StorageZones – Choose where data is stored
ShareFile with StorageZones gives IT the flexibility to choose between customer-managed StorageZones allowing IT to leverage on-premises storage within their private cloud or Citrix-managed secure cloud storage options in multiple worldwide locations.
With StorageZones, IT is able to place data in the organization’s own datacenter to meet unique data sovereignty and compliance requirements. Customer-managed StorageZones also enable optimal performance by giving IT the ability to store data in close proximity to the user and can be easily integrated with the organizations existing infrastructure as they are designed to support any CIFS based network share from any storage vendor. Since storage is a key element of the customer-managed StorageZones, Citrix has joined hands with NetApp- a leading storage solution provider. Citrix and NetApp have tested the compatibility of their solutions together to simplify and accelerate deployments of StorageZones.
