Gladinet Cloud New Feature Updates

Image
Gladinet is doing agile software development. Every week, there is some enhancements on the Gladinet Cloud (which doesn’t require client binary software download). Every month, there will be some enhancements on the client binaries that you can download and use. This article will document some of the new features in the Gladinet Cloud Team Edition.Start of Group Policy – In the CloudWhen you  have a team of users that are using the same Gladinet Cloud service and share the team work space, you would like to be able to set a bunch of settings for each of the individual users. In the old LAN (Local Area Network) environment, it was the user policy and group policy that we are familiar with. Now with Cloud Storage and Web based browser and management, it is also possible to set the settings for the users. Starting this week, you will see the policy settings appear in the Gladinet Cloud Web Management front. Over time, you will see more and more settings coming into Group Policy.

OpenStack Based Team Workspace Solution

With cloud storage getting more popular, many businesses are looking to online storage for a team workspace solution. Traditionally these solutions are provided by Windows File Server and SharePoint Server, thus the team workspace solution was limited to a local area network environment.
When enterprises are looking for the team workspace solution in the new cloud storage context, many are still looking because they want to have full control of their data.  Many service providers are looking too because they want to enter the market with a online storage solution with team workspace features.
With OpenStack and Gladinet Team Edition, it is possible to build a windows file server/SharePoint server replacement solution in the cloud for enterprises and for service providers.
The combined solution provides the following benefits.
1. Web Browser Based Access to Files and Folders.

Worked out the math, it takes Amazon S3 247 days to double. So it doubles every 8 months.
We have been following it for a while and it is almost like a broken record now. Congratulations to the growth of S3 and the validation of cloud storage market.

This article will now discuss more about its Compatibles.
