DCIG evaluated sixteen SDS-based file storage solutions for a multi-site file collaboration use-case across six different categories.  This report provides guidance on the TOP 5 enterprise-class SDS-based solutions organizations should consider that enhance file collaboration.  The report is available for free download.

In many organizations, core business processes rely on effective file-based collaboration. This was fine when most employees worked at a headquarters facility with fast network links to the enterprise data center and its filers. However, with an organization’s users now spanning the globe, legacy systems fail to meet the collaboration needs of this distributed workforce. This frustrates end users, wastes time and money, and creates multipl

e risks to the organization.

Many SDS-based file-storage solutions offer features that enhance file collaboration and bring multiple benefits, including:

  • Effective version control
  • Modern file collaboration
  • Reduced (need for) storage capacity
