Face to face in the news:
2016 - Box Zones will let you choose storage from IBM and AWS to stand out over Huddle
Enterprise file collaboration service Box announced Box Zones - a product that lets customers choose a storage component from another vendor, enabling customers to store files in-country when their privacy laws require it. Initially it will work on Amazon Web Services in Ireland, Germany, Japan and Singapore, but the plan is to expand that over time adding new zones using IBM data centers later this year. Eventually Box hopes to make it flexible enough to add any approved storage you like. The product will allow customers in Asia, the Middle East and Europe with legal and regulatory requirements to store their content in-country using third-party storage, and still use the Box service and everything else it brings to the table.
2014 - Enterprise cloud collaboration provider Huddle raises $51M to strike back at Box
Huddle, the enterprise cloud collaboration provider that competes with the likes of Microsoft’s Office 365, is today announcing that it has raised another $51 million in funding, which was made at a company valuation of between $250 million and $300 million. The reason for Huddle’s success appears to be two-fold: platform and customer base. On the first of these, Huddle was one of the early movers in developing a platform where companies can not only share and exchange files with one another, but also work on them together, with versioning control and other ways of tracking changes built into the platform. Secure services on the platform include Team collaboration, file sharing, task management, social collaboration and mobile collaboration, integrating with a number of third party apps and supporting multiple other platforms including Office, SharePoint, and SalesForce.
