EgnytePlus for IBM System Storage
Cloud-enable Your IBM Storage
IBM® System Storage® DS-Series and N-Series combines best-of-breed development with leading technology. With its simple, efficient and flexible approach to storage, IBM System Storage is a cost-effective, fully integrated complement to your existing Enterprise infrastructure.
The IBM storage systems are designed to provide primary and secondary storage for midsize enterprises, consolidating all of your fragmented application-based storage and unstructured data into one single-code system. Easily managed and expandable, this platform can help IT generalists increase their effectiveness.
Your IBM System Storage sits behind the corporate firewall and provides fast local access for employees in the office. But what happens when your remote employees or business partner need to access and share files? Traditional solutions using VPN and FTP networks are complex to setup and costly to maintain. These networks are also cumbersome to use, leading employees to bypass IT altogether, using unsecure consumer file sharing services.
With Egnyte, files on your IBM storage are made available in the cloud. You can store, share and access files from anywhere, with any computer or mobile device. Transform your IBM storage into a central collaboration hub, allowing multiple teams, offices and business partners to easily work together as if they´re in one location.
Access files from anywhere, with any device
Files on your IBM storage can easily be shared using Egnyte. While in the office, employees continue to enjoy the IBM storage experience with uninterrupted file access and sharing through the LAN. Remote employees can access files in the cloud using any web browser, mapped drive, FTP client, smartphone or tablet. No matter where the user is, Egnyte syncs your IBM storage files to the cloud, providing flexible file access from anywhere, with any device.
Files originating from your IBM storage can also be accessed through any device or platform such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft Outlook, Google Docs and other workplace tools. Learn More
Share files easily between offices and business partners
IBM storage with Egnyte lets you set up a central access point for sharing files within teams, across multiple offices and with business partners. You can exercise complete control over file access using granular access permissions and audit reports. Users see only the folders intended for their projects or departments. Learn More
Collaborate across multiple offices
Deploying Egnyte on multiple IBM storage devices across multiple offices allows you to connect them together as one central access point. This helps employees of distributed offices to work seamlessly together as if they are in one location. Never again will you have to implement costly and complex site-to-site replication.
Safely backup files in the cloud
Any files synced from your IBM storage to the cloud are automatically backed up. Egnyte´s data centers are hosted on industry-leading Tier II, SSAE 16 compliant facilities. All data is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption over SSL during transfer and at rest. Egnyte´s architecture has built-in redundancy, maintaining multiple copies of your data to protect against hardware failures. In the case of disaster recovery, all your files, including past versions, can be instantly retrieved from the cloud. Learn More
Optimize network bandwidth
With a cloud-only storage solution, users are at the mercy of the network. As more of your applications are shifted to the cloud, your network connection becomes saturated, and the ability to access your files in the cloud becomes compromised. By cloud enabling your local IBM storage, EgnytePlus optimizes the network bandwidth used by storage. Administrators can configure which files are synchronized, and the synchronization frequency. When the network becomes saturated, or fails, users still have access to their files on your local IBM storage.
