Post Updated October 6th 2016

We now have plenty of companies and ISP’s who are using our full Enterprise File Share and Sync solution for OpenStack but we have long been approached by companies asking if they could have just the drive piece of our functionality available that works in a dedicated fashion outside of our full EFSS solution.

To that end we are pleased to announce the release of a dedicated OpenStack Windows CIFS Drive that is a standalone installer that works directly with OpenStack Swift instances.

Install is simple:
