Today VMware announced Project Octopus Beta is open for all. Project Octopus can be seen as Dropbox for the Enterprise. It allows users to access data from anywhere and any device. IT department has control over who is able to access data, can set quota’s and can wipe the data from devices remotely when the device is lost or stolen.
Deployment is using a virtual appliance running on vSphere. All data stays in the datacenter of the organization unlike Dropbox.
The beta is open to all and will last through VMworld. Due to limited support resources, priority will be placed on customers with active engagements.
