Storing iPad content?

I am looking into ways that we can store/transfer content from an iOS device to another storage device/server and then edit that content either on a different device or back on the iOS device.
I have seen some posts about setting up WebDav or FTP Server, but hoping there are some enterprise answers to this. The iOS devices are being used by students and connecting via WLAN.
Thoughts?

If you choose to go with Apple, you have to adhere to Apple's rules. And there for the apps have to adhere to Apple's rules, and that rule is no global storage. Inherently, all apps have to find their own solution for this, and you have no Enterprise solution for ALL that you want. You have to look at which apps you use, and find a solution for each app. Some have options (for instance, Documents to Go has Google Drive, Sugarsync, Dropbox integration), and some simply don't.

If you chose Android, you could store it anywhere, be it on the tablet/phone memory, or USB drive/SD card, or even a shared network drive.

What about the FTP apps that advertise you can transfer data to a FTP Remote Server? Or using a WebDav Server?
I am obviously wanting to avoid data having travel over a WAN link (i.e. not Dropbox).
Surely there is something that someone is using and is somewhat supported?!?

You're still thinking about an overall solution. But as I explained, you have to look at every app on its own. EVEN the FTP app. The FTP app has the same restrictions as all other apps. So you have a shiny fully working FTP app, and you get the word/excel or whatever file from the FTP server you set up. Then that file still belongs to the FTP app, with Documents to Go not having access to the file you just downloaded. That's why you see all apps having dropbox, box.com, sugarsync, icloud and google drive integration. Even if you find an app with FTP integration, the next app you also need won't. Unless you only need one app, then you're fine.
