Enterprise File Sync & Share Solution with OpenStack Swift
Turn Your OpenStack Swift into a Box/Dropbox-like Sync & Share Solution
IntroductionYou installed and deployed OpenStack Swift and it is ready for business. That was the easy part. Now the real challenge is how to turn it into an easy-to-use solution for end users.
Problem StatementMost end users won't use OpenStack Swift storage directly because the interface is too primitive. That interface is designed for developers who can write programs to leverage the basic reading, writing and deletion of objects. Instead, end users need an access platform for OpenStack Swift storage that covers their basic (Backup, Access, Sync\Share, Identity management and C ontrolled Collaboration) access needs.

Gladinet Cloud provides an access platform that satisfies these needs and includes support for a wide variety of heterogeneous clients. Furthermore, all the user facing components of this access platform can be rebranded while the management infrastructure (Gladinet Cloud Cluster) can be hosted in any datacenter.
"Gladinet Cloud" runs on our public Gladinet site, providing access, backup, sync , and team collaboration features for business. It provides three important components: cloud storage, clients to access the cloud storage (mobile devices, desktops, file servers, web browsers) and the access infrastructure which brokers communication between the clients and the cloud storage with added benefits like distributed file locking, instant file server migration, active directory integration and more.
"Gladinet Cloud Enterprise" packages all of the "Gladinet Cloud" access infrastructure into a package that an Enterprise can install on-premise, or inside a DMZ to have full control and security protection, with optional native Active Directory integration. You can set any OpenStack Swift storage (or your own file servers) as the default cloud storage and provide it to your employees. This product is a good fit for a single enterprise.
"Gladinet Cloud Enterprise for Service Provider" is the same as "Gladinet Cloud Enterprise" with support for multiple tenants and integration with multiple AD domains. This is a good fit for a service provider who wants to support multiple businesses through a single instance. It includes some branding options out of box. It has multi-tenant support, offers full branding (through Gladinet consulting), and everything else you need as a service provider to run "File Sync and Share Solution" in your own data center, under your own control. It can also scale easily to provide a multi-server farm that can support hundreds of thousands of users or more. The full branding includes web site, native clients, mobile clients, and all "skin" changes.
