Collaboration software vendor Open-Xchange added cloud storage to its offerings to allow users to sync files, folders, documents and pictures.

The company's new OX Drive will be available fully integrated with OX App Suite, a browser-based productivity suite that provides tools for managing email documents, calendar and social network feeds, it said Wednesday. The cloud storage will soon also be available as stand-alone product, it added.

OX Drive will offer file syncing and collaboration features, both in-browser and with native applications available for Android, iOS, Windows 7/8 and OS X devices, Open-Xchange said.

Users will be able to view, edit and share their documents and pictures anytime, anyplace, it said. Document editing will be possible in combination with its in-browser word processing tool with editing capabilities, called OX Text, that can also be integrated with App Suite.

Open-Xchange offers its services to service providers like ISPs, hosting providers, telecom operators and system integrators, who can offer it to their customers in turn under their own brand, the company said.

By adding OX Drive to its offerings, Open-Xchange wants to enable service providers to meet customer demand for creating and sharing files across multiple devices and operating systems, it said. Open-Xchange's services are also meant to give service providers a chance to compete with offerings from the likes of Amazon, Apple, Google and Microsoft, it added.

Open-Xchange in Nuremberg, Germany, received a US$20 million investment last July that it is using to speed up feature rollouts for its Web-based office suite.

Top 15 Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017

​The New Year brings the usual new round of humdrum technology predictions, glaringly general, unashamedly safe and perpetually predictable. But while the industry no longer sees value in “cloud is now the norm” type projections, value can be found in following developments of the year previous, analysing behaviours and patterns to formulate a plan for the 12 months ahead. Consequently, here’s the top Kiwi tech storylines to follow in 2017...
