Cloud Elements Documents Hub


Published on

The Cloud Elements Documents Hub is the first API that unifies Document Management across the industry’s leading cloud document and file storage services.

When provisioned via Cloud Elements, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SharePoint and SkyDrive automatically plug in with our enterprise-class monitoring and logging console - providing real-time visibility into the performance and availability of these services.

Cloud Elements’ “one-to-many” approach allows you write to one API and connect to all the leading services in the Documents Hub. A uniform API provides the ability to search, store, retrieve and manage documents and files across leading services.

Our Elements support your multi-tenant application. One Element manages connections with an unlimited number of “instances” of each service. So you can have thousands of Google Drive or Box accounts connecting with your application.

  24. 24. TESTIMONIALS Customers, Press and Analysts “The Cloud Elements Documents „Elements' take a huge amount of pain away from us. Not having to worry about ongoing API changes from the various cloud document storage providers means that we can integrate with their services much faster, on a larger scale and more reliably than we could on our own.” -Slidefish, CEO, Neil Smith "Using Cloud Elements' 'one-to-many' approach is allowing us to integrate to all of the leading cloud document services in less time than it would have taken us to integrate to just one service." -Marc Haverland, CTO, TrackVia “…some iPaaS solutions are no longer an ideal option for SMEs… Cloud Elements fills this gap with a lightweight and “one-to-many” approach that helps reduce the development effort involved in cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-on-premise integration.” -Saurabh Sharma, Senior Analyst, Ovum “If you‟re a developer who wants to connect your application to the popular cloud storage options, wouldn‟t you rather write to API as opposed to a half dozen or more?” Confidential & Proprietary -Barb Darrow, GigaOM
