ANN ARBOR — BlueThread Technologies Inc., an Ann Arbor-based content management software developer, Tuesday announced that it will unveil Skybrary, a cloud content management system, at the Cloud Computing Conference & Expo 2012 to be held at the New York City Javits Center in June.
Skybrary is a software-only system designed to accelerate the adoption of Cloud Storage, Collaboration, and Content Management Services. Its distributed architecture enables large volumes of content and related object data to be efficiently moved between supported content platforms, whether they reside on-premises or in the Cloud.
“Organizations want to leverage cloud technologies. However, there are risks,” said Rob D’Oria, BlueThread CTO and co-founder. “Who will be the winners, losers and new Cloud challengers? How do I move large volumes of content to and within the cloud in reasonable timeframes? How do I retain related object data — metadata, security, tags, and comments — as content is moved from one service provider to another? How do I secure and protect my content in the cloud? …and so on.”
D’Oria said Skybrary allows large volumes of content to be moved to and within the cloud without risk of loss of metadata or security, offering “organizations with the flexibility to manage all of their content no matter where it’s stored.”
The initial release is targeted to include two-way connectors for Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365, Google Docs, Box, Amazon S3, EMC Atmos, Windows Azure, Microsoft SkyDrive and File-shares. Additional content platform connectors will be available in subsequent releases. In addition to its comprehensive migration capabilities, Skybrary also includes standard user functions such as aggregated view and federated search features via an Explorer-like interface.
While the focus of the initial release is on businesses of all size, future releases will be targeted toward consumers as well as the introduction of a SaaS model. Learn more at www.skybrary.com.
