NetApp Filer/FAS is a family of highly scalable, network attached storage (NAS) appliances from NetApp. NetApp file share filers are high-performance, scalable storage products used by large enterprises. Many organization use the NetApp FAS appliances to store documents and files and make it available as network shares via LAN. They are typically exposed as CIFS or NFS shares in LAN and offer low latency access to large files.

Current Challenges Due to Current Pandemic

Many organizations in manufacturing, architecture, financial and education verticals have several terabytes of data stored in on-premise storage appliances (Isilon, Filer and others). Today, telework has suddenly become mandatory due to COVID-19 outbreak, and the working-from-home situation has introduced new challenges in terms of accessing and sharing files from outside the network. Office teams are finding themselves unable to access the files stored in on-premise servers that they need for work. FileCloud offers a quick, easy and powerful solution to solve this challenge.

Want to Access Files Stored In On-Premise NetApp Storage Appliances From Anywhere?

FileCloud helps users to access enterprise file shares stored in Isilon appliances from anywhere. It offers seamless access to enterprise file shares without VPN. Integrated with existing IT systems in place (AD, NTFS and Storage appliances such as NetApp FAS, NetApp FTP). Maximizes ROI by utilizing existing IT infrastructure investments. No migration of files and permissions is needed.

Unlike NetApp NTFS permissions, FileCloud allows organizations to keep their existing NTFS permissions for access control which is unique to FileCloud. Imagine a scenario where you have 1000’s of users and migrating their access rights to a different system is a herculean task and not practically feasible. FC helps to avoid that situation of migrating permissions and files and keep the organization running.
