new value from your existing storage

Works with Existing Storage

DataNow isn’t about selling you more storage in the data center or in the cloud. It’s about making what you have easier–and more secure–to use in today’s multi-device work environments. DataNow does that by:

  • Integrating with your existing Active Directory environment to establish baseline user data access entitlements.
  • Giving users a simple, unified method of accessing home directories, file shares, Microsoft SharePoint, and WebDAV servers from Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and the web.

As a turn-key virtual appliance, DataNow can be deployed in your data center in minutes. Instantly unlock more use out of your existing storage.


Simple and Convenient for Users

Users simply crave simplicity and reliability. DataNow brings this to your existing storage through:

  • Intuitive, native user experience.
  • End-to-end security that doesn’t force users to jump through VPN hoops.
  • Ultra-reliable, fast file synchronization.
  • No requirement to migrate data or change existing workflows.
  • Total file sync coverage, including Outlook PST files.
