Optimize File Sharing in the Cloud

Run applications in the cloud easily while avoiding the cost of re-architecting.

Effective File Sharing in the Cloud

File storage is ideal for many enterprise applications and is also commonly used for a variety of general-purpose file sharing workloads such as home directories, eDiscovery, storage for Linux and Windows virtual machines. Cloud storage can satisfy the scale, availability, and functionality required for your general file sharing needs. The right cloud storage includes the intelligence and automation needed to accelerate innovation with increased operational efficiency.
