Our storage solutions can address a broad range of your business needs.
Having the right storage infrastructure means being able to address more than just keep files available. Applying YFS cloud storage reduces cost and improves reliability for many business needs.
YFS brings the benefits of a private storage cloud to individuals and project teams. Users can access their documents, presentations, artwork and project files from any device, wherever they may be. Accessing this unstructured data is done securely and seamlessly whether they are at the office or on the road. Teams and individuals can set up their own directories and including authorize access to subsets of their files in order to collaborate with other people inside or outside their organizations.
Whether managing a cluster of general use workstations or back end servers, YFS enables efficient deployment and maintenance of computing systems. Once an application or configuration image is tested and ready, the atomic publishing capability can seamlessly make the deployment available to cluster computers or servers. Heterogeneous environments are easily handled through platform specific redirection. Leveraging these YFS capabilities enables replacement or new hardware to be provisioned rapidly into service, reducing valuable IT maintenance time.
When information needs to be published, whether web site, application binaries, documentation sets or configuration data, organizations can rapidly produce read-only snapshots. These snapshots can then be efficiently replicated globally, ensuring that users have the latest information regardless of their geography. If there is a local outage that impacts a particular site, services will be automatically routed to other replicated locations. Customers YFS storage appliances provide a high value proposition for this combination of high performance and high availability replicated services.
Managing multitudes of desktops and servers can be a heavy cost burden for any organization. Having the state of each machine stored locally is a major factor in driving IT costs higher. Your File System’s network storage technology enables this high cost state and user data information, such as home directories, to be stored in the cloud, reducing the cost of managing desktop, laptop and server deployments. A key YFS technology that enables fully stateless computing is platform specific redirection. Simply stated, this technology automatically detects the client operating system version and connects to the appropriate application and configuration file versions when needed. Users do not need to spend time navigating to the specific version of their intended application. Administrators can more efficiently plan and execute application and configuration upgrades without inconveniencing their users.
Many production workflows include working on files with multiple applications and transferred across various groups. A photo service may provide a storage directory for initial transfer of pictures from various field photographers. An initial stage in their workflow may perform various preparatory processing, gathering the pictures ready for review on the web site. Once pictures are selected for ordering, the photo files are transferred for final retouching and downloading. By leveraging the rich security models of YFS, access can properly controlled at each stage of the workflow. In addition, conventional applications can be integrated into a networked and distributed workflow.
