Infinite File Capacity

Intelligent 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 dynamically cached from any secure cloud to the cloud gateway.

CTERA Caching Technology Brief

Ideal for the Distributed Enterprise

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

Centralized Management

Manage all aspects of CTERA Edge Filers from a single console: Monitor usage, perform upgrades, manage backups, and troubleshoot remotely. Efficient template-based management and configurable alerts make this an easy task, even on a large scale.

Zero-Minute Disaster Recovery

Redirect users to secure direct-to-cloud file access in the event of an outage, ensuring uninterrupted office productivity. Seamless ACL (user permissions) enforcement on both the local gateway and in the cloud to ensure users experience the same file access in cloud failover scenarios. With no need for expensive, redundant failover/replacement hardware, organizations can save $1,000s per office.

Maintain Local File Access

Even as cloud storage is leveraged for disaster recovery and remote file access and sharing, users often demand solutions that maintain local network access speeds, function even when disconnected from the cloud, and do not change how they work. CTERA cloud storage gateways do exactly that.
