Very true. We, Celadon Inc., manufactured and sold the CORE remote control and the next gen versions for many many years. Great design from the beginning, thanks to Woz and his team.
