Infinite File Capacity

Intelligent file caching technology delivers unlimited file access to office users, with visibility to all organizational files centralized in the cloud. Users enjoy easy collaboration across offices and endpoints with no local storage restraints, and files are dynamically cached from any secure cloud to designated cloud storage gateways.

CTERA Caching Technology Brief

Maintain Local File Access

For cloud storage to be truly effective for remote file access and sharing, users must be able to work and collaborate on cloud files as if they were stored locally. CTERA Edge Filers use smart caching to accelerate file access speeds for remote users, ensure availability even when disconnected from the cloud, and enable users to maintain familiar workflows.

Ideal for the Distributed Enterprise

Many of CTERA’s enterprise and government customers have dozens, hundreds or even thousands of sites, dispersed across large geographical areas. CTERA’s scalable cloud-enabled platform supports large deployments, including remote locations with unreliable or slow Internet connections.
