CTERA edge filers modernize file storage, collaboration, and backup in an all-in-one solution for dispersed enterprises. CTERA filers provide users with local access to an infinite amount of cloud-based files while continuously synchronizing file changes to a global file system. CTERA is powering edge to cloud initiatives at leading organizations such as McDonald’s, The Carlyle Group, WPP, and multiple agencies within the U.S. Department of Defense.
“CTERA’s HC edge filers are the ideal solution for scalable file storage and cross-site collaboration across our globally distributed locations,” said Ewan McSween, IT Business Partner & Enterprise Architect, J. Walter Thompson London. “Users enjoy fast local access to creative files that are replicated to a virtual private cloud, where other colleagues around the world can collaborate on the different projects. CTERA allows us to adopt cloud technologies easily, and to avoid any performance or data security challenges.”
“Enterprises are seeking modern and more efficient ways to manage branch IT as their global locations expand, their headcounts grow, and their infrastructure requirements change,” said Oded Nagel, Chief Strategy Officer, CTERA. “The new CTERA HC Series is a powerful and robust evolution of our appliance product line, delivering optimized capabilities to meet emerging resource-intensive edge workloads like large file collaboration and archiving, data tiering, and more. In a single appliance, enterprise IT can future-proof against storage sprawl, modernize file services delivery, and converge critical ROBO infrastructure, applications, and protocols – all while delivering the highest levels of performance demanded by branch users.”
CTERA HC Series Edge Filers are available today. Models scale from a 4-bay 1U system to a 12-bay 2U system.
