FileCloud Case study: athletic department of a large university
Need: File Sharing Solution for 300+ users in University’s athletic department
For past one year, director of the IT services at a large university had been seeking a file sharing solution that would help students, athletes, coaches, staff to share files, training videos with among themselves and people outside of the university.
Key Requirements:Store large training videos and share with athletes and coachesLarge storage at affordable price On-premise cloud to protect intellectual Property and prevent IP getting to public cloud Mobile apps to support BYOD (bring your own device)Granular Controls to provide various levels of permission
Problem: Public Cloud solutions are expensive, not suitable for large media storage and offers minimal auditing capabilities
Director of the IT services knew that he needed a simple and secure file sharing solution that provides greater levels of control and auditing capabilities for his administrators. Also, he needed a system that can store large media files at a reasonable cost. His team’s deep research concluded that the public cloud solutions are expensive and comes with draconian storage limits. Further they provide minimal auditing and monitoring capabilities.
Solution: fileCloud proved to be simple and yet powerful solution
They tried fileCloud for 15 days before deciding that Tonido fileCloud was the best solution for the university.
First, they rolled it out to a few students and staff as a trial. The trial users absolutely loved fileCloud mobile apps and flexibility of a private cloud. Within next one month, they migrated all of their users to filecloud. Migrating of the data from their existing cloud solution to fileCloud was simple and took less than a week. Ever since the implementation, the team has received great positive feedback. Now they can store unlimited number of training videos, photos and documents in thier own storage without worrying about storage limits and expensive pricing. Universtity is currently trying fileCloud for a large scale implementation across the entire university.
In his words:
“We love FileCloud’s simplicity, mobile apps, and above all, responsiveness of the FileCloud team”
