Getting started using the Enterprise File Fabric with BlockChain for Secure Governance and Compliance of Company Files

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.

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.

Version 3 of SME Rest API Released

We’ve updated our Rest API to accommodate Public Files. We’ve had quite a few suggestions for the API which are mainly centered around what people want to see on top of Amazon S3. We think this is becoming more important as Amazon S3 is becoming increasingly important as storage place for Cloud data offerings. Essentially our REST API is a layer on top of this that provides business functionality API’s for the data. There are of course other initiatives with providing a file system API for Amazon S3 but we have concentrated more on providing business functionality for stored data which we think will become increasingly important moving forward. This of course will be accessible to all S3 users when we finish the work to open up our platform to any S3 User.
