CTERA launches tool for creative content teams to migrate to the cloud
CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, is introducing a media filer to its CTERA Edge product line that delivers high performance, cloud scale, and modern collaboration to enable creative content teams to produce and share digital assets from any device and any location.
The CTERA Edge Media Edition is designed to meet the specific requirements of media and advertising content creators, packaging 128TB usable local capacity, SSD/NLSAS tiering, 8K video rendering, and native support for macOS and Adobe creative products and services.
Unlike traditional NAS systems, the CTERA filer is part of a global file system that spans multiple sites, desktops, and clouds, enabling truly distributed file services with elastic scaling and no single point of failure.
The CTERA media filer provides transparent migration from existing NAS devices with preservation of share structure and file permissions.
Intelligent cloud tiering optimizes local capacity for current projects and pinned files, while cloud security risks are mitigated through source-based encryption, firewall fencing, virus scanning and Active Directory integration.
CTERA Edge Media Edition features include:
- SMB/NFS file services with full Windows ACLs
- Cloud-based global file system across distributed sites and endpoints
- Global deduplication for optimal cloud storage and WAN efficiency
- On-demand streaming of large files from the cloud
- 128TB local usable cloud cache
- Hybrid SSD/SAS with Active-Active controllers
- macOS Spotlight integration
- Adobe suite compatibility
- Antivirus and DLP scanning
- Cloud archiving and DR
“Media firms have lagged behind on cloud transformation due to the challenging nature of modern media workflows,” said Oded Nagel, chief strategy officer, CTERA. “The new media filer provides the perfect cloud bridge for data-intensive environments, combining high local performance tuned for media-rich workflows with efficient cloud scaling.”
