Pydio 7 Launch: Latest Pydio Release Closes the Gap on Online File Sharing Services

Pydio 7, the latest release of the popular, open source file sharing & sync solution, has been released today featuring a host of new features and performance upgrades. Available immediately, Pydio 7 is the first corporate file sharing solution to offer a true, open source alternative to consumer-focused online services.

“With this new release we have eliminated the usability costs that typically blight companies with a need to meet with regulatory compliance. Now anyone can choose to own and control their own information.” says Charles du Jeu, CEO/CTO and Co-founder of Pydio.

Collaborative Inline editing

Through a new partnership with Collabora Productivity (the LibreOffice Cloud provider), Pydio 7 now combines file sharing, document editing and online collaboration. Users can now not only access documents online, but also co-author new content and work collaboratively.

File Gateway

File Gateway is Pydio’s first SaaS offering. It removes the risk and complexity of sharing documents with external parties, by routing share links through a hosted  proxy. The file gateway allows users to share documents with any third party, without exposing their server URL and compromising internal server security.


The Workspaces function allows Pydio 7 users to organise file sharing and online collaboration by project, team or department. Admins are able to manage access, create specific rules, and define folder permissions within each individual “Workspace”, without the need to create a new Pydio instance.

Pydio Booster

Pydio Booster is an add-on server solution built in Go, the performant language developed by Google specifically for servers. It delivers major performance enhancements out-of-the box, for both small and large-scale deployments. Pydio is now able to delegate tasks to this new component, dramatically improving overall performance and scalability, while automating secure communication.

Enterprise Distribution

Pydio 7 also sees major enhancements to its Enterprise Distribution, which builds on the full-featured Community Edition with an additional dashboard and plugins for simplifying large-scale deployment, administration, security and integration. The new release brings many new features in this additional dashboard, as well as new plugins and a fully revamped LDAP plugin including ready-to-use templates for most common directories.
