We are extremely excited to announce two on-premise storage options from EMC to augment our existing cloud storage option!
This approach gives IT unprecedented choice and control over where managed files reside, while users benefit with a secure, easy-to-use solution for file sync and sharing across all of their computers and devices.
It’s no secret that enterprise business users demand the ability to access, share and collaborate with all of their files from any location, on any device at any time. Unfortunately, many are using consumer-grade services that place valuable enterprise data at risk. IT often attempts to block these services and risk upsetting their end users.
Syncplicity by Axway Business Edition has always provided a solution to the dilemma by giving businesses an alternative that provides end users the consumer-grade experience they want, while giving IT enterprise-grade security and controls. However, many organizations must also comply with corporate governance and data sovereignty policies regarding storage and handling of files that make cloud-based storage solutions difficult to deploy at enterprise-scale.
With the new on premise storage option for Syncplicity by Axway, we provides enterprises the best of all worlds – a cloud-based online file sharing offering that simplifies end user deployment and administration with on-premise storage that gives IT control of the storage layer, in addition to continuing to provide Syncplicity by Axway storage in the cloud.
For on-premise storage, Syncplicity by Axway users can choose from two industry leading storage platforms: EMC Isilon or EMC Atmos – whichever best meets their requirements. EMC Isilon provides the industry’s easiest to manage, top performing and massively scalable NAS solution, capable of growing from 10’s of terabytes to 10’s of petabytes, providing IT full control over where files reside across their global infrastructure. EMC Atmos provides industry leading object storage technology, designed to support large multi-site, multi-tenant, active-active environments. Atmos allows the application and storage to run anywhere and provides metering and chargeback capabilities based on bandwidth and consumption to ensure IT retains the necessary controls.
The benefits of combining EMC Syncplicity by Axway online file sharing service with EMC on-premise storage include:
- Increased Productivity: Users can easily sync, access and share files with anyone, anytime, anywhere and on any device for new levels of productivity and agility while giving IT the security, visibility and manageability they need.
- Flexibility and Ease of Management: Enterprises will experience the agility and continuous innovation from deploying a cloud-based online file sharing solution for users while retaining complete control over data and storage resources. It combines the rich set of Syncplicity by Axway’s administrative tools and security, compliance and policy controls to manage sync-and-share functionality along with the unmatched manageability, scalability and resiliency of EMC storage.
- Reduced Compliance Risk and Increased Control: Enterprise information will reside on EMC storage, situated on-premise, subject to IT security governance and protection policies. Files are not duplicated both on-premise and in the cloud. With the EMC solutions, data objects stored on premise remain on premise and within IT control.
We hope you are as excited about this new capability as we are! It is currently in Beta with planned General Availability very soon.
