Cloud Services Broker
A core component of the Cloud Services Platform, the Cloud broker aggregates various public cloud storage and content repositories and provides a unified view with complete metadata and indices, crossed-cloud features like searching, sharing, editing and content mesh-up. Sources include public cloud storage like Box, Dropbox, Facebook, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and others. Licensing this capability allows partners to minimize internal resources needed to build and maintain external APIs and indices.
Multi-cloud Direct Sync
This technology allows content stored on a flash drive to be synced automatically with cloud storage facilities transparently once connected to a PC. The technology launches a transient program that executes on the PC, connects to selected cloud storage providers, and manages the content and connection without any user interaction. Added to a service, the multi-cloud direct sync can protect users and their content more completely when they are traveling.
