Dropbox like functionality for corporate use

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

Is there a NetApp product or service offering that would allow my sales force to VPN in and have a Dropbox like repository of their confidential customer data? I am open to any suggestions of any products you have used. My challenge is that I am a new network admin for a worldwide organization and using any "cloud" based services other than ones we can control are not an option.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

If connectivity through VPN is a requirement for security purposes, then any old network share would work. VPN in, access share.

Dropbox for the enterprise: VMware is currently underway to bring a dropbox-like software for the enterprise. The project is called Project Octopus http://www.vmwareoctopus.com/

Re: Dropbox like functionality for corporate use

I agree something like Project Octopus can become a close dropbox equivalent.

Personally I don't love Windows local synchronisation of a network share, but technically speaking it ticks one of the key boxes of a dropbox-like functionality: the same file can be accessed online & offline & will be automatically updated, should a change to it be made.

Regards,

Radek

Maybe not from NetApp....

Have a look at http://www.teamdrive.com/ and give it a try.

You can manage your own Cloud System for the Sharing Service and place it on a NetApp System ;-)

Sorry, we do not have sharepoint as of yet. But thank you for replying.

That looks like a viable option. I'll look into it and let you know. Thank you all for your support and help!

You can use:
