Enterprise Content Collaboration Provider Huddle Using Storage Made Easy's Cloud Service Broker Platform

By Laura Stotler

Storage Made Easy (SME), a provider of a cloud service broker platform, announced that enterprise content collaboration provider Huddle has become a client. London-based SME's platform adds an abstraction layer on top of any information source, uniting cloud and data center services into a single environment.

The goal of SME's cloud service broker platform is to provide an enhanced single information cloud experience or to offer a federated view of data through the many applications supported by the solution. The platform and related services are provided as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or as a hybrid, on-premise solution. SME's solutions guarantee file access regardless of location or device and also offer high levels of management, security, compliance, audit and access services.

Huddle, which has headquarters in both London and San Francisco, specializes in enterprise content collaboration. The company offers an intelligent collaboration platform that enables organizations to store, discover, share and work on content with others securely, through the cloud. Huddle offers patent-pending technology that locates and recommends valuable information to users without the need to search. Customers include 80 percent of the Fortune 500 along with 80 percent of the U.K. central government, including companies like Diageo, Kia Motors and PwC.

Additional details about the nature of the new partnership between Huddle and SME will be forthcoming. Earlier this month, SME announced XTime was deploying the company's unified Cloud File Server platform. CRM and Web scheduling provider, XTime serves automotive service departments across North America. SME's solution is helping XTime configure public folders like HR, marketing or projects stored on Amazon S3 or other clouds, and also lets users add their own Google apps, Box and DropBox accounts.

“We recognize Huddle as the leader in cloud collaboration solutions and are pleased to be working on our first project,” said Jim Liddle, CEO of Storage Made Easy. “We look forward to being able to announce further details soon.”

“Customer experience is a priority for Huddle,” said Andy McLoughlin, EVP strategy and co-founder, Huddle. “Our relationship with Storage Made Easy will enable us to extend our world-class offering and provide our customers with increased functionality in the future.”
