Create user home directories in AT&T Synaptic Storage, Mezeo, Amazon S3, Windows Azure, Nirvanix, Google Storage, and more
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., September 30, 2010 –(Online PR News)– When cloud storage access solution provider Gladinet (http://www.gladinet.com) launched its cloud-attached file server, Gladinet CloudAFS(TM), customer response was overwhelmingly positive. Users applauded the functionality of CloudAFS, which allows small and medium-sized businesses to attach cloud storage to their file servers, and seamlessly migrate their IT infrastructure to the cloud. Now, in response to customer requests, Gladinet has added home directory support to CloudAFS.
The new feature makes it easy to move usersâ€™ home directories â€“ the locations where they store their files â€“ from file servers into the cloud. The process is so simple that the creation of multiple home directory accounts can be automated by selecting a single checkbox during setup of Gladinet CloudAFS. And users will enjoy seamless access to their cloud home directories without additional Active Directory configuration.
Gladinet CloudAFS gives small and medium-sized businesses the ability to add unlimited, on-demand cloud storage to their existing file servers. Using local storage as tier one, CloudAFS turns the cloud into tier-two storage. Users can access and back up their data in the cloud directly from their Windows, Mac and Linux environments via CIFS/SMB/NFS protocols, or directly from Cloud Desktop. The result is expanded secure storage capability at a cost significantly lower than that of adding additional on-site storage. By facilitating automatic home directory migration for multiple users, Gladinet CloudAFS extends these benefits to more corporate users using their preferred cloud storage service.
â€œWith the addition of multi-user home directory support, Gladinet Cloud AFS effectively bridges the gap between the power and low cost of cloud storage and the security and easy accessibility of the enterprise file server,â€ stated Jerry Huang, CEO of Gladinet. â€œThe Gladinet developers came through for our customers wishing to migrate to the cloud, and we think users will be pleased with the outcome.â€
