StorageEdge now provides File Share Integration

San Ramon, California - August 02, 2012 - Alachisoft is pleased to announce the release of StorageEdge 3.4 Service Pack 1.

StorageEdge 3.4 SP1 has strengthened its integration with File Share based documents. If your organization has other File Share based document management systems and you're not ready to migrate them all to SharePoint then simply use StorageEdge to integrate SharePoint with these legacy File Share documents. 

StorageEdge lets you create separate document libraries in SharePoint that point to these File Share storage documents. StorageEdge then creates meta-data in SharePoint content database so as to allow SharePoint to index these documents and let you search them just like any other SharePoint document.

Features and Benefits:

  • Two-way Synchronization: StorageEdge allows you to edit documents either from within SharePoint or from outside and all those changes are made directly to the File Share storage.
  • Add, Read, Check-out, and Check-in docs: You can add documents to you document library in SharePoint and they are added directly to the File Share storage. You can also read, check-out, and check-in these docs and the File Share storage is updated.
  • File versioning: StorageEdge lets you keep older versions of the File Share documents in a separate File Share storage and the latest version is updated to the main File Share storage.
  • Single library multiple integration: Create a document library in SharePoint and point individual folders inside it to different File Share storage devices.
  • Auto Directory-Structure creation: Once a drive is configured to be integrated with a Documents library in SharePoint, it reflects all the files and folders in it as if they were uploaded there.

StorageEdge 3.4 SP1 allows its users to link the documents present on file share to SharePoint without the need of uploading them. It also helps in linking all newly uploaded BLOBs with linker profile using dual mode linker, making mirrors of databases, keeping multiple versions of linked files and having extra control over jobs and their history with Job Monitor.

Alachisoft is very confident that StorageEdge 3.4 SP1, like its previous releases and other Alachisoft products, will also win the trust of the developers and IT management as it has a lot to offer to the SharePoint community. Iqbal Khan, President & Technology Evangelist at Alachisoft, while commenting on the release said "I am very excited about StorageEdge release and hoping that it will perform according to the expectations. Storage cost has become the major concerns of many organizations so the multi-tier technology of StorageEdge will help them to reduce their cost hence winning the trust of the customers.”  

StorageEdge has three editions, each with different set of features, meant for distinct market segments. It has a free Express edition with basic features for startups and small offices using Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) while the Standard and the Enterprise editions come with a lot more features and a free 60 day trial period.
