The purpose of this post is to outline how the Enterprise File Fabric can be used with a BlockChain HyperLedger solution to provide guaranteed non tamper audit reports for the corporate file estate.
Blockchain is a distributed databased for maintaining records (called blocks) in which the data in the block cannot be altered retrospectively. HyperLedger is one of a number of projects that use blockchain at its core and is a specification for how a trusted network should work. In this example we use Fabric but there are others such as Sawtooth Lake, Corda R3 and Iroha.
The Enterprise File Fabric provides a unified multi-cloud content repository for all company data, whether stored on-cloud or on-premises. The solution supports over 60s storage endpoints including object storage such Amazon S3, IBM COS, Google Storage, Microsoft Azure, as well as traditional on-premises storage such as Windows Filers, NAS / SAN, and other more common storage solutions such as Box, DropBox, Office 365 etc.
The File Fabric provides a multi-cloud solution for on-site and on-cloud data and can be used for solutions as diverse as data governance and compliance through to Big Data / Object Storage use cases.
The below set of slides list out use cases that the Enterprise File Fabric can be applied to.
The Storage Made Easy engineering team is constantly working on strengthening the File Fabric product set and one of the features they are currently working on is the File Content Intelligence feature.
The video below takes a look at the File Content Intelligence feature, how it interacts with the File Fabric’s data automation rules and how it provides value to the Media and Entertainment industry.
One of the challenges that many companies face with regards to Governance and Compliance is that of understanding why shared links were created and shared, something we refer to as Shared Link Contexts.
This is important not only for organisational security but is also effective when there is a requirement to respond to the ‘why’ data was shared aspect of information compliance.
