Novell iFolder 3.0 includes several important new features.
Multiple iFolders: A user creates as many iFolders as desired and manages each one separately. Each iFolder functions independently to synchronize its own set of files. Users specify the local path for each iFolder.
Shared iFolders: Each iFolder can be kept private or shared with a different group of users. For a shared iFolder, the owner or a member with the Full Control right controls who participates in the iFolder and the level of access granted to each member, such as Full Control, Read/Write, or Read Only.
Centralized iFolder Synchronization and Storage: iFolder data is automatically synchronized by the iFolder client to the iFolder enterprise server over an IP network. The enterprise server stores files for each iFolder, then synchronizes them to other member computers. Encryption is supported for data transfers. Administrators control whether data is transported securely with HTTPS (SSL) connections during synchronization, or if data is transported with standard HTTP BASIC connections.
Multiple iFolder Accounts: Users can concurrently access iFolder accounts on different servers.
Web Access to iFolders: Users access their iFolder enterprise server accounts from any computer with Internet access. They create subdirectories, upload files, and download files to any of their iFolders. All iFolders for the account are available, whether the user is the owner or a member.
Client-Side APIs: Almost every function an end user can accomplish through the UI is exposed as an API. This allows third-party developers to more easily integrate their applications with iFolder and gives organizations the tools they need to customize iFolder.
