The developer behind Cyberduck has brought out a new app, following a lengthy private beta; one that allows users to mount remote storage as if it is a local drive. Iterate's Mountain Duck is a minimal app, that connects to online services and remote data stores, adding it as a volume that can have its files accessed from the Finder on Mac, and File Explorer in Windows, as well as any local application that also needs to read or write files to the location.

Since it is based on Cyberduck's underlying technology, it can access a wide variety of storage locations using the same protocols as its stablemate, including FTP over SSL/TLS connections, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3 storage, Microsoft Azure, and OpenStack Swift. The app has a minimal interface, residing in the status bar with a list of connectable volumes and other options, and can be set to automatically mount previously-mounted drives when opened.



Both the Mac and Windows versions of Mountain Duck are available to download, both from the developer and via the Mac App Store, with a 30-day trial available from Iterate's website. A single license costs $40, but there are discounts available when bought directly from Iterate itself, starting at 30 percent off an order of five licenses.

Yes, it's also similar to Panic's "Transmit Disk."
