EMC is updating its Syncplicity file sync and sharing service with new features shooting to attract more enterprise customers.
Intended to both augment the existing personal and business versions but also stand apart as its own product, Syncplicity Enterprise Edition has heightened storage, security, and IT management controls.
Based on the announcement, storage and IT management options are probably the two key areas that differeniate the enterprise-grade edition the most, while more security is sprinkled everywhere.
On the storage front, customers have a choice between cloud or on-premise storage using EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS or EMC Atmos object storage solutions.
With the on-premise choice, EMC asserted that files are never cached (or even passed through the cloud), thus boosting security levels there too.
As for IT, EMC has upgraded Syncplicity with BYOD (bring your own device) in mind. The big data and cloud giant is adding a link to its Documentum content management service. This has been done to protect corporate data and files being shared with large groups of users with support across all of their mobile devices -- both inside and outside of firewalls.
Generally available now, the EMC Enterprise Edition is also rolling out with new tiered pricing schemes designed for enterprise-scale deployments.
