Targeting MSPs and VARs, CTERA Networks introduced a number of enhancements to its cloud storage operating system this week, including bare metal backup, server backup and file sharing.

According to an article posted on Enterprise Storage Forum, CTERA’s Cloud Attached Storage family combines cloud and local storage, data protection and collaboration (file sharing) in a centrally managed appliance-based system.

Recent enhancements include incremental, disk-level backup of workstations and servers, backup and recovery of Windows servers (including Exchange, SQL Server and Active Directory), and collaboration features that allow users to share selected files and folder stored in the cloud or on local appliances.

CTERA also introduced the C400 appliance, which has up to 8TB of local capacity, RAID-5/6, and support for 50 to 200 users. All of the company’s appliances are remotely manageable and work in conjunction with the CTERA Portal to enable MSPs and VARs to deploy managed cloud storage services.
