Mountain Duck is a commercial sister product of the free Cyberduck. It is based on Cyberduck’s solid open-source foundation and was released after a long period of close beta test. Mountain Duck supports connecting to any server you want over all major protocols, allows users to mount servers and cloud storage services as local disks in the computer’s Windows Explorer/File Manager/Finder. This way, you can open and edit files remotely from any local program, just as convenient as working with local files.

Mountain Duck is a cross-platform (for Windows and Mac) cloud storage services local management tool (i.e., a remote disk local mapping tool). It is good at transferring remote FTP space, WebDev, Swift, S3, Azure, Rackspace, Google Cloud and other popular cloud storage services to local for management. This case, you can put these cloud directories into Windows’ File Explorer or Mac’s Finder for synchronized management. Then common file/folder operations such as upload/download, copy/move/delete can keep synchronization with the remote space.

If you don’t want to use the traditional upload & download tools or proprietary clients from network drive providers, then you can choose to use Mountain Duck to map your remote cloud storage services locally, and access and use them like local disks. In addition, Mountain Duck also comes with an important ability – to run SSH and perform commands and other operations directly in the path of remote directory. This is definitely an essential feature for webmasters, administrators and VPS users.
