Ease Application Integration & Realize the Benefits of
Object Storage with the Familiarity of NFS
WOS Access delivers all the scalability, performance, management and TCO benefits of object storage, with the familiarity of NFS and CIFS for easy application integration. WOS Access can synchronize gateways across multiple geographically distributed sites to present a globally accessible single federated namespace up to 23PB in size. Each WOS Access gateway can be HA protected with active/passive failover. Modifications to the local namespace are transmitted to other gateways.
At the same time, modifications at remote gateway namespaces are applied to local namespace. Files written in one location are seamlessly replicated to another using the WOS Object storage replication policies. Replicated files provide data protection, disaster recovery and low latency access by applications in multiple geographically distributed locations enabling a global workflow. Read and write performance can be scaled out across multiple gateways into a single or multiple mount points.
WOS Access features full support for Access Control Lists (ACLs), LDAP, Active Directory, group/user levels, and identity authorization. Authorization is per file/directory. WOS Access NFS features an advanced, intuitive, browser-based graphical user Interface (GUI) for easy setup and management, providing a simplified way to monitor and control status.
