PROMISE Technology Brings Private Cloud Storage Service to Businesses

All-in-one cloud storage solution combines hardware and software to enable anytime, anywhere access. By ChannelPro

PROMISE Technology Inc., a developer of high performance storage solutions, has launched 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.

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. FileCruiser is designed to address these concerns. The EFSS solution intelligently syncs files across all users' devices (with an app for both iOS and Android). It provides 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.

FileCruiser is deployed on-premise –- all hardware and data is located in the user’s physical location. Users can manage the entire system, including hardware and software configuration, helping to eliminate the security concerns of confidential data in public services.

“Cloud storage is an enabler for innovation, collaboration, and productivity,” says 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 of FileCruiser include:

  • 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

FileCruiser can be implemented on various hardware platforms, including on a 3U-16 bay Intel x86 server-storage appliance. In addition, if performance demands it, FileCruiser can be implemented on multiple Intel x86 1U servers connected to PROMISE storage.  

PROMISE will be demonstrating FileCruiser at VMWorld in San Francisco, August 24 – 28, 2014. 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.
