POST Telecom Selects CTERA and EMC ViPR to Power Cloud Storage Services for Businesses

Largest Telco in Luxembourg Enables Next-Generation File Sharing With New “CloudDrive” Offering Featuring CTERA Endpoint Backup and File Sync and Share Software

New York, New York and Petah Tikvah, Israel – October 30, 2014 – CTERA Networks today announced that its Cloud Storage Services Platform, along with EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage, has been selected by the largest telecommunications services company in Luxembourg to enable next-generation cloud storage services. POST Telecom will implement the CTERA and EMC ViPR-powered solution to provide business customers secure, enterprise-grade file sync & share (EFSS) and in-cloud and endpoint backup for PC, Mac, and Linux systems.

The CTERA-EMC ViPR solution will be privately labeled by POST as “CloudDrive,” allowing users access and management of their shared files, backup, and accounts using a standard browser and mobile apps all within the POST brand. CloudDrive addresses the needs of POST’s highly mobile business customer base, providing cloud storage services that feature the highest level of security, scalability, and manageability. The fully-branded solution enabled POST to minimize product time to market while the support for next-generation object storage ensured a low total cost of ownership.

“Together, CTERA and EMC ViPR help us eliminate long, costly development cycles by providing a proven cloud storage solution that scales to our entire customer base and deploys on our existing storage infrastructure,” said Daniel Santos, SoHo & SMB Ecosystem Manager, POST Telecom. “With many of our customers seeking enterprise-grade collaboration tools to securely sync and share files from mobile devices, CTERA and EMC ViPR provide the technology we need to deliver these new services and to grow our business.”

The combined CTERA-EMC solution enables POST to easily deliver and manage protection of a variety of cloud storage services – all from a unified platform with single pane-of-glass management. CTERA’s robust security features include encryption key management per customer and Active Directory integration for identity management, access control, and single sign-on (SSO), as well as the ability to delegate administration privileges to enterprise IT administrators.

“CloudDrive by POST Telecom demonstrates how the CTERA and EMC partnership allows IT service providers to rapidly launch cloud-enabled managed storage services,” said Jeff Denworth, CTERA SVP of Marketing. “POST’s selection of the CTERA Cloud Storage Services Platform serves as a leading validation of the storage service paradigm that is being adopted by both enterprises and service providers alike as IT re-invents the way it provides value from the cloud.”

The CTERA and EMC ViPR solution uses advanced de-duplication, compression and bandwidth control to guarantee excellent performance and low impact on bandwidth, even for customers with lower bandwidth connections. Storage capacity is automatically provisioned via EMC ViPR based on customer service plans defined within CTERA’s management console.
