Key features of CTERA

Flexible deployment options

With IBM Cloud Object Storage as the backbone to this solution, you gain flexibility in your choice of deployment options. You can deploy on-premises, in the IBM cloud (dedicated or shared deployments) or in combination as a hybrid solution.

Secure enterprise file collaboration

CTERA offers your business a highly secure enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) solution that helps you boost operational productivity and better protect sensitive company data. The EFSS solution also offers a robust suite of security features, giving administrators and IT teams better visibility around access and sharing, while private encryption keys allow you to remain in control of your content.

Remote data protection and backup

The CTERA cloud server data protection solution offers a cloud-neutral platform to safeguard and back up your data either in the cloud or from cloud to cloud. This multitenant, scalable platform is better aligned to modern business needs and provides more granular data protection and faster data recovery from the cloud. Source-based encryption and backup architecture mean that data is robustly protected and more efficiently backed up.

Improved file sharing across many sites

The cloud drive and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) file storage circumvents the need for file servers and office network-attached storage (NAS) by connecting your organization to the cloud infrastructure of your choice. Your team can store and sync information across your business in a private, virtual private or public cloud environment and manage access, devices and performance from a central dashboard — lowering costs and avoiding onsite visits.
