Cyberduck[2], the premier cloud storage client that debuted on the Mac, is now also available on Windows and allows you to connect to Rackspace Cloud Files[3] or any OpenStack[4] compliant storage provider. It features a browser to download, upload and move or copy files using drag and drop with an hierarchical view to browse large folder structures efficiently. Data transfers are handled with ease, including synchronization of local data with remote directories. To edit files, a seamless integration with any external editor application makes it easy to change content quickly directly in the container.

Cyberduck provides configuration options to enable Akamai content distribution network (CDN). It allows you to toggle access logging for containers and to purge files from edge locations. The CDN URLs of files including the newly introduced SSL endpoints can be copied quickly to the clipboard.

Bundled with more than 30 localizations including Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Spanish, German and French, the user interface makes you instantly feel at home.
