Distributed file sharing
WHAT IS IT?
The solution is a file sharing and collaboration solution especially for geographically dispersed project teams, this can easily be achieved through real-time file replication.
The solution ensures the same data exists on all participating storage systems, regardless of where changes may occur. It is easy to install, powerful to use and seamless to end-users.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
This solution is best used in scenarios where you have high volume server transactions, these can be over networks using LAN and WAN links.
The solution really helps in situations where there are multiple location users editing the same file simultaneously, if this describes your environment this solution will perfectly help you achieve this.
WHAT ARE ITS FEATURES?
* Real-time replication allows file events to be mirrored immediately.
* Centralised management console allows IT administrators to easy configuration.
* Only the changes of a file are replicated for bandwidth savings.
* Real-time replication from on-premises storage systems into Cloud Solutions.
how does it work?
PeerLink replicates shared project files to each office site in a distributed environment so that end users are guaranteed high-speed LAN access to shared files no matter of their file size. By replicating the data rather than centralising files into a single data repository, PeerLink can eliminate any slow file access across a WAN, proving to be a best in breed solution. Version conflicts are prevented through integrated distributed file locking.
WHO ELSE USES IT?
