Hybrid cloud pioneer Egnyte, today announced it's next generation content storage and sharing infrastructure with Egnyte Cloud Control. Cloud Control offers enterprises complete control over their cloud strategy with a cloud and device agnostic service that can easily scale to thousands of users across different geographies. With average uploads speeds exceeding 25X ordinary cloud services.
IT departments have a unique and complex set of problems when setting the cloud strategy for their organization. They must balance where their data resides due to regulatory and reporting issues, with investments in existing infrastructure and the demands of the BYOD movement.
Cloud only approaches offered users flexibility and access, but often at the expense of security and governance. Hybrid cloud approaches bridge the gap, bringing the best of both worlds, offering cloud accessibility, auditability, IT control and behind the firewall access. However enterprises with complex infrastructures, or data that could not live outside of the firewall have special needs. Cloud Control is designed to offer security, scalability, control and to ensure that content can be stored behind the firewall.
Cloud Control allows customers to stitch together a quilt of different storage devices and cloud types into a Global Name Space that gives users access to files irrespective of location, device type, or storage cloud. In this way storage is effectively decoupled from the application, and nodes can be strategically placed in different geographies to take advantage of access patterns. Content can live completely behind the firewall, in a third party storage cloud such as AWS S3, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, etc. or in Egnyte's public Cloud. Within corporate networks, Cloud Control works off of existing file system structures, does not force deployment of proprietary file systems, and allows direct access to local shares. This approach is exclusive to Egnyte and allows enterprises to retain all the benefits of the cloud, such as scalability, elasticity and security.
Cloud Control is an invitation only beta and will be publicly available in late Q1 of 2013. Those interested in participating in the beta program should contact Egnyte at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
