Support for Cloud Storage Routing
Cloud storage routing uses storage classes, which represent a group of one or more storage nodes that share a similar business requirement, such as location.
Storage classes can be used to provide the following main benefits:
- Data sovereignty (GDPR)
- Cost savings
- Business efficiency
New Storage Nodes
Amazon S3 Storage Node Support for a Private Endpoint
The Amazon S3 storage node supports a private endpoint. When creating an Amazon S3 storage node, the user interface to create the storage node no longer includes the s3.amazonaws.com endpoint, which is no longer supported.
Storage nodes defined using the s3.amazonaws.com global endpoint are offline until the endpoint is changed to a private endpoint.
CTERA Messaging Service
The CTERA Messaging Service enables sending notifications from the portal to various consumers, for example the Varonis Data Security Platform, which is a connector running on top of the CTERA Messaging Service.
Notifications are sent asynchronously in the background and are created in real-time from portal events.
The Varonis Data Security Platform secures data from unauthorized access and cyber-threats by locating where seudes logs to facilitate managing the site and CTERA Portal across on-premises and cloud datastores – limiting access to data and analyzing activity for abnormal behavior or indications of compromise. The integration between CTERA and the Varonis Data Security Platform enables:
- Central feed of file operations from all devices.
- Scans global file system to map files and permissions and identify sensitive data.
- Alerts on compliance violations.
A license from CTERA is required to use the Varonis service.
Edge Filer Syslog Service
The CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform powers a global file system connecting remote sites and users to your cloud without compromising security or performance. Each remote site includes logs to facilitate managing the site and CTERA Portal acts as a centralized hub to collect logs from all the edge filers and send these logs to one or more syslog servers.
Enable the CTERA Portal Behind a Proxy Server
You can configure the CTERA Portal behind a Proxy Server. When configured, external connections go through the proxy server, such as storage nodes, and antivirus servers.
See Proxy Settings.

A new role allows administrators to permanently delete end users files and folders.
