SSO is now easier to set up for small and large organizations using Okta and Azure Active Directory. Support for additional identity providers may be added in future releases.
In this new implementation, manual synchronization of users and groups is a thing of the past. Instead, we use just-in-time provisioning to create users and groups automatically when users first log into the Filespace.
Lucid client version 2.1 and the Filespace 2.0 format introduced in April 2022 are required to take advantage of the new SSO implementation.
Our innovative file streaming technology has been re-architected from the ground up in this release to meet the ever-growing demand for active remote collaboration. Collaborating over long distances often exceeds hundreds of concurrent users, having access to hundreds of millions of files. Metadata Streaming, included in LucidLink Filespaces 2.0, introduces advanced algorithms that allow optimal metadata streaming over the Internet, using minimal system overhead and compressed traffic.
Local caches now only use the metadata they need, avoiding unnecessary use of local machine resources. And following our long-standing security model, the metadata remains fully encrypted, ensuring your projects remain in your hands. With Metadata Streaming now available to LucidLink Filespaces 2.0 users, real-time collaboration on massive media files–from home or the office–has never been more accessible in enterprise-scale organizations.
LucidLink Filespaces 2.0 is the perfect solution for creative teams growing quickly. New team members can now browse Filespaces of any size with lightning responsiveness, from hundreds to millions of files and more in storage.
The new Filespaces architecture gets your expanded creative team up-to-speed fast on projects without downtime or lengthy metadata synchronization.
LucidLink offers a unique way to preserve your projects using snapshots–instant restores of individual files or entire Filespaces. With LucidLink Snapshots offer a unique way to restore prior versions of individual files or revert entire Filespaces to earlier points. The new highly-scalable architecture of LucidLink Filespaces 2.0 makes instant access to snapshots now possible, accelerating the productivity of creative teams with large projects.
LucidLink global file locking gives Windows-based applications the native support required for serializing access across multiple users. The new architecture in LucidLink Filespaces 2.0 features state-of-the-art distributed global file locking that improves performance while being more resilient in a distributed environment.
Windows users will get a file locking experience on par with network-attached storage.
