File Access Point

Access Points provide an simple and secure way for providing file access to data centers, workgroups and remote locations similar to conventional file servers. Access Points translate file protocols such as NFS ,SMB and FTP straight to HyperStore object storage using the S3 protocol. Access Points can be deployed as virtual or physical appliances.

Global Namespace with Global View Manager

A local namespace can be easily scaled to a global namespace by deploying additional File Access Points and Global View Manager. Once a new File Access Point connects to the Global View Manager, file storage is immediately available and accessible to all participating locations.
