Amazon Web Services Introduces Amazon Zocalo
Posted on 11-Jul-2014 09:26. | Tags Filed under: News.



Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) has announced Amazon Zocalo, a fully managed, secure enterprise storage and sharing service with strong administrative controls and feedback capabilities that improve user productivity.

With Amazon Zocalo, customers can store, share, and gather feedback on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, webpages, images, PDFs, or text files – from the device of their choice.

Over the last several years, enterprise document and collaboration systems have tried to be too many things to users, and ended up becoming overly complex and expensive for both users and IT organizations. This is especially true as it relates to document and file storage, sharing, and feedback. As a result, enterprises are left with the unfortunate choice of using email to share documents and files (which is simple to send, but not secure nor easy to keep organized) or suffer with the status quo, work around the complexity and high cost, and hope new alternatives are made available.

“Customers have told us that they’re fed up with the cost, complexity, and performance of their existing old guard enterprise document and collaboration management tools,” said Noah Eisner, General Manager, Amazon Zocalo at Amazon Web Services. “AWS was increasingly being asked to provide an enterprise storage and sharing tool that was easy to use, allowed users to quickly collaborate with others, and met the strict security needs of their organizations. That’s what Amazon Zocalo was built to do.”

Amazon Zocalo lets users share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, webpages, images, PDFs, or text files with others. All data stored in Amazon Zocalo is encrypted in transit and at rest, and administrators can set policies to control users’ sharing behavior, choose the AWS Region where users’ data is stored, and view audit logs to track file and user activity.

The new platform can integrate with an organization’s existing Active Directory, meaning that end users can continue to use their existing enterprise credentials to access Amazon Zocalo.

Amazon Zocalo is priced at US$5 per user per month, including 200 GB of storage. For Amazon WorkSpaces customers, Amazon Zocalo is free up to 50 GB of storage, and US$2 per user per month for up to 200 GB of storage. With Amazon Zocalo there is no hardware to purchase and maintain and no software to deploy; administrators simply enable the service for their organization and invite users.
