For your business, you would like to take advantage of self-hosted private cloud deployment in a data center you prefer, and provide infrastructure for remote employees working from home, but you don't want to write code to use the raw OpenStack Swift API interface. You need to find an application that is already integrated with OpenStack Swift and ready to go.
Using an analogy, OpenStack Swift is like hard disks in a computer, which is hard to use without the Windows file server software sitting on top of the disks. Gladinet can turn OpenStack Swift into a secure file sharing service by layering software components on top of the underlying OpenStack Swift services.
Gladinet's secure file sharing solution includes file server cloud enablement, remote file access, version control, drive mapping, file locking and data protection. It is a file server application over the Internet.
Fore remote mobile workers, drive mapping and file locking are the two basic features for accessing files and folders over the Internet.
Gladinet solutions come with desktop agents that can map a network drive to the underlying OpenStack Swift service, with file locking feature.
Besides, Gladinet's mapped drive also comes with many advanced features. These features include local file caching, resuming transfer errors and survive Internet glitches, version control and conflict detection, endpoint encryption and protection and other features.
