Are you planning to build a cloud storage offering and trying to avoid stumbling blocks and create a scalable, robust and cost-effective architecture? Cloud storage is rapidly changing how organizations build, manage and deliver data services. Large clouds are now being built by enterprises who are transforming into IT-as-a-Service providers, as well as service providers that now offer cloud services to business customers who no longer want to manage IT. The HPE Complete CTERA Solution offers next-generation Cloud Storage Services that transform HPE Server based Cloud Solution offerings into a wide variety of managed file services. This enables organizations to serve, protect and collaborate on file-based data, like never before. This joint solution offers great customer ease and convenience like you would find in a public cloud solution, but without risking data security, compromising regulatory compliance, or creating uncontrolled costs from unmanaged growth.
Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) Modernization
The HPE Complete CTERA platform delivers an intelligent branch and remote offi¬ce appliance that combines network computing services with a complete suite of enterprise file services, including file storage and collaboration, backup and disaster recovery, and smart real-time caching and sync.
The solution enables dramatic ROBO infrastructure consolidation and increased ease of management and savings.
Delivers better data access options than traditional ROBO IT storage silos of data. As well, central IT managers enjoy no system downtime due to hardware failures, maintenance windows or system upgrades.
Seamless user experience
The HPE Complete Ctera solution edge appliances allow o¬ffice workers to securely access, share and protect an unlimited number of files in the cloud as if they were stored locally with no additional software required.
The appliances also offer backup for servers, laptops and desktops for files and “bare metal.” Files and backups are sent to the cloud according to the customer’s policy using AES-256 encryption, compression, de-duplication, and bandwidth control.
Users can access their files from anywhere, using a browser or apps for mobile platforms including iPad, iPhone and Android. Additionally, users can share files ad-hoc and in project teams, synchronize folders between multiple devices and synchronize the cloud.
HPE Complete CTERA also enables enterprise and service provider organizations to deliver modern content collaboration (file sync and share) services that enable anywhere, anytime file access and sharing.
CTERA Drive Share is a Gartner Magic Quadrant-recognized solution for content collaboration that eliminates the data privacy and governance concerns associated with public SaaS file sharing solutions.
Users can seamlessly collaborate with internal and external users using secure workspaces, and IT can ensure governance and regulatory compliance by leveraging integrated DLP tools.
Backup and Recovery
HPE Complete CTERA also provides backup and recovery for roaming and office users.
Smart endpoint clients back up data directly to HPE private cloud infrastructure, while remote office desktops and servers leverage CTERA’s edge filers in a hybrid backup model to minimize WAN latency.
The solution covers multiple platforms and use cases, avoiding the complexity and cost of traditional IT backup.
