Jolicloud 2 will be the next version of Jolicloud, a Cloud service that aggregates all the popular and not-so popular Cloud services.
It started life as Joli OS, a free operating system optimized for netbooks and other low-resource computers. Since then, it has evolved into a pure online service. Jolicloud, the company behind it, is based in Paris, France.
Jolicloud 2 has not been released to the public yet. Existing users were given early access to the service. According to an official blog post, “Jolicloud 2 lives entirely in the browser. It’s been designed mainly for Chrome and Chromebook users, but it should also work with other modern browsers.”
For the record, I tried it on Firefox 25 running on Linux Mint 16, and I can report that it worked. In fact the screen shots in this article, which shows the different online resources that can be accessed from its interface, were taken from Firefox 25.
This screen shot shows the home page. On the left bar is a list of services that are baked into the system. Those are services you see with a lock symbol on their icons. The bar is collapsible. Services that you may add have a “+” symbol on their icons.
You can make a search on supported services right from your Jolicloud account.

Jolicloud 2 is a very nifty and very useful service. With so many online Cloud services around, it’s good to have one interface that you can access them from. To give Jolicloud 2 Beta a try, visit Jolicloud.com.
