[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - SMEStorage and WebHostingBuzz today announced that they were partnering to offer SMB users the ability to implement a managed Cloud File Server environment for their business.
SMEStorage CEO Ian Osborne stated, "We are excited about this partnership with WebHostingBuzz. It will enable us to offer customers who wish to embrace SaaS and Cloud, but who want, or need, their own separate managed environment away from a multi-tenant ecosystem."
"We find a great percentage of our customer who want to embrace SaaS and cloud require a dedicated cloud infrastructure instance, either due to industry legislation or other company policies."
"Businesses will be able to get a fully provisioned Cloud File Server on WebHostingBuzz infrastructure which provides the ability to support organisations who want to embrace an 'always on' File Server with client desktop cloud file integration with Windows, Mac and Linux systems."
"Organisations can also leverage the rapid growth in mobility and mobile working by using sophisticated mobile clients for iPhone/iPad, Android, and BlackBerry, with Windows Mobile 7 also being released soon."
"The solution is akin to being your own company cloud storage ISP with a fully fledged suite of tools and sophistication's such as file permissions, file locking, public/private encryption, managed file expiry and much more," concluded Osborne.
SMEStorage provide an 'Open' Cloud Platform in which file meta-data is synchronised but all files continue to reside on the original storage platform. In this way SMEStorage is able to offer value added services and clients to existing cloud storage providers, and also enables us to provide a single cloud file system which enables files to be managed from one cloud file tree. SMEStorage focus is on providing Open Cloud Solutions, Data Access and Services for individuals and small businesses, but can also offer a dedicated package in which the data is stored on Amazon S3. The Amazon S3 cloud is one of the most reliable storage service available on the offsite storage market today. SMEStorage provides a rich client Web UI, Windows tooling, Mac and Linux tools, as well as many channels to access your data such as the iPhone, Google Gadget, Firefox Plug-In, Facebook and integration with other products such as Microsoft Office and Open Office.
