This white paper describes CentreStack product and how it can be used
to create an Enterprise Sync & Share solution, completely on-premise, and completely
under your Enterprise's control.
Online storage solutions are so easy to use that Enterprises have seen employees
using them as a quick way to pass files around for easy access. However, due to
regulatory reason or security reason, enterprise can't approve the use of personal/consumer
online storage solution. Instead, enterprise needs a private file sharing and collaboration
Traditionally, SharePoint Service is the enterprise private file sharing and collaboration
solution. However, on one hand, it is cumbersome to setup and cumbersome to use,
on the other hand, employees are used to the ease-of-use of current online storage
services. The private file sharing solution needs to be easy to use, while making
it private to the enterprise.
A better solution would be to create a file sharing service that is completely owned
by the Enterprise, from the backend storage to the front-end web browser, desktop
client and mobile access solutions, and incorporate the modern web browser technology
and smart phone mobile devices into the access tier.
You can use CentreStack and your own file server as the backend storage.
You would put the CentreStack server farm inside a DMZ zone. On the
front side firewall, you can have port 80 and port 443 open for web based access
and remote access. On the back side of the firewall, you have CIFS/SMB port open
and optionally LDAP/Active Directory port open.
Instead of using file server as the backend storage, you can have private cloud
storage services such as OpenStack Swift as the default storage.
In this implementation, instead of opening CIFS/SMB ports on the back side of the
firewall, you will open 80/443 port to access the cloud storage service via the
You can use CentreStack to create an Enterprise-owned and operated
file sync and share solution. The solution covers browser-based access, desktop
clients, file server clients and mobile apps.
