Enterprise File Fabric 2021 Highlights | Top 5 Blogs

Once again the team behind the Storage Made Easy Blog have published articles covering the hottest data and storage management trends of 2021.

Here is our top 5 pick:

1 | How to securely web enable access to CIFS / SMB File Shares.

One of the predominant use cases that many companies have, particularly due to remote workers,  is to enable file access to SMB file shares that live behind the corporate firewall , or indeed  are hosted on IaaS infrastructures (such as Amazon FSX or Azure Files), without the need for a VPN and without reconfiguring permissions whilst using Active Directory or LDAP for authentication and also ensuring that data is secure and compliance legislation is satisfied.

Accessing files over CIFS/SMB network over VPN using a mobile network is possible but access can be patchy, clients apps limited and it is often extremely slow. The File Fabric enables this using its built in CIFS / SMB connector. This blog post walked us through how to web enable SMB file shares.
