amazon-zocalo18 Jul 2014
Amazon ZocaloWhile busy coding away on some API endpoints and refactoring some code and making some schema changes, I realised I had not opened my email client all day and after a quick scan for anything requiring my immediate attention I noticed that Amazon had given me early access to the new Zocalo product.
First thoughtsInitially I thought this is Dropbox with Sharepoint and that with web, mobile apps, Windows and Mac clients with promises of browser plugins this could be pretty cool.
“Amazon Zocalo is a fully managed, secure enterprise storage and sharing service with strong administrative controls and feedback capabilities that improve user productivity.”
- typical amazon storage in the cloud
- low cost initially if you are a start up for example
- easy to get started
- most importantly active directory support
Active DirectoryAmazon Zocalo can integrate with your existing Active Directory. This means that your users can easily access Amazon Zocalo using their existing Active Directory credentials. This is a big win for the enterprise.
Amazon WorkspacesNot 100 percent sure but when linked to Amazon Workspaces you could have a team all working on a Windows 7 experience with office apps and Zocola.
More later when not as busy!In the meantime have a read of the docs and look at some screenshots of the iPad app. Ok break over back to the code!
