Portal Architects releases Skybrary - Cross-platform Cloud Storage Librarian

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsoft SharePoint Conference -- Portal Architects, Inc. today announced the release of their new app, Skybrary.  Skybrary makes it incredibly easy for businesses and consumers alike to find, move, share and protect files across a variety of Cloud and/or on-premises storage systems.

Steve Woodward, Portal Architects CTO said; "Files are everywhere, PCs, corporate networks, FTP sites, SharePoint, Cloud storage providers, etc.  Skybrary merges and unifies content, no matter where it's stored, into one intuitive user-experience."

Woodward continues; "Skybrary is remarkably simple to setup and operate. Users merely link Skybrary to one or more of their supported storage platforms by just clicking on a button. Skybrary then automatically establishes secure connections to those systems using their existing account and login credentials. Prior operational knowledge of the storage platform is not required or necessary."

Mark Brazeau, Portal Architects co-founder adds; "Almost everyone wants to leverage the Cloud at some level but they're not sure where to begin or how to move existing files, let alone their related properties and folder structures. Skybrary mitigates these challenges, plus you're no longer forced to settle on one storage platform in order to unify content.  It also gives organizations the freedom to leverage the latest storage technologies without impacting the end-user experience."

Skybrary enables users to search across all linked systems in a single step. It also allows users to move files, folder structures (taxonomies) and document properties such as metadata to/from any storage system via drag and drop.

The initial beta release includes connectors for Microsoft® SharePoint®/Office 365®, Box®, DropBox®, Citrix® ShareFile®, Network File-shares and FTP Sites.  Additional storage connectors, "active" sharing/collaboration, government–strength file encryption, as well as support for mobile devices will be available early 2013.

While the focus of the initial release is on businesses of all sizes, future releases and features will be geared toward consumers as well as the introduction of a SaaS model. SharePoint Conference attendees can get an in-depth demonstration of Skybrary at the Skybrary booth.  Users can download the free version of Skybrary from the website late November.

The revocation of Safe Harbor has radically affected data sovereignty strategy in the cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Jeff Miller, Product Management at Cavirin Systems, discussed how to assess these changes across your own cloud strategy, and how you can mitigate risks previously covered under the agreement.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations unable to mobilize to protect themselves. The result: many enterprises face unnecessary risks to data loss and production downtime.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Raju Shreewastava, founder of Big Data Trunk, provided a fun and simple way to introduce Machine Leaning to anyone and everyone. He solved a machine learning problem and demonstrated an easy way to be able to do machine learning without even coding. Raju Shreewastava is the founder of Big Data Trunk (www.BigDataTrunk.com), a Big Data Training and consulting firm with offices in the United States. He previously led the data warehouse/business intelligence and Big Data teams at Autodesk. He is a contributing author of book on Azure and Big Data published by SAMS.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
