Pydio 7 Definitively Closes the Gap on Online File Sharing Services
Pydio 7 improves collaboration, sharing and scalability: including Workspaces, Inline-Editing, File Gateway and Pydio Booster.
Online Office Suite - increased collaboration
Through a new partnership with Collabora Productivity (the LibreOffice Cloud provider), Pydio 7 now combines file sharing, document editing and online collaboration. Users can now not only access documents online, but also co-author new content and work collaboratively.
File Gateway - increased Security
File Gateway is Pydio’s first SaaS offering. It removes the risk and complexity of sharing documents with external parties, by routing share links through a hosted proxy. The file gateway allows users to share documents with any third party, without exposing their server URL and compromising internal server security.
Pydio Booster - increased performance
Pydio Booster is an add-on server solution built in Go, the performant language developed by Google specifically for servers. It delivers major performance enhancements out-of-the box, for both small and large-scale deployments. Pydio is now able to delegate tasks to this new component, dramatically improving overall performance and scalability, while automating secure communication.
The Workspaces function allows Pydio 7 users to organise file sharing and online collaboration by project, team or department. Admins are able to manage access, create specific rules, and define folder permissions within each individual “Workspace”, without the need to create a new Pydio instance.
Already available for Dropbox, Pydio users can now connect their OneDrive accounts to Pydio (paid plugin). Basically, Pydio allows you to mount external storage services as secondary storage drivers. You can also allow your users to mount their own external storage. This new connector is very useful for organisations looking to implement both public and private cloud storages for their file sharing solution.
Pydio 7 also sees major enhancements to its Enterprise Distribution, which builds on the full-featured Community Edition with an additional dashboard and plugins for simplifying large-scale deployment, administration, security and integration. The new release brings many new features in this additional dashboard, as well as new plugins and a fully revamped LDAP plugin including ready-to-use templates for most common directories.
Many under-the-hood improvements
Pydio 7 also sees major enhancements under-the-hood : PHP code underwent a massive rewrite, following the PSR-7 pattern and using the Zend / Diactoros implementation.
Our REST API was also fully rewritten strictly following RESTful specifications and OpenAPI description file
