Choose the right storage solution to meet your needs

Every enterprise has special requirements. With a range of storage solutions for on-premises storage, cloud storage, or a hybrid model, Citrix offers secure and seamless access to data, wherever you are.

With Citrix, users also have access to existing network shares without migrating data—which means files in SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, ECM systems, and other document libraries are available easily and immediately. Through Citrix StorageZone Connectors, companies can connect to their files no matter where they’re stored.

Overall, we believe this to be a first-grade enterprise system. Navigating existing firewalls and integrating with legacy systems and applications remain huge hurdles for true enterprise mobility.

On premises 

Companies may want host their own data for various reasons. To do this, an enterprise creates what’s called a StorageZone in its data center. A StorageZone is a Citrix ShareFile feature allowing remote access to users. It also has the ability to connect to other applications through StorageZone Connectors. On-premises storage is ideal for strict data compliance, as it limits user access and keeps data secure through file encryption.

In the cloud 

For enterprises that need greater flexibility and quick setup, Citrix has a cloud solution. With Citrix ShareFile, the workforce can conveniently share, sync, and store data through secure in-cloud storage. It’s a cost-effective solution that grows according to need.

To further ensure information safety, data is placed in a choice of worldwide locations managed by Citrix. Because data is hosted across many servers, files are accessible whenever required, even during unforeseen disruptions or disasters.

We no longer have to use an expensive-to-purchase, expensive-to-maintain server. ShareFile has helped us move to entirely cloud-based computing.

Hybrid model 

Global organizations need the globally scaled flexibility. A hybrid storage option provides the safest storage solution. When data is placed in a company’s own data center, files meet compliance requirements and high levels of security. This also gives the user freedom to choose which files to share through a Citrix cloud service.

The hybrid model fits best for international companies that want to use the cloud to save on storage and maintenance costs, while also having on-premises data centers to uphold regional compliance policies. It’s cost-effective and the most customizable solution for your business.
