In our “The features and benefits of using LucidLink with the Enterprise File Fabric” last blog post we outlined the features and benefit of using LucidLink with the File Fabric. We have made available this integration to the Enterprise File Fabric as a technology preview. The following instructions outline the adding of a File Fabric ‘Filesystem’ Provider connected to one or more filespaces.by
LucidLink is a “Cloud NAS” endpoint delivered as a SaaS solution. The Enterprise File Fabric provides storage aggregation, permissions, auditing, sharing and data movement for over 60+ storage platforms and providers. The combination of LucidLink and the Enterprise File Fabric creates a storage solution which can be considered greater than the sum of its parts.

With so many employees working from home, organizations are looking for ways to enhance the security of their data, often spread between on-premises and cloud data stores, without compromising employee productivity and to comply with cyber insurance policies that may be, being added or renewed.
For enterprises using the Enterprise File Fabric™ , activating Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an easy way to enhance access security on resources such as remote SMB/file and Object Storage with minimum disruption for end users.
Bombora needed a technology that would enable clients’ SFTP access directly to their data in GCP without the need for additional processing. Here’s where the Enterprise File Fabric stepped in to provide a solution.by
You can think of Group WorkSpace as a virtual workplace that can be used for collaborating with external and internal users of an Organisation. Each Group Workspace is a standalone space for collaboration.by
Post pandemic has resulted in a surge of cloud adoption with many companies now operating a hybrid mix and match approach to corporate data to fit in with new digital transformation approaches that encompass hybrid or remote workers.
Whereas a hybrid multi-cloud approach is best for flexibility and ROI it can increase the threat surface of data so it is key to adopt a unified policy based approach to data governance and compliance. Below are 5 key recommendations for multi-cloud data governance:by
Exoscale is a Swiss-based cloud services platform providing hosting and infrastructure services, including storage, throughout central Europe. This article walks through adding Exoscale object storage to the Enterprise File Fabric. For information on launching the Enterprise File Fabric from on the Exoscale cloud platform itself see Getting Started with Exoscale.by
A global financial services firm was facing two critical challenges. First, a portfolio risk management application was working off a local server, which was a single point of failure. Secondly, the permission structure implemented was inadequate given the sensitivity of the data.
In our latest case study we show how the adoption of the Enterprise File Fabric provided secure end user File access to Cloudian Hyperstore ObjectStorage whilst maintaining Data Governance and Data Compliance.
Today, almost every aspect of our lives revolves around and is influenced by data. Various entities collect, analyse, and, more importantly, store our personal data, such as our names, home and IP addresses, and credit card numbers. This phenomenon was further confirmed by the 2020 UK Business Data Survey, which showed that 81% of businesses handle digitised personal and non-personal data from employees and customers alike. As these businesses expand, the use of data increases as well.
When a solution is as complete as the Enterprise File Fabric it is difficult to be fully aware of its capabilities and the use cases it is able to help organizations deal with.
In this new technology demo we aim to cover a full overview of the File Fabric.
Many IT teams at medical organisations are looking to modernise their IT infrastructure and manage growing costs by moving to either on-prem cloud, hybrid cloud or multi-cloud.
Cloudian Hyperstore provides a world class object storage solution for these organisations but many are often unsure about how to provide end users access to their data in a safe and secure manner that is able to be fully audited and compliant. That’s where Storage Made Easy’s File Fabric comes in.
The Enterprise File Fabric runs on a hardened version of Linux, so many monitoring platforms will have agents that could be installed to gather metrics and details from the appliances, for example take a look at one of my previous blogposts for monitoring using Telegraf/InfuxDB/Grafana:
But what about monitoring using agentless techniques? Well the most common method for this is using SNMP protocol to have monitoring systems query data from systems. While SNMP isn’t enabled by default, it’s easy enough to get installed.
