Many businesses are interested in storing their content in an online storage solution
that makes it easy to access, manage or share it from any location with any device.
They must also ensure that their content remains secure and that the process of
cloud storage adoption is non-disruptive.
Finally, they must make sure that the solution satisfies all the BASIC
cloud storage use case. These include
and sharing, identity
management and collaboration.
CentreStack addresses concerns about the ease of migration and provides a simple,
secure, multi-device access model for online storage. It further supports the BASIC
cloud storage use cases, works with most popular public cloud storage services and
can be configured to leverage any pre-existing cloud storage account. Some of these
businesses may also be looking for solutions to any of the following problems.
Private Cloud Storage Access
Companies are adopting private cloud storage services such as OpenStack
Swift, in addition to the traditional file server network shares. A successful private cloud storage solution must provide simple
access methods for the BASIC use cases. These include backup, access, synchronization,
identity management and collaboration. A reasonable migration strategy must be implemented
to move existing data to private online storage without disruptions.
Mobile Access to On-Premise Data
There is an increasing need to provide access solutions for mobile devices. Many
cloud access solutions cover this use case but some organizations are not ready
to move their data to the cloud. Essentially, they want to be able to access on-premise
file server data from any location with any device.
Private Access to Online Storage
An enterprise may be willing to place some faith in a service provided by an industry
stalwart like Amazon, Google, HP, or Microsoft but have a difficult time depending
on access infrastructure provided by relative newcomers like Box, Dropbox, or Gladinet.
They therefore prefer to control the access infrastructure themselves while leveraging
online storage from a large provider such as Windows Azure or Amazon GovCloud.
Multi-tenant Access to Online Storage
provider may need a way to provide multi-tenant access to their SaaS solution
giving each customer their own private access infrastructure.
CentreStack (Gladinet Cloud Enterprise) provides a solution for each of these problems.
Just like the standard offering of the Gladinet Cloud Team Edition, it solves the BASIC
access needs for private cloud storage but allows the access infrastructure to be
deployed on-premise with a very simple installation and setup process that can be
completed in minutes. GCE can be deployed with storage from a private cloud, public
cloud or on-premise servers and is very tightly integrated with Active Directory.
- Remote users can use mobile devices to access on-premise file server content without
a virtual private network (VPN)
- The convenience of Dropbox-like features can be combined with the security and control
of private deployment
- A private cloud can be automatically created from existing file servers
- Home directories in Active Directory will be automatically prepared for secure remote
