StorVault’s File System Cloud Storage (FSCS) is a cloud-native file service
connecting file systems to object-based cloud storage. It streams files from
cloud object stores directly to clients, eliminating the hassle of copying or
syncing, while providing highly secure end-to-end encryption. With FSCS,
clients can mount and use cloud object stores as distributed file systems.
Designed specifically for extensive data access over distance, to improve
workload efficiency and maximise productivity.
Object storage consumption is growing at a
ever-accelerating rate, fueled by
explosive growth in the amount of data being generated from an expanding
number of workloads that are finding a home in cloud environments.
Although object storage is secure and scalable it is static and lacks a file system
interface. It is challenging to access object storage in a way that matches
disk-level performance. And it is hard to consume as an end-user, or application,
especially in distributed workflows.
FSCS creates the best of both worlds – it delivers a highly sought-
after solution for a setup where users and applications can connect to the same
single name space, exposed as local disk but backed by object storage.
FSCS combines concepts from distributed databases, log-structured file
systems and cloud gateways to completely re-think cloud storage; building a
cloud-native file system on top of object storage to create a limitless file system
as a service for object storage accessible from anywhere.
Highly scalable and inexpensive object storage can be consumed as a local file
system layer that allows users and applications to access it from anywhere. This
can be used to replace on-premises file servers, allow distributed teams access
to their data, and provide ways to connect applications, cloud regions and
cloud providers to the same data set
