The File Fabric has two main modes of operation with regard to knowing what files are on a storage provider: cached mode and real-time mode. In cached mode the File Fabric maintains, in its database, metadata about each file on the underlying storage. As files are created, updated and deleted, the changes flow through the File Fabric and the File Fabric updates its metadata accordingly.by

At Storage Made Easy we are best known for our Enterprise File FabricTM, but we also sell desktop only Drives and dedicated Explorers that make using object storage systems such as S3 and compatibles, Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage and OpenStack Swift from the Windows desktop simple.

Like millions of other businesses we spent considerable time and effort ensuring that our internal operations were in compliance with the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by May 25 and, equally importantly, that they were positioned to remain in compliance after that date. Along the way we encountered and resolved – at least to our satisfaction – some challenging questions about what the regulators intended and how we could best comply with both the letter and the spirit of the law. Here are a few quick observations based on our experience.
The Storage Made Easy File Fabric™ works with over fifty file and object storage systems, both on-premises and on-cloud. Many of these storage systems offer more than one flavour of storage, and by exposing these variations through the File Fabric™ we have been able to help customers realise additional value from their storage providers, in addition to providing a centralised point of compliance and control of corporate data.
