Nuxeo Drive works with all "content-centric" applications built on the Nuxeo Platform, such as those dedicated to Document Management, Digital Asset Management, Case Management, as well as custom content-centric applications.

The software installs as a light client on the desktop, establishes a secure connection to the Nuxeo repository — on premise, or in the cloud — and updates content when a change is detected, either locally or in the Nuxeo repository.

NOTE: Nuxeo Drive handles all types of content, from simple files such as documents, images, and slide decks to complex application output and custom content types.

Secure conflict resolution ensures that collaborative projects stay up-to-date in the Nuxeo content repository. Written in Python, Nuxeo Drive is available as native binary for most operating systems. The synchronization client is based on an open RESTful protocol, so it can be used to develop an efficient synchronization client in any language, for custom content-centric applications. Nuxeo Drive is open source, with code available on GitHub.

"This goes far beyond simple cloud-based file-sharing systems, because the Nuxeo Platform provides a full content management application," said Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO. "But the beauty of Nuxeo Drive is its ability to handle custom content. For example, you can create a custom content type in the Nuxeo Platform to handle insurance claims. It can be synced on the client as an XML file, edited with a local application, such as an offline form application, and then synced back to the Nuxeo repository, where other team members can access the most recent version. No other solution can do that."
