We have just added a great new feature – File Approvals – to our Enterprise File Fabric. Here’s an example of how it works:by
HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that handles protected health information (PHI) must ensure that strict protocols and protective security measures are adhered to. But maintaining the HIPAA standards of security over electronic information can be difficult especially with outdated storage systems.by
Data Governance policies play a key role in all organisations that handle digital information. Ensuring you have strong Data Governance policies is one thing, but how do you implement them? Being unable to implement them properly exposes your company to threats, whether they be internal, or external.by
Object Storage is the way forward for all your storage needs, it’s adaptable meaning it grows with your storage needs, it’s economical, being that you only pay for what you need, but it does also have a number of drawbacks. Object Storage is not easily accessible to end users, and often it lacks auditing controls, which can open your business up to a whole range of problems around security and governance of data.
So what do you do? Struggle on with Block storage that is often increasingly difficult to enlarge when your company grows? Or move to Object storage and struggle to keep control over your data?by
More and more companies are turning to Object Storage to handle the growing amounts of structured and unstructured data that is corporately generated and consumed.
As companies move to this new storage paradigm IT is struggling to not only manage, index, and secure the newly migrated / stored data, but also having difficulty with figuring out how they can expose access to users.by
OpenStack Swift is more than an enabler to store large amounts of unstructured data. The massive scalability, geographic dispersion, and REST API Access are a way to achieve some compelling use cases, of which the most popular is undoubtedly file sharing.
In the past Enterprise File Share and Sync has been more traditionally associated with file-based storage platforms but as such storage platforms struggle to scale and don’t naturally lend themselves to be web accessible pairing Enterprise File Share and Sync with object storage solutions such as OpenStack Swift has become much more compelling for enterprises. Not only from an ease of use perspective but also from an ROI perspective.
This post looks at the “must have” features that should be demanded from an OpenStack Swift Enterprise Sync and Share vendor.by
One of the new features in the updated App was to provide the ability to View, edit and create Microsoft Office files directly from the data stores configured for the SME Sync and Share Appliance.
To be able to do this firstly ensure that you have installed the SME Cloud File Manager from the Android App Store.by
The below video is a deep dive on how to setup Active Directory / LDAP for seamless integration from the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Share and Sync with a Swift Container.
The deep dive is done against a SwiftStack cluster and it also demonstrate how, as part of the auto-provisioning, data retention and versioning policies can be set to handle corporate data compliance rules.by
Now that we are two weeks on from OpenStack Vancouver we thought it would be useful to provide a roundup of how the event was for us and what was announced with regards to OpenStack Swift object storage.
The event centre itself, in Vancouver by the bay, was spectacular as was the layout of the event itself:by
We have released a new version of OpenStack Swift Xplorer for Android. Although the native SME Cloud File Manager supports OpenStack Swift, Swift Xplorer is a dedicated stand alone App with Swift support only.
Notable features in the update are:
– Support for V1 and V2 OpenStack authentication (Keystone and SWAuth).
– Brand new OpenStack red theme
– Support for Hubic OpenStack service (which used the Oauth authentication mechanism)
– Support for MP3 and Video streaming
The App is available from Google Play and is free for personal use.by
