Mspkart’s On-Premise Storage(OPS) Solution is a self-hosted file sync and share server. This is very similar to any Dropbox.But your own storage solution and no monthly subscription involved. It provides access to your data through a web interface, sync clients, while providing a platform to view, sync and share across devices easily – all under your control. OPS open architecture is extensible via a simple but powerful API for applications and plugins and it works with any storage.
With so many services like iCloud and Dropbox getting hacked these days, it’s no surprise that more people want to pull their data off the cloud. Instead of missing out on those great syncing features, though, you can create your own cloud storage service that you control with OPS. With it, you’ll get syncing files, notes, calendars, and more.
FEATURES OF OPS
Improvements for Users
Improved File Sharing:
The sharing code has been dramatically enhanced, streamlined and improved, making sharing more flexible, faster and accessible via the OPS API. These include:
- Sharing by group – Turn sharing off/on based on group.
- File Filters – See “files shared with me”, “files I shared”, and “files shared with link” from the file view in the web browser.
- Shared file owner – The file owner’s name is displayed on the file browser when a file is shared with you
- Force Password – Admins can force users to set a password when they create shared links which can ensure that files shared outside of OPS are properly secured.
- Share Link Default and Max Expiration – Admins can require users to set a password or an expiration date for the link.
- No more Shared Folder – The “Shared” folder has been removed; instead, shared files ar
Improved Document Capabilities:
In addition to the existing ability to collaboratively edit .odt files within the web browser, OPS can now convert Microsoft Word documents on the fly for online editing. You can open a Word doc online, edit it live with other users in the browser, and close it again – it will convert back to Word. And, it will be saved back to your desktop with the changes embedded.
File Activity Notification
The Activities view has been streamlined, giving a cleaner and more efficient look. You can now select the activities you want to record in your activity stream and set preferences for email notifications if:
- A file or folder is shared with you
- A new file or folder is created inside a shared folder
- A file or folder is changed inside a shared folder
- A file or folder has been deleted from inside a shared folder
Emails can be sent to you on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule.
New Files View:
The new user interface of the Files app gives a much improved user experience with changes including:
- Lazy loading files – Files are loaded using “lazy loading” which loads files as you scroll down the page, providing faster and more responsive access.
- File Sorting – Files can be sorted in the web browser by name, size and last modified time.
- Storage Location Report – An “external storage” filter enables users to filter files based on external storage location, such as ftp, S3, Swift, Dropbox, Google Drive and more.
Mobile Web Browser Support:
OPS now features a web interface usable on most tablet and mobile browsers. This brings support to devices that don’t have a native app – like Microsoft Phone and Blackberry OS devices – as well as providing extra options for accessing files stored in OPS.
Password Strength Indicator:
When setting up a password in OPS, a password strength indicator helps users choose stronger, more secure passwords.
Significant Speed Improvement:
Improvements for Administrators
New User Management:
Admins can take advantage of the improved capabilities for more easily managing users:
- View all OPS users in a single scrolling window
- Search by user display name using the new text filter
- Filter user lists by group
- See user attributes including the storage location and last login time
- Add new groups with a click of a button.
- Add or edit users and user attributes ( i.e. group memberships, quota, and group admin rights) with improved ease and speed
- Enable apps by group
External Storage Access:
The external storage app provides access to storage locations including FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, sFTP, Swift, S3, WebDAV, SMB/CIFS and more. Admins can specify which storage type can be added by end users in their personal tab, providing more granular control over external storage mounts.
Object Stores as Primary Storage:
OPS can now leverage SWIFT object stores as primary storage for OPS files. Now users can choose the best option for their specific need: local storage, network filesystem mounts, or SWIFT object stores.
Antivirus Scanner Integration
The Antivirus app (with minor customization) may be used with external virus scanners (rather than the default CLAM AV) in scanning files as they arrive on the server.
Active Directory or LDAP Enhancements:
Several improvements have been made to the LDAP and Active Directory plug in application, improving both the performance of the application as well as the compatibility with openLDAP, AD and other vendors. For example, the plug-in can now manage paginated responses to handle tens of thousands of users that are part of a single flat OU.
SMTP Config Wizard:
It is now simpler than ever to connect OPS to an email server in a simple GUI config wizard, enabling OPS to send automated messages to users – such as the notifications from the Activities app. OPS can connect via PHP or using standard SMTP.
Editable Email Templates
Edit the email templates that OPS sends for lost password recovery (if using the OPS user management), as well as the template for sending shared files and share links.
Upgrade / Migration Routine Script:
Thanks to improvements in the upgrade tool, the upgrade from previous OPS versions to OPS 7 will happen more quickly. Additionally, admins can execute scripts to migrate from one database to another – as part of the command line tools included with OPS. For example, a user may migrate from SQLite to MySQL using these tools.
Quota Improvements(Including External Storage):
Admins can set a configuration switch in the OPS config file to include or exclude external storage locations in the calculation of user quota.
- One server with at least 2 CPU cores, 8GB RAM, local storage as needed.This can be on-premise server or AWS or Microsoft Azure Cloud server)
