OpenStack object storage service (OpenStack Swift) is an object storage service that offers scalability, data availability, security, and performance as part of a private cloud deployment. Unleash the power of OpenStack Swift as a corporate cloud file server with desktop drive remote access, secure file sharing over web browser, and accompanied by mobile applications on iOS and Android devices.
CentreStack creates one view of all your data that can be seamlessly accessed by multiple devices in multiple locations. Collaborate and share files with file locking, version control and business continuity.
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.
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.
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.
