This white paper describes CentreStack. The product allows enterprises to create an enterprise
file sync and sharing solution (EFSS) that enables productivity and collaboration across multiple devices for
mobile users. Without this kind of solution, an enterprise may be subject to data threats caused by users moving
data through uncontrolled personal cloud services. CentreStack takes this a step further by allowing the enterprise
to define the solution based on private or hybrid cloud storage deployments.
As the CIO of an enterprise or a medium sized business, you are now faced with the Dropbox
problem. Employees are using Dropbox to backup some local folders and make them easy to access oer the
Internet. However, from a business perspective, it is not good knowing that
company documents may be scattered on multiple PCs and in different places on third party hosting sites, creating
liabilities for regulatory obligations and leakage of business secrets.
You can't simply say no to personal Dropbox accounts. Instead, it would be great
if you could self-host and manage a dropbox-like service for your business and give
your employee a replacement solution that is also user friendly while remaining
under your own control.
Gladinet CentreStack provides a solution for the problem above. First it enables
you to install and host the solution completely on-premise or inside a trusted service
provider's data center. Second, it can be integrated with the file server storage,
SAN storage or NAS storage. This is a solution that you completely own and control.
Benefit 1 - Support Active Directory Users
There is no additional setup to add active directory users to the solution. Active
Directory users can simply log in to the on-premise file sync and share web portal. When
an employee leaves company, you just simply turn off his/her active directory entry and
the access to the solution will be turned off as well.
Benefit 2 - Native integration with Home Directory
Optionally, user's home directory information will be directly used for web browser based and
mobile device access. At work, employees are used to accessing the company wide personal home directory. Outside,
they will each have access to the same home directory.
Benefit 3 - Integration with Your Own Storage
The solution can be integrated with your own storage, whether it be file server
storage, SAN storage or NAS storage. You can also connect to your own
public cloud storage services.
CentreStack should be installed on Windows 2008 R2 servers, or
Windows 2012 R2 servers as shown in the following configuration. You can connect
the Active Directory to the CentreStack user manager.
You can also connect your local file server to the CentreStack Server.
CentreStack leverages the local connectivity to Active Directory and
enterprise's own storage solution to create a self-hosted enterprise file sync and share
solution, putting security and control back in the hands of the enterprise.
