WHAT'S IN STORE FOR BUSINESS NEXT
Enterprise IT has long focused on optimizing resources and taking advantage of cost effective third party solutions where they made sense. As cloud compute and cloud storage solutions matured, commoditization and competitive forces have begun a price war that IT must take advantage of. Amazon, Google and Microsoft all reduced prices between 25%-30% in Q4 2012 alone in what has become a race to the bottom.

As a result of the dropping third party cloud prices, we are very excited about our recent announcement around support for third party cloud services. By giving you the power to choose which cloud you want to store your files in, you can see a cost savings benefit from the ongoing price wars. Why did we decide to take this approach to enterprise file sharing?

REPORT FROM THE TRENCHES
Report from the trenches"Egnyte has saved my life! As a retail business owner with 6 locations and 50 employees with various job responsibilities distributed across those locations, efficient sharing of data is vital. Egnyte has provided the ideal solution; a hybrid solution. Our data can be accessed across our LAN locally where speed is required, but data can also be accessed remotely via the Egnyte cloud service from other locations as and when employees need access.

While Egnyte has not literally saved my life, it has saved me enormous time, stress, and money by providing a reliable cloud based hybrid service that works quietly in the background."
