Article Summary

CTERA Edge Filers seamlessly combine collaboration capabilities, local storage, cloud storage, and data protection functionality in a single, cost-effective package.

CTERA Edge Filers are available both as software-based virtual gateways in a virtual environment and as H Series gateways, which are virtual gateways running under a VMware ESXI hypervisor on a physical server.

All CTERA Edge Filers enable you to do the following, depending on the license:

  • Share files across your network.
  • Synchronize folders across your network and the cloud, including keeping the main storage on the cloud with stubs saved on the edge filer. A stub is a file with a tiny footprint that contains the metadata about the file, such as the file name, size, and modification date. Only the folder and file metadata are saved locally, not the actual file content.
  • Restore multiple file versions saved on the CTERA Portal.
  • Access file versions from anywhere, using a web browser.

Using the CTERA Edge Filers, connected to a CTERA Portal, data is transparently synchronized and saved between the CTERA Edge Filer and the CTERA Portal Global File System.
