ShareFile StorageZones Controller v5.1

Citrix has release today ShareFile StorageZones Controller v5.1

ShareFile StorageZones Controller extends the ShareFile Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud storage by providing your ShareFile account with private data storage, referred to as StorageZones for ShareFile Data. Managing your own data storage enables you to meet regulatory compliance requirements and to locate the storage close to users for optimized performance.

StorageZones Controller also provides users with secure access to SharePoint sites and network file shares through StorageZone Connectors. Connected file shares can include the same network “home” drives used in Citrix XenDesktop or XenApp environments. StorageZone Connectors enable you to provide secure mobile access to data residing behind your corporate firewall without the need to migrate data to the cloud.

What’s New in StorageZones Controller 5.1
  • Direct to File Support for On-Prem: Office mobile apps will be able to use the ‘direct to file’ integration where the Microsoft app opens and saves files in ShareFile On-Premise zones. This will tentatively be available for ShareFile iOS by mid-October.
  • Heartbeat Reliability Improvements: This update improves the reliability of heartbeat.aspx and resolves the issue of when a local config service is not reachable due to authentication issues but the heartbeat still responded with ‘Online’. We will now check connectivity before reporting the status.
  • WOPI Server fixes: WOPI server will now use the web proxy settings configured with SZC.
  • Security Fixes: This release contains fixes around security, performance, and reliability.
