Branch Office File Sharing Made Easy!

With CentreStack and OpenStack Swift combined, files and folders are served directly from OpenStack Swift containers with user permission control and mapped drive access.

In the past, for mobile workforce working from branch offices, accessing files and folders may not be as straight forward as those working from corporate head quarters. Site-to-site VPN may need to be used to access files from centralized corporate file servers.

After consolidating branch office file servers into one cloud file server as files and folders are now sitting inside OpenStack Swift containers, mobile workforce accessing data from branch offices are the same as those employees from corporate head quarters.

Multi-Site Collaboration

With OpenStack Swift as the target storage repository, CentreStack provides additional features such as file server network folder synchronization and cloud backup to enhance business continuity and cloud migration.

Global Namespace
Branch and main offices share the same folder structure and work on the same set of files without fear of file corruption
Cloud Backup
Cloud backup is a special folder synchronization technology which provides snapshot restore and instant cloud access.
Enhanced Performance
Once a local folder is attached and starts to contribute files and folder structures to your cloud storage, it speeds up access from the other sites.

Files and folders migration to OpenStack Swift!

File server folder synchronization is a good way to migrate file server network shared folders to a centralized cloud file server. The Global workspace is established when files and folders from multiple branch offices populate into the global workspace. Cloud file server centralize remote file server access, file sharing and collaboration, while at the same time, keeping local file servers at each branch offices for local backup and local performance enhancements.
