Simplify disaster recovery, centralize management, and lower ROBO storage costs

The Challenge

Organizations have effectively eliminated the pains of branch office IT management by centrally hosting remote office applications and delivering them up as web-based services. Without the need for branch office server and business IT infrastructure of the past, organizations are re-thinking how they deploy data storage to remote offices for local file sharing and backup. Today’s ROBO user needs simple, managed solutions that leverage the cloud for low-cost ‘always-on’ disaster recovery

Solution Overview

CTERA Networks is the leader in cloud storage and a provider of a next-generation Cloud Storage Services Platform that transforms Cloudian HyperStore® storage into a wide variety of managed file services enabling organizations to serve, protect and collaborate on file-based data, like never before.

The CTERA Cloud Storage Services Platform for Cloudian HyperStore gives enterprise IT organizations and public cloud service providers a quick and easy way to launch a variety of service offerings.

Branch Office Modernization

CTERA’s branch office storage appliances combine cloud storage gateways with integrated NAS, file sharing and cloud backup capabilities for disaster recovery, creating a comprehensive and centrally managed solution that does away with legacy file servers, backup systems, deduplication tools and inefficient silos of storage.

Server and Endpoint Backup

CTERA’s cloud backup agent provides end-point backup and recovery for virtual machines and roaming users, while remote office desktops and servers leverage CTERA Cloud Storage Gateways to minimize WAN latency.

Cloudian HyperStore Solution and Benefits

Cloudian HyperStore software is a fully S3 API compliant, multi-tenant, multi-data center hybrid cloud storage software. Cloud service providers use Cloudian HyperStore software to deploy public clouds and managed private clouds, and enterprises use HyperStore software to deploy private and hybrid louds.
