EMC extends online file sharing with solutions for on-premise and cloud storage (with video)
Posted on 17-Jan-2013 12:45. | Tags Filed under: News.


EMC Corporation has announced beta availability of EMCís Syncplicity cloud-based online file sharing service with the option for customers to use either EMC Isilon scale-out NAS or EMC Atmos object-based storage. Now customers can store their files on-premise in addition to the cloud.

Todayís 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, and have taken it upon themselves to use a variety of consumer-focused solutions and services that place valuable enterprise data at risk.

These enterprise users typically store 20-30 GBs of business-related file data on their computers and devices, and often look to share files with individuals and groups inside and outside the corporate firewall. This can be particularly challenging when they need access to files using their own mobile devices or need to share with users who do not have existing accounts on their corporate network.

IT teams are charged with protecting company files and data, and some view todayís consumer-oriented approaches for online file sharing as unattractive options, and attempt to block them because some cloud infrastructures limit the ability to enforce policies related to security and administration.

Many organizations must also comply with long-standing corporate governance and data sovereignty policies regarding storage and handling of files that make cloud-based storage solutions difficult to deploy at enterprise-scale.

EMCís approach 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 in the cloud. For on-premise storage, Syncplicity users can choose from two industry leading storage platforms: EMC Isilon or EMC Atmos Ė whichever best meets their requirements.

EMC Isilon provides an easy to manage, top performing and massively scalable NAS solution, capable of growing from 10ís of terabytes to 10ís 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.
