Webcast: Simplifying ROBO Storage Using Hybrid Cloud/Local Architecture

Remote and branch office (ROBO) storage presents unique challenges to enterprise IT and storage professionals. Meeting the needs of dispersed end-users with limited on-site IT support while managing growth in capacity, taming complexity, and keeping costs under control is a daunting task. The larger the number of remote sites, the bigger the challenge becomes.

However, a new approach is redefining ROBO storage deployments. It leverages both cloud and local storage, resulting in significant cost reduction and simplified management while providing end-users with fast access to files, easy recovery of backups and the ability to share files both locally and in the cloud. 

Join storage analysts from Taneja Group and CTERA in this December 2012 on-demand webcast as they explore a comprehensive approach to ROBO storage and discuss:

*ROBO end-user storage needs vs. corporate IT considerations
*Pros and cons of alternative approaches to managing ROBO storage, including: Traditional approaches employing local file servers and tape backup, as well as remote backup, WAN optimization, and cloud storage gateways
*How leveraging cloud storage technology integrated with managed local storage appliances can optimize cost, performance and management overhead
*How this approach can scale to many thousands of sites, providing speedy deployment, centralized management and ease of use for ROBO end users.

Think Beyond Simple Sync and Share

Providing a safe alternative to public cloud-based file sync-and-share services is a good idea, but be prepared to expand those services to enhance other business processes. Cloud-based files services like Dropbox have changed the game of file data access. Making file data more accessible is a long-standing problem that was first addressed by consumer-level products that were free of enterprise encumbrances.

CTERA 5.0 Cloud Gateway Embeds File Sync and Share Services

CTERA this week announced their 5.0 cloud gateway, which presents a compelling convergence play of distributed cloud-backed NAS, integral backup services, and now natively built-in enterprise-wide file syncing and sharing services and interfaces. Yep, end users get a fully secured endless NAS, local backup/restore to their files, and the global file and document collaboration they otherwise go around IT by using insecure public services. This really helps organizations address the broader trend toward the end-user driven"consumerization of IT"....

IT Can Now Deliver What Their "Consumers" Want: CTERA 5.0 Enables Enterprise Distributed Data

End-user mobility and the fast growth of data are increasingly pushing file storage and sharing into the cloud. Sharing data through an easy-to-use cloud service keeps globe-hopping users happy and productive, while technologies like cloud storage gateways enable IT to govern across on-premise and cloud storage as a single infrastructure. However, the big goals of these two groups often crash like fast ships on ramming speed. What end-users want as consumers is fast, easy, and always-on while IT requires fully secure, controlled, and ultimately cost-effective. This imbalance creates challenges: concentrate on end-user usability and governance suffers; concentrate on governance and usability diminishes.

How can live files and business data move with users, and IT control and governance follow the data wherever it goes? Globally mobile end-users need to efficiently access and share files, while corporate IT needs to govern and secure those files. Both parties look hopefully to the cloud to provide the mobility and scalability necessary for this level of file collaboration and control. They are right about cloud mobility and scalability but external cloud services can’t by definition provide IT governed data services and private clouds solutions to-date haven’t exactly been on par with the consumer-grade versions publicly available. End users today demand IT provide services like EFSS that are as good or better then the free services everyone has on their smartphones and laptops, and if IT can’t, end-users will end-run around IT.

The solution isn’t hard to dream up: create a single strategic control point for enterprise-level data mobility and governance that works across enterprise cloud-like services. Sadly, thinking about something does not make it so. Certainly central control is common for specific computing domains. Storage makers create central management consoles for the systems under their control. Virtualization makers create central management for hundreds and thousands of VMs. Backup makers create central control for data replication across remote sites. And the components specific to sharing and protecting file data are common: enterprise file share and sync (EFSS) and cloud gateways. But what has been missing up until now is central control over all those processes in a simple unified manner, especially when supporting a distributed workforce.

CTERA cloud storage gateways have provided file-based protection and mobility since the company stepped onto the cloud-based management scene. Now a major new release further supports and enables integrated end-to-end file and data services. CTERA’s 5.0 version of its Enterprise Data Services Platform powerfully brings together several key capabilities that help IT easily deliver the distributed services their users want and need while ensuring full governance and control. The platform combines their highly available NAS gateway for core and edge services with advanced EFSS and backup. Their seamless integration cements separate solutions into a cohesive CTERA platform. In this report we will examine CTERA 5.0 and its balanced benefits for both user happiness and productivity, and IT governance and control.

Hybrid Cloud Storage

Hybrid cloud storage orchestrates storage processing between on-premise and cloud resources, creating a single virtual storage infrastructure with centralized management. Software-defined storage (SDS) enables hybrid cloud storage vendors to decouple processing from storage assets.
