DNNGlobalStorage seamlessly integrates external storage capabilities with DNN Core, Evoq and 3rd. party modules.
DNN Global Storage expands your DNN and Evoq storage options beyond your Web Server. It is set of DNN Folder Providers (also known as "connectors") which seamlessly integrates external file systems (such as UNC, FTP, SFTP), and cloud based file systems (such as Amazon S3 / CloudFront, Microsoft Azure, Google Drive / Google Docs, Box, DropBox, Microsoft OneDrive, Office 365, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint, Rackspace Cloud Files) with DNN Core, Evoq, and 3rd. party modules.
Features shared by all the DNNGlobalStorage providers you will not find in any other folder provider implementation.
This is one of the few products included in DNN Store's Evoq preferred products list.
Evoq Preferred Products have been tested and verified by DNN to work with Evoq products on all supported deployment platforms. When you buy an Evoq Preferred Product, you're buying with confidence that the product meets quality standards and is sold by an established vendor.
You can choose which subfolder (in the remote storage being linked to your DNN site) should act as the root folder seen by the DNN site. This allows you to provide a segmented view of your attached storage, instead of enabling access to all its content.
Allows multiple connections of any provider within same DNN Portal.
Regardless of the storage provider's accessibility settings, the files will seem to be served directly from your web site (not linked from their true location).
Tested and approved to run in Microsoft Azure.
DNNGlobalStorage was built upon DNN standard APIs. This means, the powerful functionality exposed by any folder provider is available in any DNN Core or 3rd. party module using the DNN File System API. In other words, it allows DNN Core and 3rd party modules to utilize externally-persisted files without any modification.
Allows connections to the remote storage enforcing a 'read only' mode, ensuring that the connected file system will not be updated in any way.
Allow modules to have a static "always valid" URL that will generate a short-lived URL at run time.
When enabled, only host users can add or edit folder types.
All providers expose caching settings you can tune for your needs.
You can set custom levels of logging in DNN's Log4Net log files for easy logging and troubleshooting.
Reducing dependencies on common 3rd. party libraries minimizes the risk of one 3rd. party (or DNN Core) extension breaking another.

External storage capabilities powered by DNN Global Storage.
I have had nothing but good experiences working with this software and it has saved me on numerous occasions. DNN is great
software but sometime things go wrong during upgrades of extensions or DNN versions, so it is absolutely
essential to have a reliable backup and restore strategy like Evotiva DNNBackup provides.
Excellent module. It even perform differential backups on the file system. Highly recommend it.
Evotiva is the best backup tool for DNN ever. Even in excellent hosting locations, it's always a great idea to have an independent
3rd party location backup. I use Evotiva backup to weekly send a zip of the database and folder structure
to an AWS or FTP location for safe keeping. Evotiva helps power my backup strategy and lets me sleep at
This is a fantastic module for all your Document Management needs within DNN. This has been very useful for listing downloadable
web content and maintaining our web site’s files. Very powerful program. Thanks.
Great, flexible product, for example large file downloads. Very fast support in case of questions.
A very good product that greatly simplifies document maintenance. Even for users without editor rights to use well. The developer
is very helpful and answers questions quickly and accurately.
This module made is super easy to upgrade my sites! I use the Backup module as well and I love that the 2 are integrated,
doing a backup before upgrading. No more FTPing 1000's of files in order to upgrade my sites! A definite
"Must Have" for any site.
I've been working with DNN since version 3.x so I've seen a ton of module developers come and go. Evotiva has been around
for almost as long but this Automatic Upgrade module is SWEET!! Combined with their DNN Backup module you
will never blow up another DNN application trying to apply an update. This module does everything for you.
Tweak a few settings click GO and kick back and watch it work. I doubt I'll ever do another manual backup.
This is definitely a keeper!!
I had some problem and not able to upgrade one of my site from DNN 6.2.6 to 7.2.2 and decided to try DNNUpgrade. The product
works great. The support team responded and help resolved some of the problem I have quickly. If you are
maintaining a high value website using DNN and need to upgrade to newer version from time to time, DNNUpgrade
is a valuable tool that will save you time and headache.
Works like a charm with building a DNN site that can store files outside of the DNN instance and hosted server environment.
Need the ability for virtual AWS and Dropbox folders within DNN native? then this is your solution for community edition!
This is awesome, works perfect to add cloud storage to your DNN site.
