Centralized Cloud File Server Solution

As more companies move to work from home in times of crisis, employees need reliable and efficient ways to access the company's file servers and continue to collaborate on files as if they were still in the office.

OpenStack Swift is a reliable and scalable cloud storage service. Together with Gladinet, it becomes a secure file sharing solution with file server cloud enablement.

What is OpenStack Swift

OpenStack Swift is the object storage service in the OpenStack private cloud deployment. It is designed to simplify web-scale computing for developers, especially in the area of object storage.

OpenStack Swift has a simple web services interface that allows you to store and retrieve any amount of data, anytime, from anywhere on the web. Any developer can access the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, and cost-effective data storage infrastructure through the OpenStack Swift APIs. The service aims to maximize the benefits of scale and pass those benefits on to developers.

What Does it Mean to You?

You want to take advantage of a self-hosted private cloud for your business in a data center of your choice and provide infrastructure for employees to work from home, but you do not want to write code to take advantage of the raw OpenStack Swift API interface. You need to find an application that is already integrated with OpenStack Swift and ready to go.

An analogy: OpenStack Swift is like hard drives in a computer that are difficult to use without the Windows file server software that resides on the hard drives. 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.

Files and folders over the Internet

For 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.

In addition, Gladinet's mapped drive has 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 more.
