Service Delivery & Management Middleware

CTERA Portal is a scalable data services delivery middleware that enables the creation, delivery and management of storage-based services, including file sync & share, backup, remote office storage optimization and VDI storage optimization. It utilizes object and file storage infrastructure from multiple vendors, including EMC, HDS, HP, IBM, NetApp and AWS.

With a centralized management console for CTERA cloud storage gateways and endpoints, CTERA Portal makes it possible to extend data services to remote sites and mobile users, and manage anywhere from tens to tens of thousands of connected appliances and end-point devices. It allows enterprises and service providers to launch cloud storage services with ease, and with full white-labeling.

Centralized Management

CTERA Portal can remotely manage anywhere from tens to tens of thousands of connected devices, including CTERA cloud storage gateways for remote sites and end-point agents for individual users and mobile workforce. It allows you to launch and manage the following applications from your cloud storage infrastructure:

  • Continuous bi-directional synchronization between cloud folders, end-points and cloud gateways
  • Collaboration using shared project workspaces with user controlled permissions, and email invitations for ad-hoc access
  • Automated, bandwidth-optimized local & cloud backup with block-level de-duplication
  • Selective file backup and "bare metal" disk-level backup
  • Application-aware backup for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Active Directory, SharePoint and Hyper-V
  • VDI user data storage optimization, that leverages object storage for cost optimization and mobility
  • Remote access to files via standard browsers and CTERA Mobile app

Storage-as-a-Service Provisioning

Create and manage service plans and group-based templates, determine storage quota, licensing, service expiration dates, and manage dunning procedures. Easily integrate with Active Directory and LDAP for user authentication, as well as third party billing and monitoring systems.

Multi-Tenancy and Multi-Tier Management

CTERA Portal supports multi-tier management, making it possible to delegate aspects of service delivery to channel partners or departments using virtual instances of the CTERA portal that act as software blades sharing the same underlying infrastructure settings, but with complete isolation. Two types of "virtual portals" can be set up under a CTERA Portal Datacenter Edition installation:

  • Reseller Portal: Allows resellers to create their own service plans, and manage their customers independently of the hosting cloud service provider that owns and manages the storage infrastructure. Also includes the option of private branding per reseller.
  • Team Portal: Allows enterprise departments or individual businesses to manage their own storage services and provisioning. Includes the option to connect each Team Portal to a customer-defined authentication system (AD/LDAP) and collaborate in team workspaces.

Cloud Storage Back-End

CTERA Portal is interoperable with a variety of storage infrastructure providers, including public cloud services and object storage platforms from EMC, IBM, HDS, AWS and others. CTERA Portal eliminates storage vendor lock-in and allows you to load-balance between different back-end options, both private and public. For a list of supported storage vendors click here.

Integrations for Data Governance and Security

CTERA Portal integrates with anti-malware, enterprise mobility management (EMM), and data loss prevention (DLP) solutions to allow enterprises greater data visibility, control and compliance.

Flexible Service Plans
Create and manage your own service plans, controlling the types of services included, cloud storage provisioning, end-user self-registration, CTERA Agent licensing and more.
