Optimizing Enterprise File Services

Protect Your Business Against Data Loss
Introducing Cloud Attached Storage™ from CTERA, an award-winning approach to data protection that works both locally and online to give you the ultimate protection against loss of data, whether due to human error, hardware failure or local disasters.

Fully Automated: Set & Forget
There are no tapes to swap nor any kind of error—prone human intervention required. As soon as it’s set up, the CTERA appliance automatically backs up the specified folders. Because online backups run straight off the appliance, there is no impact on PC performance and you can continue your work uninterrupted.

Cost-Effective, All-in-One Solution
Are you still using tape backup? File servers? Perhaps you burn DVDs and take them home, or use a consumer PC-based online backup solution? Forget separate solutions for network storage, local backup and off-site backup—this does it all, does it well, and is remarkably easy to use.

The CTERA cloud storage gateway appliances aggregate backups from multiple desktops, laptops and servers at your location, de-duplicate the data and send it to the cloud in an optimized, bandwidth controlled stream that keeps your Internet connection clear. Multiple appliances and CTERA Agents can be defined to de-duplicate against each other globally, further reducing WAN load in multi-site environments.

CTERA’s user-friendly software and Windows shell integration means that end-users can perform simple operations such as single file recovery and restoring previous versions themselves, with no need to call the IT helpdesk. You determine what and how much is backed up to the cloud, giving you complete control over cloud storage costs.

Both CTERA appliances and CTERA Agents encrypt all files before they are sent to the cloud using strong AES 256-bit encryption, and you can choose a personal passphrase known only to you to access those files. Backup is performed both locally and to the cloud, providing you with an extra layer of protection for disaster recovery and fast restore from the local appliance.
