Gladinet Cloud for OpenStack Swift
Simple Online Collaboration, Online File Storage, Offsite Backup and Team Workspaces with OpenStack Swift
 

What is OpenStack Swift

OpenStack Swift is storage for the Internet. In addition to traditional enterprise-class storage technology, many organizations now have a variety of storage needs with varying performance and price requirements. OpenStack has support for both Object Storage and Block Storage, with many deployment options for each depending on the use case. Object Storage is ideal for cost effective, scale-out storage. It provides a fully distributed, API-accessible storage platform that can be integrated directly into applications or used for backup, archiving and data retention. - http://www.openstack.org/software/openstack-storage/

What Does it Mean to You?

For your business, you would like to take advantage of your own infrastructure, but you don't want to write code to use the raw OpenStack Swift interface. You need to find an application that is already integrated with OpenStack Swift and ready to use.

Why Gladinet Cloud?

Gladinet Cloud works with OpenStack Swift to provide simple online collaboration, online file storage, offsite backup and team workspace solution. You can download and install the Gladinet Cloud Enterprise on top of your OpenStack Swift instances so you can have an Enterprise File Sync and Share solution based on your own OpenStack Swift. Or if you want to see the live solution first hosted by Gladinet, just sign up for an account and it is ready to use.

What are the Main Features?

Access Your Files Anywhere

Gladinet Cloud provides access methods to OpenStack Swift from a web browser, native Windows Explorer desktop client, native Mac OS X Finder, iOS App, Android App, Windows Phone 8 and file server. When you are on the road, you can use the mobile applications to access your files. When you are in the office, you can connect to your on-premise file server for access. You can also access them from your desktop at home or use a web browser from any location on any client.

Seamlessly Migrate Local Folders to OpenStack Swift

Gladinet provides unique synchronization technology that allows you to attach local folders to cloud storage. Attaching a folder means that its contents immediately become accessible to any device from any location (even before the sync is finished). It also means that the attached folder will be synchronized with the cloud and any changes made in the cloud from a remote mobile device will be synchronized back to the attached folder. This is a powerful solution with no bulk ingestion roadblocks.

Collaborate with Team Folders

Administrators of the team account can create team folders for collaboration. Once a team folder is created and assigned to a user or group, the team folder will appear in the root of their Gladinet drive. Users can lock/unlock files, add comments and setup notifications.

Security Features

Gladinet Cloud enhances OpenStack Swift by providing encryption, file locking, auditing and permission control at the folder level, with client-side enforcement.

Share Files and Folders

You can share folders and files with your team members. Team members receiving these shares will see the files and folders under the "Files Shared with me" folder. You can assign read-only permission or full access to the shared items. You can also share folders and files with someone outside your team, who doesn't have a Gladinet Cloud account. They can receive read-only access, protected by a password.

File Server Migration

Gladinet Cloud Server Agent is part of the Gladinet Cloud. By connecting your OpenStack Swift cloud storage to a file server, multiple office users can then connect to the file server without a Gladinet client through file shares on the LAN. This has multiple benefits. For example, it unifies file structures across multiple sites into a single namespace and can be used to seamlessly migrate your existing file server to the cloud.

User Management and Active Directory Integration

If you have at least one Gladinet Cloud Server installed inside your active directory domain, it can serve as the authentication integration server helping to import active directory users into your Gladinet Cloud team account, with single sign-on. You can also setup LDAPS if it is available. End result is you can access OpenStack Swift Cloud Storage, with your own Active Directory identity.
