CloudOTG – your own cloud On-The-Go


Turn your computer (even an old one) into a secure cloud with unique features for you, your family, friends, and colleagues.


CloudOTG is a multi-user server on a bootable flash drive to store, create, organize, and share digital content using any PC manufactured after 2005. The hard drive of the PC itself is not used.

CloudOTG is a self-contained cloud. It has its own operating system and can work without an internet connection while still providing services to nearby devices as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Or, for maximum security, you can turn off all remote access with a click of a button and use it as a standalone computer.

To encrypt communication, CloudOTG automatically generates self-signed certificates that work regardless of the internet connection.


  • Your own cloud that fits in your pocket. No recurring fees or subscriptions.
  • Not dependent on a particular computer. Does not use or modify the hard drive of the computer.
  • Secure. Full flash disk encryption. All communications are encrypted. Can work without an internet connection, preventing attacks of all kinds of malware and data breaches.
  • Perfect for storing private, shareable, or restricted files and data in one place, even if it is hosted on someone else's computer. No one, not even the owner/administrator, can bypass the user interface to view someone else's data and files.
  • Record music from any source. CloudOTG can record music from any source that is playing through your computer's headphones or speakers. This includes music from the internet, local media players, and even other applications that are running on your computer. CloudOTG will automatically detect the beginning and end of each song, so you don't have to worry about trimming your recordings. This makes it easy to create high-quality music recordings without any special equipment.
  • Stream media to your TV. CloudOTG can play back video and audio files on your TV via HDMI. You can also control the playback remotely using your smartphone or computer. This makes it easy to watch movies, listen to music, or display photos on your big screen TV.
  • Play audio files in a variety of ways. CloudOTG can play back audio files in a list, sorted or unsorted, randomized, or repeatable. You can also create dynamic playlists based on your search results. This makes it easy to listen to your favorite music, learn a new language, or just relax and enjoy the sounds.
  • Organize your files and data the way you want with custom categories and values. Beyond simple labels, you can create custom categories and choose who can see them. This allows you to organize your files and data in a way that makes sense to you, without imposing it on others. Different types of values allow you to search by range (e.g., numbers, dates, currency), save notes, passwords, or use predefined lists of possible values. For example, you could create a category called “Passwords” of type Text and set its visibility to “Private,” and then assign values such as “Bank Account Password,” “Email Password,” and “Social Media Password.” This would make it easy to find and manage your passwords all in one place.
  • Ability to set the size of the thumbnails in search results. This can be helpful when looking for a document among similar documents. By setting a large resolution, it makes it unnecessary to open every file to be able to read and see if it is a match. The ability to set the size of the thumbnail is a small but significant improvement to the user experience. This is especially beneficial for users who are visually impaired or who have difficulty reading small text.
  • A better alternative to email. CloudOTG is a more secure and private way to communicate. Messages are not stored on intermediate servers, so they are not subject to third-party interference. Messages can also be modified or deleted at any time, giving users more control over their data. CloudOTG offers multiple ways to make emails visible to individual users or groups of users. For more information, see The future of communication: SPC as a replacement for email in HOW-TO section in the CloudOTG User Guide.
  • Integrated with SkanApp (Android), a high-speed book and document scanner that can scan up to 400 pages in 10 minutes.
  • SkanApp can use a higher-quality OCR from CloudOTG instead of its own builtin OCR engine.
