FileShadow Delivers Machine Learning to End Users with Google Vision API


Visit FileShadow at Google Cloud Next '18, booth W2307, to see how
Google API is used to analyze images or scanned documents from files
across different cloud accounts and Drobo NAS appliances

This week at Google Cloud Next '18, FileShadow
will demonstrate the power of Google Compute Engine and the Google
Vision API to put machine learning in the hands of "prosumers" and small
businesses. The company utilizes the API to analyze files, including
images and scanned documents, to help users more effectively find files
that are stored on their various cloud storage accounts and Drobo
Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances.

FileShadow connects users' cloud storage accounts and onsite NAS
appliances into a single vault, stored on Wasabi's hot cloud storage,
making their files instantly searchable, regardless of source, and
"available for a lifetime." The service supports both online and onsite
systems, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, OneDrive for
Business, Adobe Creative Cloud and Drobo.

"FileShadow is bringing machine learning to end users," said Tyrone
Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. "With photos, graphics and other
documents often spread across many different cloud accounts, it's often
difficult and time consuming to locate them when most needed. Our Cloud
File Assurance service lets small businesses and consumers requiring
more professional capabilities utilize the power of machine learning to
easily access files with a single search. "

FileShadow does not replace Drobo or any of the popular cloud storage
vendors. Instead, it assures immediate searchability, availability and
protection of files stored in these sources by archiving each generation
of every file.

Google Vision API: What it adds to FileShadow

Using Google Cloud Vision API service, FileShadow detects
characteristics of a file or image stored in any of the user's cloud
accounts and Drobo appliances. The API classifies images into numerous
categories available for FileShadow's integrated search engine. With
this API, FileShadow creates extensive, searchable metadata on each
file. With Google Maps API, it discovers the file's content and location
(GPS), and with Google OCR API, it performs optical character
recognition (OCR) and creates vision tags for scanned images. With those
additional tags, users can find any file, in any cloud storage location
in just seconds.

"For example, with FileShadow and Google's API, users can search for
words that are in scanned documents, like contracts or agreements; can
find skiing photos even though those images aren't named or tagged as
skiing pictures, and can search documents or images by location," Pike
added. "These machine learning capabilities were previously only
available within the enterprise."

Also at Google Cloud Next '18, FileShadow is showcasing the integration
of the Google Compute Engine, Google Vision API, Google Maps API, Google
OCR API, and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, a recently announced partnership.
To see a demo of how this integration helps prosumers and SMB customers
manage and protect their files, visit booth W2307 at the event or watch
one of our tutorials.

FileShadow Service is available free of charge through Sept. 30, 2018.
The current trial offer covers free cloud file assurance for up to 1TB
of data and utilizes Google for file processing and Wasabi for
storage—the first example of FileShadow multi-cloud services. The option
to manually choose file processing and cloud storage vendors will be
available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
