How many minutes a week do you spend syncing and sharing? Uploading and downloading? Retrieving or redoing files after your not-so tech-savvy coworker gets into the shared folder? It may even be easier for you to count in hours instead of minutes. Waiting on files puts a halt on the individual, the organization, and the client’s expectations.
LucidLink, an innovator in cloud file storage created Filespaces specifically to solve the problem of distance & latency in cloud environments. This cloud-native solution acts and performs like your own local drive.
Unlike its cloud-enabled contemporaries, LucidLink works seamlessly like a network-attached storage or a storage volume on your hard drive, but in the cloud. For additional flexibility and usability, LucidLink works with any S3 compliant cloud storage you choose.
The sweet victory of on-demand data with LucidLink
The traditional cloud-sharing method uses sync & share, which creates local copies on all connected devices and then pushes out any changes through the cloud. This essentially means a constant communication of data between devices, which causes delays in synchronization and sharing of data. Not to mention, when sharing large files such as motion graphics, 4K footage, 8K video, and CAD designs, file sync and share solutions simply don’t work for high-performance workloads.
Remedying those shortcomings, LucidLink addresses the needs of creatives by cutting out the sync & share step completely. This makes the files that you want to access immediately available to edit and share, without slowing down your workflow. With LucidLink you no longer have to download and upload data through synchronization. LucidLink’s unique cloud-native architecture enables users to easily stream data, on-demand.
Eliminate the boundaries of “when” and “where”
Many of us were faced with a new challenge at the beginning of the decade that required creative solutions. COVID-19 forced businesses and creatives into a new reality which made normal execution and teamwork a challenge. These struggles are rooted by relying on hard drive delivery or sync & share technology as their method for moving projects through a production workflow. Organizations needed to find ways that allowed them to continue production at a high-level, while allowing real-time collaboration for all stakeholders involved.
LucidLink removes requirements to be connected to your VPN when accessing editing or sharing projects. This means that you can expand your creativity to anywhere in the world that gives you access to the internet, without being tied down with slow VPNs and LAN based protocols like SMB or NFS.
In fact, LucidLink is so advanced that it allows collaboration in real-time as if you were in the same location. This unique feature results in next-level performance that has customers like A&E Networks, Adobe, Vice, and WebMD embracing LucidLink’s solution. Allowing innovative minds to focus on creating amazing content is the primary reason why LucidLink is gaining support from some of the biggest names in the world. Antiquated methods of hard drives or sync & share just won’t cut it when you are focused on maximizing creative potential.
Backtrack to the future with snapshots
One fact of life is that mistakes happen. A second fact is once you hit save, there’s no going back. LucidLink solves this issue and adds to their impressive performance by providing immutable snapshots, which allow users to return to their file or Filespace from a previous point in time. Snapshots give users the freedom to make mistakes and refer back to previous versions of work with ease.
Snapshots make it easy to perform file recovery, roll back to previous versions and schedule automatic backups to run on a schedule of your choosing. Only data that’s changed between two snapshots is saved, resulting in more efficient space utilization. LucidLink’s snapshots are immutable and read-only, becoming one’s last line of defense against ransomware attacks.
How secure is secure?
Cybersecurity is an ever growing concern with digital information. The ability to access sensitive data and the measures put in place to keep that data secure is an ongoing effort across the globe. Additionally, the debate on what information should be accessible is an opinionated one.
One of the highlights of LucidLink is that it provides a premier security solution within its service, which uses a “Zero-Knowledge” security model. The user is the only one with access to username and password, which is the sole path to access the encrypted data on the object storage. LucidLink never has access to your data at any point in time, which keeps your data secure and out of the reach of unwanted entities.
If you search for Dropbox alternatives you will find a lot of copycats in the market, offering obsolete sync & share solutions with similar functionality and limitations. If you are truly serious about the way you work and create, the solution you need is LucidLink and their revolutionary way of streaming your data on-demand. There’s simply nothing like it.
Professionals all over the world are beginning to maximize their productivity, enhance collaborative efforts and unleash their full creative potential. Whether you want to create from the office, from home or from somewhere that no one can find you….LucidLink is the vehicle that takes your creativity anywhere you want to go.
