Get Unlimited Capacity & Fast Access with File Caching

CTERA’s smart file caching technology delivers fast local access to a global file system. Frequently used or critical files are cached locally to ensure optimal edge performance, while file changes are replicated to the cloud.

The global file system enables a “gold copy” of all organizational data to be stored on a cost-effective and scalable cloud object storage. Gain unlimited file capacity at the edge with no need for additional storage when enterprise data volumes grow.

How File Caching Works in the Cloud

  • 1
    Users see the global file system as a local desktop drive
  • 2
    Changes to the files are deduped, encrypted, and bi-directionally synced with the cloud
  • 3
    Non-pinned data is removed locally based on the LRU algorithm cache settings

File Caching Enables Infinite, Fast Access From Any Device

Unlimited File Capacity
Secure and unlimited file access from any endpoint or edge filer.

Reduced Edge Storage
Only frequently used files are stored at the edge, eliminating the need for new appliances to expand capacity.

Highest Speed File Access
Office and remote user access to centralized cloud-based files with optimized file server and endpoint access.

Multi-Cloud Data Management
Seamlessly move files across clouds to meet cost efficiency or data protection requirements.

Global Namespace
Local presentation of cloud-based file ‘stubs’ on edge devices gives users complete access to the global file system from their laptop or workstation.

Seamless Data Migration
Easy migration of existing network file shares, access permissions, and ACLs/security policies from legacy file systems.
