Distributed enterprises with many branch offices and remote offices (ROBO) have a uniqe set of requirements that cannot be met with traditional enterprise storage solutions. In industry verticals including retail, commercial banking, gas stations, and public services, such as postal services, medical clinics and schools there are organizations with numerous sites (often thousands), but even smaller scale organizations find it difficult to provide adequate, cost-efficient storage solutions to their remote sites.
Enterprise branches create and use a lot of data, not all of which is necessarily stored centrally at corporate HQ. The unique characteristics of such an environment pose many challenges:
With CTERA, enterprises can launch a private storage cloud that provides data protection and collaboration for its remote branches, while being highly cost-effective and easy to use by non-IT personnel.
Using the CTERA Portal at the datacenter, and deploying CTERA appliances in branch offices, enterprises provide their branch offices with robust data protection while reducing IT overhead and avoiding the need for on-site IT personnel.
