Multiple users can manage a set of files, sharing and collaborating on them without actually moving the files from where they are stored or creating multiple versions of the same file. Collaboration is managed through a central file view (“Projects”) while access timeframes and permissions are enforced via the assigned “Roles.”“Mezeo’s Personal Cloud Storage solution enables SoftLayer to quickly and seamlessly offer a unique set of online file services with desktop, Web and mobile access.
