Layer2 Cloud Connector

Connect SharePoint & Office 365 to 100+ systems and apps to sync data and files or start NINTEX workflows on external data change.

AuthorFrank Daske
Long Description

The Layer2 Cloud Connector connects your line-of-business data and files to Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, Dynamics CRM/ERP, Exchange, SQL databases and almost any other systems:

* No programming or tools required: Just select a data provider, enter connection string and data query. No installation or customizing at SharePoint or the external data source required.

* 100% compatible to ALL SharePoint 2010/2013/2016 offerings: On premise, externally hosted, Office 365, OneDrive for Business, or sandboxed.

* Reliable architecture: A connection is established only for data exchange – not for user interaction. External data is cached in native SharePoint lists.

* Secure data connection and transfer: The connector runs where your data resides today - on any server or client inside your corporate network with Internet connectivity available, or in the Azure cloud. No data is exposed to any 3rd party.

* High performance: Works great with large data sets.

* Almost any data source supported: ODBC, OLEDB, OData, .NET-based providers, file content (Excel, XML, CSV), File System Replication, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, IBM DB2, IBM AS/400, IBM Informix, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SharePoint, Dynamics NAV/CRM, Exchange, Active Directory, Navision, Lotus Notes, SAP, Web Services etc.

* Data providers for SharePoint, OData, File System, XML/RSS, Exchange, SOAP included. Vendor specific (e.g. Oracle, MySQL) or 3rd party ADO.NET data providers (e.g. Salesforce, Facebook, Twitter) supported.

* Start workflows (including NINTEX) or send email notifications in the cloud on external data change. Mobilize your backend data.
* Sync your local folders or server file shares to SharePoint, Office 365, OneDrive4B without any restrictions.

* Connect all supported systems directly with each other, without using SharePoint or Office 365.

* No data volume-related costs. Just a one-time server-based fee.You can use for migration, backup, intgration and sync.
