The cloudHQ service uses automatic replication to copy data from one cloud service to another. The objective of cloudHQ is to provide data synchronization to companies for several purposes:
cloudHQ is a cloud service that is compatible with the following cloud apps: "Google Drive, Microsoft Outlook 365, "Amazon S3, "Egnyte, "Amazon Cloud Drive, "Microsoft OneNote, "Box.com, "Evernote, "Dropbox, Inc, "Basecamp Classic, "SugarSync, "Gmail, "Google Calendar, "Google Contacts, "Microsoft Sharepoint, and "Yandex.
One of the major drawbacks for company leaders when making the decision to migrate to the cloud is the lack of cloud integration. The cloudHQ service provides integration and the ability to move data in an efficient manner between multiple cloud services. It also allows companies to create a centralized database of data replicated from multiple cloud services for organization and simple searching.
This is an example of how cloudHQ works:
The cloudHQ service runs automatically, constantly monitoring the user-specified cloud account for changes. When a new file is added, the file is instantly replicated to the secondary cloud account. All revisions made to existing files are also instantly replicated to the secondary cloud account.
When a sync pair is created in the cloudHQ service, users are given the option to choose between one-way sync or two-way sync.
One-way sync: Replication will occur from one main cloud service to a secondary account, but if files are added or revised in the secondary account, the changes will not be reflected back to the original account.
Two-way sync: All file additions and revisions made in the main account will be replicated to the secondary account. All file additions and revisions made in the secondary account will be replicated back to the main account. This creates an exact copy of data in both cloud accounts.
cloudHQ allows users to collaborate on files across multiple cloud platforms. For instance, if employees are working on files in SkyDrive, but they need to collaborate on them in Google Drive because it allows more users to simultaneously make revisions, cloudHQ makes this happen by replicating the files from SkyDrive to Google Drive where multiple users can collaborate on the files.
The cloudHQ backup service works by creating sync pairs between two cloud accounts. These cloud accounts can be through different services or the same service. For instance, data stored in Dropbox can be backed up to Box (or other cloud services), or it can be backed up to a separate Dropbox account. For security purposes, it is recommended that the secondary account does not use the same login authentication values as any other company account.
Here is an example of how cloudHQ works to prevent data loss:
