NZ company launches unique cloud storage app
Posted on 17-Feb-2014 20:07. | Tags Filed under: News.



Layer3 has developed Filecloud, an application that does everything other cloud storage solutions do, but adds on some additional bells and whistles.

Chief executive, Hayden Kirk, says the application took six months to develop, but has been snapped up quickly by willing customers.

It’s designed to serve as a basic application with a smooth and familiar user interface for business which just want a simple file storage option, and as a sophisticated administration and document management tool for IT departments that need serious analysis and auditing of file management information.

“Our customers are all very comfortable with cloud file storage as a concept, but many of them prefer to use a New Zealand-based tool because it provides additional security,” Hayden says.

Filecloud data is fully encrypted (448 bit) and will sync across all devices. It provides for unlimited versions of documents, allows for re-instatement of deleted files and offers a full reporting suite. It’s similar in functionality to Dropbox.

Hayden says an added advantage of using a New Zealand-based cloud storage system is that New Zealand businesses will probably get free up and download traffic, depending on their ISP.

“International data costs can be a real problem for heavy users of off-shore cloud file systems,” Hayden says.

Another popular feature is that users enjoy a ‘managed service’ that provides them with full access to Layer3’s local helpdesk.

The company’s Filecloud application sits alongside its virtual office suite, which is also a ready seller, Hayden says.

“It means we can provide an end-to-end cloud computing solution for customer with just one PC or with hundreds.”
