CTERA Portal is a scalable cloud service delivery platform that you install at your own data center or in a cloud environment and use to create, deliver and manage cloud storage applications, including a Global File System, file access via stubbing/caching, backup, and mobile collaboration. CTERA Portal is compatible with cloud storage infrastructure from multiple vendors, including EMC, Scality, IBM COS, HPE, and cloud storage providers such as and AWS and Azure.
CTERA Portal enables you to extend Global File System to users, via CTERA Edge Filers, CTERA Agents, and CTERA Mobile apps. The portal ensures data consistency, maintains version history, and facilitates file sharing among users, regardless of their access method. Both global source-based deduplication and data compression are used to ensure that only incremental data changes are transferred for storage in the cloud, and that data blocks are stored only once. This dramatically reduces storage capacity needs and overall network traffic.
CTERA Portal enables you to create one or more tenants, called Virtual or Team portals. These tenants are accessed by end-users and management staff via web-based interfaces. CTERA Edge Filers and endpoint CTERA Agents are centrally managed from CTERA Portal using a single web-based console. Template-based management, centralized monitoring, customized alerting and remote software and firmware upgrade capabilities make it easy to manage gateways of various types and sizes as well as individual endpoints – up to hundreds of thousands of connected devices – with no need for on-site IT presence in remote locations.
