Key Features

General Features (applies to all the DNN Folder Providers)

  • Easy to integrate into your DNN or Evoq Installation (it is a set of folder providers).
  • This is the first product of this category that was ever released.
  • Allows core and 3rd party modules to utilize externally-persisted files (on Microsoft Azure, BOX, Amazon S3, Dropbox, FTP, Windows UNC, Rackspace Cloud Files, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.) without any modification.
  • Easily tie-in cloud-based, external file systems
  • It is the perfect foundation for your DNN Documents Manager powered by our DNN UserFiles module.
  • Allows multiple instances of all providers pointing to different storage locations. This means, that you can connect your site to different sources of files, even of the same kind. E.g. you can have many different Windows Azure (on different subscriptions/containers), Amazon S3 (each one to different buckets), Dropbox connections (each one to different Dropbox accounts), BOX connections (including the free 5Gb accounts), many different FTP connections, Rackspace Cloud Files (with its built-in CDN features), multiple Google Drive / Google Docs accounts, any OneDrive (SkyDrive) account, and various local or network paths mapped (Windows UNC).
  • Option for Read Only access: If it is needed or desired, it allows you to connect to a data source in 'read only' mode, ensuring that the connected storage will not be updated in any way.
  • "Use Redirect Url" setting: This allow having always valid URLs for providers generating time limited Urls.
  • You have fine control over how the URLs for the files will be provided.
  • Option to hide the file's true location. Regardless of the storage provider's accessibility settings, the files will act like served directly from your web site (not linked from their real location).
    When this option is enabled, end users will never know where the files are truly located.
  • Files are stored with the proper 'Content Type' (MIME type) set.
  • "Lock Folder Mappings" setting. When enabled, only host users can add or edit folder types.
  • Behind the scenes DNNGlobalStorage is doing things impossible to do manually linking to the remote locations (Azure, S3, Dropbox, FTP, BOX, etc.) I.e. the files do not have to be set for anonymous (public) access, and DNNGlobalStorage can generate secure links for them.
  • Customizable root folder: For all folder providers, you can choose which (remote) folder you would like to act as the root folder regarding the DNN site.
  • Built-in auto-tuning performance hints (catching features) for cloud connections (e.g. Dropbox). There is no need to setup explicit settings.
  • It integrates with the DNN 6+ Instrumentation (Log4Net) feature, for easy logging and troubleshooting.
  • User Interface 100% localizable.
  • It does not require any special web browser configuration (like Popups enabled).
  • Minimal dependency on common 3rd. party libraries. This avoids very common problems that many DNN extensions have (one breaks another because it overwrites a common library with an incompatible version. Many libraries, even being compatible are signed, which means an extension will not work with other version different from the one being utilized when it was built. You'll not have this problem with DNNGlobalStorage.
  • It does work on 'medium trust' hosting environments. (*)
  • It does work under .NET 3.5 (2.0), .NET 4.0 or later.
  • About Evotiva: Since 2005, providing original products, and outstanding support. Check out our reviews.
