Installable Enterprise Sync & Share Solution
Create a Dropbox-like Solution for your Enterprise
This white paper describes CentreStack product and how it can be used
to create an Enterprise Sync & Share solution, completely on-premise, and completely
under your Enterprise's control.
Online storage solutions are so easy to use that Enterprises have seen employees
using them as a quick way to pass files around for easy
access. As a result, corporate data can be easily leaked to third party sites and
storage and can quickly go out of the enterprise's control.
Early in 2012, IBM banned its 400,000 employees from using Dropbox and other well-known
applications on the corporate network.
A better solution would be to create a dropbox-like service that is completely owned
by the Enterprise, from the backend storage to the front-end web browser,
desktop client and mobile access solutions.
You can use CentreStack and your own file server as the backend storage.
You would put the CentreStack server farm inside a DMZ zone. On the
front side firewall, you can have port 80 and port 443 open for web based access
and remote access. On the back side of the firewall, you have CIFS/SMB port
open and optionally LDAP/Active Directory port open.
Instead of using file server as the backend storage, you can have private cloud
storage services such as OpenStack Swift, EMC Atmos or Nirvanix as the default storage.
In this implementation, instead of opening CIFS/SMB ports on the back side of the
firewall, you will open 80/443 port to access the cloud storage service via the REST/HTTP
You can use CentreStack to create an Enterprise-owned and operated
file sync and share solution. The solution covers browser-based access, desktop
clients, file server clients and mobile apps.
