CTERA Portal is a scalable cloud service delivery platform that you 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 enables you to extend the Global File System to endpoints, such as CTERA Edge Filers, CTERA Drive, and CTERA Mobile apps. The CTERA 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 Portals and endpoints 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 CTERA Edge Filers 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.
A team portal, also referred to as a virtual portal, is designed for the needs of a company or team with multiple members. The users in the portal are the team members. Team portals are managed by team administrators, who are team members with the Read/Write Administrator role.
All users in the team portal share, by default, a single folder group, enabling cooperative deduplication between all members of the group. Furthermore, when the cloud drive feature is used, each user receives, by default, one personal folder, and can create multiple additional personal folders. Users can share personal folders. Each user also receives access to a projects folder that is visible to all the users in the portal. Users can create projects to collaborate with other team members.
