Enhanced MacOS Experience
Native MacOS file experiences are largely unsupported by enterprise NAS systems, leading to a direct impact on user productivity and performance.
CTERA has developed MacOS-specific interoperability technology for the purpose of providing a consistent user experience across any operating system and any file share, either on the desktop, on a local Edge Filer, or in the cloud.

What the Industry is Saying
"An edge-to-cloud approach like CTERA’s is becoming necessary for media companies to meet burgeoning requirements for both storage capacity and performance with the greatest economy."
Randy Kerns and Krista Macomber, Evaluator Group
"Our investigation into cloud-based file services platforms culminated in the CTERA global file system, which allowed us to consolidate virtualization, backups, storage, presentation, and sharing into a single solution. We are excited by the CTERA 7.0 benefits of further improved performance and macOS usability."
