Storage Sync Offers Most Comprehensive File Sharing via Cloud and On-Premises Storage
LONDON, UK - July 23, 2014 - Egnyte, the leading provider of an enterprise file-sharing platform built from the cloud down, today announced it has extended the platform’s virtualization offerings to include support for Windows Hyper-V. Egnyte’s flagship hybrid solution Storage Sync integrated with Hyper-V enables customers to access, edit and share business files from any storage device deployed in a Windows environment. Compatible with Hyper-V, VMWare and its own native storage integrations, Egnyte now supports nearly all storage and virtual environments for businesses.
The powerful combination of Hyper-V with Egnyte Storage Sync is ideal for Windows administrators who want to cloud-enable existing Windows servers or other storage devices, and provide enterprise-class access and sharing to that data. Egnyte creates a unified platform for transparent access to mission-critical data stored behind the firewall across the corporate data center and to less sensitive files in the cloud. The leading approach combined with Hyper-V enables seamless multi-site collaboration from any device, regardless of where the files are physically stored.
“The Egnyte platform offers customers a choice for when, where and how they manage business files,” said Rajesh Ram, co-founder and VP of products at Egnyte. “Many of our customers’ IT solutions are deployed through Windows environments, and adding support for Hyper-V on our platform offers the flexibility of deployment options for accessing 100% of enterprise data.”
The integration with Hyper-V provides a cost-effective option for Windows environments to quickly enable the full range of file services, including file sync and share, cross-office collaboration, business continuity for the use of existing infrastructure, and data migration to the cloud. The addition of Hyper-V simplifies the deployment and maintenance for IT teams to effectively leverage their storage devices to manage, access and collaborate on files.
Storage Sync for Hyper-V is already deployed with select customers and will be generally available on July 30, 2014. For more details on Storage Sync, click here.
