Cloud-Based File Analytics

View File Analytics on our Cloud Services Web site.  Send us the client indexes from your CommCell environment, and we will stage a virtual machine (VM) for you on the Cloud Services Web site. On the staged VM, you can use the File Analytics Report for file and archive analysis in your CommCell environment.

Before You Begin

  • You must have a user account on the Cloud Services Web site. To create a user account, register your CommServe computer. If you already have a user account, you still might need to register your CommServe computer. For instructions, see Getting Access to the Cloud Services Web Site.
