Document Management Product news OS33 unveils Cloud Drive O


S33, the IT-as-a-Service Delivery Platform for MSPs, has introduced OS33 Cloud Drive, a technology that creates a unified file system


by bringing together storage from different private and public Cloud technologies. OS33’s Webtop with Cloud Drive technology now allows end-users to seamlessly access their files from any device, across cloud- based and local applications, providing users with a unified experience.


OS33 Cloud Drive technology acts as a gateway for Service Providers and their customers by unifying the storage capabilities of Amazon Simple Storage, SharePoint 2010 Doclibs for ECM, and Microsoft Windows on NTFS and DFS. For MSPs, this means that they can now deploy and sell a unified Cloud-based storage solution, which allows their business customers to take advantage of top market technologies without having to deal with the complexity of adopting diverse services from multiple vendors. With OS33 Cloud Drive, end-users can seamlessly move data and files across various storage platforms and access it within a unified interface. With OS33 Cloud Drive, MSPs can now provide end-users with:


• Fully automated provisioning of Amazon S3, Windows NTFS, DFS and SharePoint 2010 storage via a self-service, business friendly UI in the browser, PowerShell and RESTful API.


• Access to file system capabilities from any computer, device, local and hosted apps via WebDAV with Single Sign On.


• Use of Microsoft Office hosted in data center or locally, and Office Web Apps in


the browser with any type of storage.


• Universal copy/paste, favourites & recently used, across different types of storage.


• Usage tracking, managed permissions and printing using automated operations across different types of storage and access methods.


• For legacy applications that don’t support Cloud storage, OS33 added a Drop to Amazon folder that will automatically synchronise legacy application data with Amazon S3.


“There are many Cloud storage options optimised for specific needs such as mobility, reliability, cost savings, security and





applications to their customers. Silos created by multiple storage providers are now unified, and can be packaged, sold and delivered as part of the OS33 platform. With OS33 Cloud Drive integration, files are universally accessible from a simple, easy-to-use unified file system that spans most devices, operating systems, browsers and applications.


“We’ve been working hard on breaking down some of the data silos that we know exist there today. User data is a key asset to any business and we’re committed to making it always available and easily accessible wherever and whenever it’s needed. Our approach is to step back, use some common sense, apply Internet standards, and deliver something end-users want to use.“ said Alex Osipov, OS33 chief

more,” said Jacob Kazakevich, OS33 president. “Service Providers have been asking us to develop technology which would allow them to deploy and sell storage resources across multiple platforms using our Cloud Control Panel. OS33 Cloud Drive does just that. In addition, it provides end- users with universal access to their data directly from our Webtop whether the files are stored in their private Cloud, in SharePoint, or Amazon S3.”


OS33’s ability to take advantage of various storage technologies and unify them in the OS33 Webtop, now provides MSPs with the ability to act as Cloud Brokers, offering an even greater variety of services and


technology officer. “As part of testing Cloud Drive with our early adopters group for the past two months, we’ve found there is a lot of excitement about the technology. Our MSPs and end-users are finding interesting uses we haven’t even thought about.”


The OS33 platform enables MSPs to deliver and sell Cloud-based infrastructure, applications, and web-based desktops (Webtops) from a single interface. Now with OS33 Cloud Drive technology, MSPs can better meet their users’ growing storage needs by blending solutions from multiple cloud storage providers.
