Bob Flynn Bob Flynn, Novell President and General Manager, announces the release of Novell Filr.

I am very excited to announce the release of Novell Filr. Novell Filr is a file-sharing solution that gives users access to their home folders, shared network folders and personal files from anywhere via desktops, laptops or mobile devices.

We know that you’re struggling with cloud-based file access solutions like Dropbox that put your data in insecure third-party storage. Novell Filr leverages our heritage as a leader in file and print solutions to provide mobile file access and sharing that keeps your data on-premise and IT in control. By leveraging your existing, on-premise file systems and associated access rights, Novell Filr delivers enterprise-class security that the competition simply can’t.

Together with Novell ZENworks Mobile Management and Novell iPrint, it is also an important part of our mobility solution. Very few of our competitors offer such a comprehensive set of mobile capabilities-and fewer still with an enterprise focus.

Novell Filr is a standalone product that works with directory services such as Microsoft Active Directory and NetIQ eDirectory, meaning you don’t need a Novell infrastructure to enjoy all the benefits of Novell Filr. Please take a minute to learn more at Novell Filr. Then download an evaluation and see how it can help your organization offer easy, mobile file access and sharing that keeps IT in control.

We look forward to showing you what Filr can do.

    Filr looks exciting and has a lot of potential. However in very limited testing thus far I’m finding that I could never recommend putting this into a production environment. It’s too unstable. Sync issues and unexpected file deletions, time stamp issues on Net folders. Corrupt sync metadata resulting in complete resync etc.. Simple to setup, but the desktop sync application is not as simple to understand as Dropbox and it’s difficult to use. When it doesn’t work, you don’t have any indicators of why.. It just doesn’t. I hope that this product will mature quickly because I see fantastic potential.
