CEO and founder Andrew Schwabe saw a significant need for an open cloud based SAAS offering to bridge the gap between proprietary and cloud storage technologies. "Small businesses can now use low-cost cloud and Internet storage as their document management system," Schwabe said, "while enterprises get a solution that works with their existing systems."
CloudPointe user experiences have been "really positive." Jason O'Mara, a developer from Stream Companies, says "the interface is very intuitive" and the embedding capability is "really cool and easy to setup."
The service offers document management features for low-cost storage solutions and preserves and extends existing document management solutions for ease of collaboration with users outside of the enterprise.
Data duplication and migration is one of the biggest hurdles companies have when expanding into cloud storage. Andrew Reichman from Forrester Research wrote in the article, 'Business Users Are Not Ready for Cloud Storage,' that this and other factors result in companies that "have little interest in MOVING their data to the cloud." CloudPointe fills this gap by offering a solution that connects to proprietary storage as well as cloud storage. Companies can continue to leverage their infrastructure investment while gaining the benefits of cloud-connected technology.
CloudPointe is the first cloud based middleware company that offers a SAAS based collaboration platform designed to provide intelligent document management class tools on top of low cost Internet storage as well as connectors for enterprise storage for all data types. CloudPointe released a free edition of the service that uses FTP storage. More information is available on the CloudPointe website at www.cloudxy.com. Follow CloudPointe on Facebook and Twitter.
