TeamDrive’s secure synchronization and collaboration solution

Today’s agile enterprise needs to find ways to enable its people to share documents easily
San Francisco, CA and Hamburg, Germany – 26th October 2011

Scality Organic storage pioneer Scality and synchronization and collaboration specialist TeamDrive today announced the integration of Scality’s cloud storage with TeamDrive’s secure synchronization and collaboration solution. The result, a complete file-sharing and synchronization solution for private clouds, is aimed squarely at customers that want to provide a high degree of collaboration functionality and mobility, while also maintaining total security of data by encrypting data transfer and keeping it on their own infrastructure.

“Today’s agile enterprise needs to find ways to enable its people to share documents easily, which is a real challenge to do securely. While there are public cloud offerings for sharing, many enterprises are required to maintain total control of their data and keep it from leaving their network – no matter how secure that public cloud appears to be. The service offered by Scality and TeamDrive delivers a secure, cost-efficient and user-friendly alternative,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s CEO.

“As a result of the Scality integration, we can offer our customers greater options for storage with the TeamDrive Cloud and Enterprise Hosting environment,” said Volker Oboda, TeamDrive CEO. “The Scality option provides globally cost-effective storage including high performance, robust data protection, high availability, and scalability. And, since Scality storage can be located on-premises or in Scality-powered public clouds, deployment options are flexible, in line with the TeamDrive offering.”

In the solution, Scality contributes its robust, scalable, storage capabilities, while TeamDrive’s built-in encryption technology ensures each user maintains total control over his/her documents.

The solution benefits from the highest possible standards of security. TeamDrive’s hosting services have been awarded the ‘Seal of Privacy’ for its solutions by Germany’s Data Protection Commissioner’s Office (the ULD).

The new Scality TeamDrive solution will be demonstrated publicly for the first time at the “SNW – Powering the Cloud” event in Frankfurt, Germany [November 2nd–3rd 2011] on the Scality booth (56).


Abstract: Today, with the sprawl of data and the need for mobility, Collaborators in an enterprise need a way to easily share files with each other. There are public offerings for this, but some enterprises need to maintain total ownership of their data and keep it from leaving their network, however supposedly secure the “public cloud” is. To achieve this, enterprises need to understand the challenges and requirements of such a service in order to offer a secure, cost-efficient and user-friendly alternative to their collaborators.
