Announcing FileCloud 5.0 – Network Folder Sync, Endpoint Backup, Openstack and more
We are happy to announce the immediate availability of FileCloud 5.0.
FileCloud 5.0 is a landmark release which brings unprecedented power and features to make FileCloud the best Private Enterprise File Sharing and Sync Solution available in the market today.
Here are the major highlights:
Network Folder Offline Access
Previous to FileCloud 5.0, it was not possible to make Network Folders available offline for editing (for example: Managed Storage Synced Files). Now in FileCloud 5.0, we are now supporting the ability to make network folders available offline locally for employees to use when offline. They can edit and modify files and they can then synchronize the files back the Network Folders when online.
FileCloud 5.0 also introduces the ability to backup employee’s data in arbitrary folders on computers running Windows, Mac or Linux to FileCloud for safekeeping.
Folders selected for backup are automatically backed up on a schedule selected by the user.
Sync App Improvements
There are many significant sync app improvements including key usability fixes in Windows where icon overlays are used to indicate the sync status of files directly in Windows Explorer.
There is also a status window, that shows the synchronization status clearly and unambiguously. This is useful especially if you are synchronizing large datasets and want to track the progress of the sync.
The OpenStack Object Store, known as Swift, offers cloud storage software so that you can store and retrieve lots of data with a simple API. It’s built for scale and optimized for durability, availability, and concurrency across the entire data set. FileCloud 5.0 allows using OpenStack Swift as a storage backend instead of using traditional disk storage. This allows building very large storage solutions at the fraction of the cost of traditional enterprise systems.
iOS Media Backup
Endpoint backup is not limited only to Desktops.
The new FileCloud iOS app allows employees to automatically backup their media files (photos and videos) directly to FileCloud.
We are continuing in our quest to make Tonido FileCloud the best Private Enterprise Cloud solution in the market. We believe FileCloud 5.0 is a major landmark release in that quest and augurs well for the future.
