CTERA Networks has been designated by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to be a Storage Competency partner as part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) Competency Program. CTERA said that its inclusion in the program is based on customer successes, technical proficiency, and its cloud-enabled enterprise storage portfolio.
Cloud computing may be the wave of the future, but it is far from secure and a lot of work still needs to be done to perfect it. Just ask all of those women celebrities whose naked pictures were stolen and released over the Internet. And Snapchat just had a million private pictures belonging to its users hacked.
Based in Petah Tikva, CTERA declares that it revolutionizes storage, data protection and collaboration for enterprises and SMBs. Its hybrid architecture combines secure cloud storage services with on-premises appliances and managed agents. The company says that its scalable cloud service delivery platform is used by leading service providers and enterprises, on the public or private cloud infrastructure of their choice.
The APN Competency Program is designed to highlight top-quality APN Partners that have demonstrated success in specialized solution and vertical areas. In support of CTERA’s focus on key horizontal use cases for enterprise cloud-enabled storage, CTERA’s Cloud Storage Services Portal, managed network-attached storage (NAS), and backup solutions are now featured on AWS’ new Storage Competency Partners webpage.
With CTERA, organizations no longer require the branch office IT infrastructures and data protection processes of the past, and can rethink how they deploy data storage to remote offices for local file sharing and backup. CTERA’s comprehensive ROBO storage solution combines cloud storage gateways with integrated NAS, file sharing, and cloud backup capabilities that simplify disaster recovery, centralize management, and lower ROBO storage costs.
“We are proud to work with AWS to deliver a versatile cloud storage services platform that addresses several use cases for modern IT organizations, ” said Liran Eshel, CTERA CEO and co-founder. “Attaining the Storage Competency is further industry validation of the breadth and functionality of the CTERA Cloud Storage Services Platform and the expertise of the product team behind it.”
CTERA’s Cloud Storage Services Platform for AWS combines Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) with on-premises cloud storage gateway appliances, managed end-point software agents, and mobile apps all in a unified, hybrid architecture that delivers storage, data protection and collaboration capabilities in a single, cost-effective solution.
