FileCloud – the Vaultize Alternative & More
Cloud computing is the latest trend in IT. When most people think of computer resources within the cloud, the likes of Google drive and Amazon web service comes to mind with applications and infrastructure being shared by many. Cloud computing has proven to be a good alternative for organizations, because it generates flexibility and reduces costs. However, as we continue discussing public clouds, enterprise IT continues to gravitate towards Private clouds in a big way. This is mainly because most organizations are not comfortable with the idea of sharing resources with an unknown number of clients.
Finding a private cloud is not as simple as it seems. Currently, no relevant standards exist and what passes as the best private cloud seems to be in the eye of the beholder. No private cloud apps are the same; some are simple while others are complex. Knowing all your available options is the best way to find the best one.
Vaultize has been branded as a cloud-based backup solution specifically designed for enterprises. Most cloud backup service providers are designed for consumers; and their business editions are simply extensions of consumer offerings. This is why Vaultize stands out.
Their private cloud solution is a software based solution that is deployed at the organizations premise and offers a unified platform for sync, file sharing, endpoint encryption, endpoint backup, and any-time/anywhere access to data on corporate file servers; everything with complete enterprise visibility and control.

However, what if your private cloud needs surpasses basic features like data backup.

What if there was a private cloud solution that offered all the features of a public cloud coupled with all the perks of a private cloud?
