Varaani and Ilona IT to offer storage solution for schools

Varaani starts to offer the Cloud Hub digital storage solution for schools in collaboration with a leading Finnish school IT provider Ilona IT. The offering will bring a multi terabyte storage capacity for all digitally created content in the schools. The solution offers the best parts of the cloud services with support for mobile devices, while the content remains within in the school network and is backed up to the Varaani online backup serves in Finland.

Every school produces huge amounts of digital content as part of the projects with computers and mobile devices. This creates an immediate need for a secure digital storage where to save the temporary files and the final project outcomes. The work groups need a shared space to access the files and share the final output. The school needs a place to archive the schools new and growing digital history. The copyright and content protection regulations also often demand that the created content needs to remain in a certain country or region.

It seamlessly integrates local Network Attached Storage device, online backup, remote access, and a media server into one user experience.
