The File Fabric is deployed in a company’s office, data centre or can be deployed on-cloud.
The File Fabric is a software appliance so it can be deployed using VMWARE, Hyper-V, KVM, as an AMI or can be provisioned directly from the Google Marketplace, Amazon Marketplace or Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
The File Fabric can be configured to connect to all of a companies storage. Both on-premises and on-cloud and whether the storage is windows filers, NAS/SAN or other SMB related storage or indeed whether it is object storage such as Amazon S3, Azure et.
The File Fabric smart indexes content that is available.
No data is moved or replicated. The File Fabric indexes data ‘inline’.
Remote Workers using Windows and Mac desktops can connect to the File Fabric directly as a drive share, which uses secure web protocols (no VPN needed!), enabling users to work with Excel, Word, PowerPoint and all of their standard applications as usual from their ‘home drive’.
This is great for a hybrid working situation as workers in the office can connect to their normal home drive share and workers at home can connect to a similar home drive share that the File Fabric exposes (or indeed users can access the data from the File Fabric’s web application).
Permissions can be defined for end user access, polices defined to enforce data governance and compliance with the organization, and all user interactions are transparently audited and logged.
Additionally transparent Ransomware protections and recovery mechanisms are in place to facilitate additional protections.
This barely touches upon what is available to companies who deploy the File Fabric, but if If you want to know more please contact us.by
