Enterprise File Services:
Storage Gateway

Cost-effectively expand your storage capabilities by supporting central data protection

Digital transformation is driving significant growth in terms of the data stored in the cloud. Our Storage Gateway Service helps you manage this growth, replacing existing file storage systems and integrating with your preferred Cloud environments, for fast and secure file access.

What are Storage Gateways?

Storage Gateways provides a Storage-as-a-Service delivery platform

The Storage Gateway Service provides you with an Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform that combines on-demand file services, automation, and support for software-defined data centres. Exponential-e will design, build and implement the service, in collaboration with your IT team, then provide ongoing management and 24 / 7 support, for maximum service availability.

How it works:

  • Local virtual or physical appliances are stored at your geographic locations or in the Cloud.
  • A cache of data is kept locally for fast local access. This data is replicated to each Storage Gateway location to ensure consistency across the business.
  • Different cache policies can be applied to each gateway, based on the location’s requirements.
  • All data can be protected centrally in the cloud, using Exponential-e’s geo-protected S4 Object Storage.
  • Files which are not locally cached on the gateway are stubbed so that they can be pulled back from the centralised S4 Object Storage upon access request.
  • Cold data can be auto-archived to S4 Object Storage, freeing up capacity on the local Storage Gateway.
  • As data is present in all locations, collaboration can be applied as a follow-the-sun model, making it simpler and easier to edit content from all locations.

Key use cases:

  • Direct replacement of file servers, with consolidation and optimisation of delivery.
  • Direct replacement for file sync and sharing solutions, such as Dropbox.
  • Archiving capability, with lifecycle management policies.
  • Reduction in cost of backup for unstructured data.
  • File collaboration and versioning across multiple locations.
  • Direct integration with Active Directory authentication, allowing seamless integration with users.

Single pane of glass

Centralised data management and appliance administration is provided via a single pane-of-glass portal, which is accessible by both you and Exponential-e. This Central Management platform can enforce centralised data protection polices, such as Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Anti-Virus (AV) across the stored data.

The Central Management platform also allows you to control the way data is managed across the Storage Gateway Service, as well as manage all of the relevant policies concerning data caching and data replication to other appliances.
