DDN | WOS® Access
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.

DDN | WOS® Cloud
Turn-key Solutions for Providing Storage-as-a-Service
WOS Cloud lets Service Providers host multiple tenants and allows for individual branding, web addresses and email notifications for each tenant. Multiple billing and subscription revenue models are supported with usage-based reporting for pay-for-use billing models. The features, scalability, performance, low cost and management capabilities of WOS Cloud enable new higher margin, content-based applications and revenue streams for cloud-based service providers.
In addition, WOS Cloud provides a complete, secure, behind the firewall file sharing and sync solution for the customers of service providers. This enables anytime, anywhere access from smartphones, tablets, desktops and laptops with the ability to store and share any kind of data. Collaboration features, including commenting and versioning, are included along with synchronization capabilities from Windows and Macs.
WOS Cloud provides a secure multi-tenancy storage environment with multiple administrative roles, multiple data access roles, and multiple path access roles/methods. The storage environment includes a hierarchy of administrative ownership of stored data. A service provider can perform a variety of management actions on a virtual storage container, including the ability to create and destroy containers, or apply specific policies on behalf of the tenant. Each CDMI object belongs to a single domain, and each domain provides user mapping and accounting information providing the ability to monitor usage by each tenant for billing or other purposes.
WOS automatically replicates data to other nodes in the WOS cloud, based on pre-assigned policies. So, even if a drive fails or an entire WOS node goes off-line, data can be retrieved from the other nodes. Files stored in WOS can also be protected with ObjectAssure™ erasure coding on a single copy, reducing storage requirements. Unlike RAID protected systems, WOS can instantaneously recover from disk failure by accessing another copy of the data. WOS features built-in data integrity and silent data corruption detection and repair. Not only is data better protected, it also requires reduced service response and management urgency, which is a critical advantage in large scale, distributed environments. WOS systems can be managed remotely with zero physical access.

DDN | WOS® Share
Behind Your Firewall Enterprise File Sharing,
Transfer & Collaboration Solution
WOS Share is an easy-to-deploy, enterprise-grade personal storage solution that enables end users to securely store, share, and access files, anytime and anywhere from multiple devices without violating IT policies. This allows corporate IT departments to provide a completely turn-key distributed storage and collaboration solution, while remaining in complete control of both company data and the storage infrastructure.
With WOS Share, all data is stored behind your firewall and integrates with your existing identity management system (AD, LDAP, and any PAM-supported authentication). Security is enhanced by encrypting data in flight and data stored on disk. WOS Share provides compliance level auditing of all transactions, audit logs for usage analysis and granular control over storage containers. With encryption of data in transit and at rest, the WOS Cloud solution supports data integrity as mandated by security regulations. Files can be shared securely, while the file owner manages the access levels for anyone granted access to the file or folder.
Smartphones and tablets have become the most effective and utilized business tools today. WOS Share provides iOS and Android smart phone and tablet users access to their information from a convenient, familiar and intuitive interface. Customers can easily access and share files in the cloud, without storing a single file on the phone. Photos, videos and music can be uploaded to the WOS Share solution be accessed from any other access points around the world. Users simply access the local file directory from the easy-to-use menu, select files and save online.
With the WOS Share Desktop Sync Client, WOS Share appears and acts like a Windows or Macintosh network folder, allowing users to easily drag and drop files in and out of cloud, as they do with any local folder. Files are seamlessly saved and restored from any Windows or MAC based application.
