build the content for this white paper.


  *   Looking for a user-oriented, Multi-Cloud & POSIX file-copy tool?  Motuz 
relies on an on-prem 'gateway' which has access to on-prem storage ... as well 
as keys to Cloud storage (AWS, GCP, Azure).  Gives the user a two-paned (left 
pane & right pane) GUI for exploring two storage targets and copying files / 
folders between them.  You drag & drop ... this submits asynchronous jobs to 
the gateway ... which reports progress on them.<>
