Distributed File Services Enable 80 Percent Cost Savings for State Agencies

NEW YORK, NY – May 21, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — CTERA today announced it has been awarded a statewide IT contract to deliver next-generation edge-to-cloud file services through the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). The DIR Cloud Services agreement enables entities in the State of Texas and other participating states to quickly deploy and manage CTERA solutions for remote branch storage, enterprise file sync and share (EFSS), data protection, and more.

CTERA’s proven and unified Enterprise File Services Platform helps government and enterprise organizations seamlessly transition from traditional file storage systems to secure cloud-based solutions that can reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by as much as 80 percent.

The Texas DIR provides oversight of information, data, and technology for state and local government and education agencies. With CTERA already deployed in many U.S. government agencies, including the State of Texas, the DIR cloud services contract helps simplify and accelerate IT procurement of the CTERA platform through an online portal – https://dir.texas.gov/View-Search/Contracts-Detail.aspx?contractnumber=DIR-TSO-4230&keyword=4230
