Sync, share, and store across SharePoint, Amazon S3, Windows network drives and more for true “Universal File Access”
LEXINGTON, MA – November 11, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — ownCloud, Inc., the company behind the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, today released ownCloud 7 Enterprise Edition, for the first time giving organizations the ability to access, control and manage files across corporate data silos (application, storage and even cloud) keeping them where they are and leveraging existing data management, security and governance tools and processes.
ownCloud 7 Enterprise Edition protects sensitive corporate files, all while providing end users with flexible and easy access to files, from any device, anywhere. With ownCloud’s unique Server-to-Server Sharing capabilities, users on one ownCloud installation can seamlessly share files with users on a different ownCloud installation without using shared links. Both users retain the privacy and control of a private ownCloud, and gain the flexibility and ease-of-use of a public cloud.
“Every organization has an issue with data sprawl, and mobility just makes it worse,” said Terri McClure, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. “The special sauce is giving employees access to all their data from a single point, no matter what device they use, to avoid even more redundancy and still keep IT in control.”
“Due to the sheer size of our on-premise file sync and share service, it was clear to us from the outset that we had to find a software product that allowed us to seamlessly share files amongst multiple, operationally independent server locations,” said Dr. Raimund Vogl, head of the Centre for Applied Information Technology (ZIV) at Münster University and consortium manager of Sync & Share NRW. Sync and Share NRW is an association of 22 research and applied science universities in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany currently rolling out one of Europe’s largest cloud implementations. “ownCloud’s Server-to-Server Sharing brings this feature to us, allowing users to share their data with individuals or groups at other universities – and this concept is not limited to the institutions in our project – it is open to ownClouds outside the academic community of our state and will open new ways of collaboration in research. Teachers, students and administrators can collaborate across NRW seamlessly – and privately.”
Introducing Universal File Access
“Organizations have spent years building complex, heterogeneous IT environments to support their business processes,” said Markus Rex, CEO, ownCloud. “And now, with the introduction of public clouds and consumer-grade file sync and share apps it just gets more complex – a real unstructured data mess adding complexity and cost as well as the potential for serious security and privacy disasters. ownCloud offers IT the ability to give employees quick and easy access to their files – no matter where they reside – and provides a data management layer allowing IT to maintain complete policy based control and integrating with the tools and processes they already have.”
