This video will show you how to use GeoDrive. GeoDrive is an application you install on
your local hard drive. It enables you to easily drag and drop files you want to store in your
Cloud Storage Account. First, go to manage.savvisdirect.com and log into your management console. From
there navigate to the Cloud Storage tab, scroll down, and at the bottom left hand corner of
the page you'll see that we've made available to you both the Windows 32-bit or 64-bit version
of GeoDrive for you. Choose the one that's appropriate for you, go ahead and download
it, and follow the wizard-like instructions to install GeoDrive. Once you've completed
that the interface for creating and managing GeoDrives is what you see here now in my screen.
I've created a GeoDrive for the accounting department.
Let's go ahead and take a look at the settings on how that was set up. You can see here that
I gave it the utmost server name of Accounting, I gave it the description of Finance Documents,
and those are descriptions that I chose to suit my needs.
The next section are the credentials that you need to authenticate into the Cloud Storage
Platform and you find and get these credentials back on the management console. As you can
see here I've created what's called a token for the accounting department and if you click
on it it will bring up a box that gives you all the credential information that you need
to copy and paste into the GeoDrive application. First is the subtenant ID, second is the user
ID, and last is the shared secret. Let's jump back over to GeoDrive here and you can see
where I then put these -- the subtenant ID, the user ID, and the shared secret.
To finish configuring your GeoDrive you'll need to choose https for secured transmission
between GeoDrive on your computer and our Cloud Storage Environment and lastly you'll
need to enter a host name. The two host names that you'll want to enter
you can see here on the left - API-DC.savvisdirectstorage.net and API-SC.savvisdirectstorage.net. You may
choose either of them to upload your files depending on the location you prefer. The
DC location will store your files in our Sterling Virginia Data Center, the SC location will
store your files in our Santa Clara California Data Center location. Once you're done you
can go ahead and choose one of the URLs and click Test. This will run a test to make sure
that your user ID, your subtenant ID, and your shared secret along with the URL you've
chosen are syncing appropriately with the Cloud Storage Environment and as you see here
we have a successful test which means that we've made connection with our Cloud Storage
Account. You can also see that noted here by the screen light next to the accounting
GeoDrive that we just finished installing.
So the next thing you want to do is go to your hard drive, and if you take a look here
this is E drive, this is the accounting drive we just set up. So along with your hard disk
drive, your C drive, and any other local drives that you might have in your computer you now
have this Z drive, which is the letter that we chose, to access Cloud Storage. And so
the way to use this is to simply choose files on your local hard drive - you can see I've
created a test library here of files - we have a jpeg file, PowerPoint file, an Excel
file, and a Word file - and you can merely drag and drop these files onto your GeoDrive.
We'll pull a few of these over then we'll come over here and open up our GeoDrive appearance
of our Cloud Storage Account and you could see simply by dragging and dropping we've
successfully moved our files from our local hard drive onto our Cloud Storage Account.
