Maldivica, a leading innovator of cloud storage access and migration solutions, today announces a starter version of the Maldivica Storage Connector targeted for small to medium sized business deployments. The Storage Connector simplifies interaction with cloud storage by presenting it as a local network share. The virtual appliance, with both CIFS and NFS support, makes it easy for businesses to transfer data from Windows, Mac, or Linux/Unix environments into or out of cloud storage.
Maldivica is designed to enable hybrid environments, seamlessly connecting offices and datacenter locations with the capacity and reliability of cloud storage. The platform is ideal for uploading web content and digital media for content distribution, creating active data archives, or migrating collections of unstructured data for analysis and processing in the cloud.
The starter version of the Maldivica Storage Connector is priced to be attractive to SMB organizations with smaller storage demands. It is a full-featured virtual appliance that allows businesses to connect to public cloud storage without programing or installing software on every user machine. The system provides data encryption with customer-controlled keys for protection in-transit and at-rest in cloud storage. The Maldivica Storage Connector avoids technology lock-in and enables customers to access their data directly through the storage API using any authorized application.
“Cloud platforms are transforming the ways organizations do business and most companies are just starting to realize the benefits. Properly integrating cloud services with existing operations remains a challenge,” says Maldivica CEO, Adam Bane. “Many of today’s integration options use proprietary techniques that lock businesses into a particular technology. We avoid that. The Maldivica Storage Connector provides the tools to start leveraging cloud storage today, and the freedom to continue using it with the applications of tomorrow.”
