The new SiteLink feature of the Enterprise File Fabric simplifies deployment, provisioning and management of file services and content distribution for remote office architectures.
London –Storage Made Easy® (SME) announces its new SiteLink feature which enables companies who have remote offices in different locations to share access to local storage without having to replicate it.
Despite the wide use of the cloud, one of the challenges that global companies are still facing is that of local storage residing at each site, with each site needing on demand access to files from remote locations.
The File Fabric serves as the ‘single pane of glass’ for storing data from local (and/or cloud) data sources, and SiteLink results in efficient content distribution that effectively supports ‘roaming’ directories that are accessible to other sites.
When using SiteLink, all folder reads are free as remote users access the (remote) team folder they browse the folder directory structure from the local metadata cache. Metadata is updated in every location that has access to that folder. In addition to this, permissions of access are centralised to the corporate Identity Access Management Service, normally Active Directory, LDAP or a SAML based solution. Additionally for companies that IAM solutions at each office or on each site, this is also supported.
