New Storage Solution From PROMISE Technology Brings Private Cloud Storage Service to Businesses

All-in-One Cloud Storage Solution Combines Hardware, Software to Enable Anytime, Anywhere Access; File Sharing and Synchronization

HSINCHU, TAIWAN and MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- PROMISE Technology Inc., a recognized global leader in the storage industry, today announced the launch of its new all-in-one cloud storage solution -- FileCruiser. A private Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution for Enterprises and SMBs, FileCruiser allows businesses to build their own secure, scalable private cloud storage service.

BYOD
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement -- in which employees bring personally-owned mobile devices to the workplace -- is creating challenges for businesses. Security breaches can occur, and the ways in which employees connect, communicate and collaborate can be affected. With FileCruiser, PROMISE is addressing these concerns. FileCruiser intelligently syncs files across all of a user's devices (with an app for both iOS and Android); gives anytime, anywhere data access and offers FTP replacement for file sharing, team collaboration tools and email attachment integration. FileCruiser supports thousands of accounts and gives IT administrators control by allowing them to set limits on the size and types of files users can upload and sync.

How is FileCruiser Different?
In contrast to public FSS services, FileCruiser is deployed on-premise -- all hardware and data is located in the users' physical location. Users can manage the entire system, including hardware and software configuration, eliminating the security concerns of confidential data in public services.

Additionally, a business-class features set, low total cost of ownership, flexible architecture, ease of deployment and maintenance, seamless integration with existing IT systems, and powerful API for integration with users' systems set FileCruiser apart from competitive offerings.

"Cloud storage is an enabler for innovation, collaboration and productivity," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "It provides a means for mobile access that keeps workers connected and contributing. This is one of the reasons we see the amount of data being stored in the cloud growing at such a rapid pace. However, we know that in a business setting, security continues to be a top concern. With FileCruiser we're not only offering Dropbox-like services, but also building in enterprise level security in a platform that is designed to be deployed as a private cloud to deliver the highest level of protection."

Intelligent Features

  • Access and sync data anytime, anywhere
    • Easily sync large-sized files
    • Continued data transfer (resume support)
    • Multi-platform support
  • Team collaboration with access controls
    • Role-base access permission controls
    • Share link with password protection and expiry date
    • Version control and recovery
  • Enterprise level security
    • Remote wipe
    • Data encryption in transfer and storage
    • 2-factor authentication
    • Secure sharing and collaboration
    • Reporting and auditing tracking
    • Windows® AD, LDAP

Deployment
FileCruiser can be implemented on various hardware platforms, including on a 3U-16 bay Intel® x86 server-storage appliance, which is suitable to be deployed by SMBs. In addition, if performance demands it, FileCruiser can be implemented on multiple Intel x86 1U servers connected to PROMISE storage. FileCruiser provides the redundancy to protect both servers and storage.

Scale-out Storage Platform
The debut of FileCruiser marks the first step of PROMISE's plan to introduce a lineup of innovative cloud solutions that address the rapidly expanding data storage and access needs for businesses and organizations. PROMISE will launch its first scale-out cloud storage appliance for Virtual SAN this Fall -- the PROMISE H1970 -- which consists of 70 hard disk bays with two independent server nodes that provide high availability, high storage capacity and high networking throughput. When combined with VMware Virtual SAN technology, the H1970 is able to consolidate free disk space in different servers into one virtual storage pool and can be used as a VDI appliance and Virtual Appliance -- ideal for remote branch office or departmental offices. A cost effective, green storage solution that lowers cost per terabyte, requires less cabling and rack space and reduces electricity costs, the H1970 is also a good fit for deployment by datacenter vendors for hosting purposes.

PROMISE will be demonstrating the benefits of both FileCruiser and the H1970 at VMWorld in San Francisco next week -- stop by booth #2517 on the show floor to learn more.

Availability
PROMISE's FileCruiser is currently available through the PROMISE global network of distributors and value added resellers and comes in multiple models to meet the demands of users on various scales.

So you’ve heard how click-to-call widgets can really enhance a website’s potential for customer interaction and you want to try it out for yourself. Or you’re considering offloading pieces of your VoIP infrastructure, but want to see how that would unfold first. Where can you find this technology, that’s free and available to try out? Spotting the potential in a space where customers can experiment with these types of features, Voxbone is launching The Workshop.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations u...
