Enterprise File Collaboration: Filling Big Business Needs

Strong business drivers are encouraging corporations to take the plunge into Enterprise File Collaboration (EFC).

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.

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.
