Over the years, we have seen many different legacy file sharing and repository systems being used by our large enterprise customers for some of their most crucial projects. These systems were all carrying similar shortcomings. Namely, their maintenance was extremely difficult, they were built using old, deprecated technologies, they weren’t secure enough, they could not provide the availability that today’s standards require and their user experience was far behind the convenience of what a new cloud solution could offer.
Our main idea was to replace all of the different legacy systems that were in place before and provide a single centralised and modern storage option that can securely store important official files and strategic documentation. The solution provides simultaneous access to hundreds of users that are scattered all around the globe in different locations and in multiple departments and is available 0-24h. The goal of the project was a web based application from which users can create and manage repositories in Google Cloud Storage, upload and manage data objects in those repositories with multi level user permissions and access credentials in place.
