What are the Main Features?
Access Your Files Anywhere
Gladinet Cloud provides access methods to IBM SoftLayer OpenStack Swift from a web browser, native
desktop client, iOS App, Android App, Windows Phone 8 and file server. When you
are on the road, you can use the mobile applications to access your files. When
you are in the office, you can connect to your on-premise file server for access.
You can also access them from your desktop at home or use a web browser from any
location on any client.
Seamlessly Migrate Local Folders to IBM SoftLayer OpenStack Swift
Gladinet provides unique synchronization technology that allows you to attach local
folders to cloud storage. Attaching a folder means that its contents immediately
become accessible to any device from any location (even before the sync is finished).
It also means that the attached folder will be synchronized with the cloud and any
changes made in the cloud from a remote mobile device will be synchronized back
to the attached folder. This is a powerful solution with no bulk ingestion roadblocks.
Collaborate with Team Folders
Administrators of the team account can create team folders for collaboration. Once
a team folder is created and assigned to a user or group, the team folder will appear
in the root of their Gladinet drive. Users can lock/unlock files, add comments and
Gladinet Cloud enhances IBM SoftLayer OpenStack Swift by providing encryption, file locking, auditing
and permission control at the folder level, with client-side enforcement.
Share Files and Folders
You can share folders and files with your team members. Team members receiving these
shares will see the files and folders under the "Files Shared with me" folder. You
can assign read-only permission or full access to the shared items. You can also
share folders and files with someone outside your team, who doesn't have a Gladinet
Cloud account. They can receive read-only access, protected by a password.
File Server Migration
Gladinet Cloud Server Agent is part of the Gladinet Cloud. By connecting your OpenStack
Swift cloud storage to a file server, multiple office users can then connect to
the file server without a Gladinet client through file shares on the LAN. This has
multiple benefits. For example, it unifies file structures across multiple sites
into a single namespace and can be used to seamlessly migrate your existing file
server to the cloud.
User Management and Active Directory Integration
If you have at least one Gladinet Cloud Server installed inside your active directory
domain, it can serve as the authentication integration server helping to import
active directory users into your Gladinet Cloud team account, with single sign-on.
You can also setup LDAPS if it is available. End result is you can access OpenStack
Swift Cloud Storage, with your own Active Directory identity.
