Cloud file vendors try to woo enterprise storage buyers

 

Cloud NAS specialist Ctera launched work-from-home tools to Ctera Enterprise File Services Platform. The product suite consists of a desktop-sized gateway and software agent for computer endpoints. Ctera CEO Liran Eshel said many enterprises still struggle to serve users forced to work remotely.

“Distributed file services are a huge aspect of the post-pandemic era,” Eshel said. “Customers are asking ‘How do you serve users at the far end of the network?”

The new Ctera HC100 Edge Filer provides 1 TB of usable NVMe flash with CIFS and SMB protocols. Up to 20 users are supported on a single HC100 appliance. Organizations can connect any number of edge devices to a single namespace, Ctera said.
