Peer Software Expands Global File Service Across Heterogeneous, On-Premises and Cloud Storage Systems

PeerGFS 5.0 resolves file management and replication issues; Increase productivity of distributed project teams with fast, local access to file data

CENTREVILLE, Virginia, May 10, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–peer software, today announced PeerGFS 5.0, an enterprise-class software solution that helps customers solve data management challenges with file and object storage in multi-site, multi-vendor, and multi-cloud environments. Improve the solution with a new Using dynamic storage (DSU), customers can now leverage the benefits of a distributed file system while controlling storage growth and costs at remote branch office (ROBO) sites.

PeerGFS enables enterprises to create a modern distributed file system that seamlessly integrates existing storage platforms across multiple sites, on-premises, and in the cloud. Using an active-active data services framework, PeerGFS facilitates faster file access performance with local data access, high availability and data redundancy across synchronized storage systems, and continuous data protection (CDP).

“With the exponential growth of unstructured data, the cost issues of unfettered storage growth have increased dramatically,” said Jimmy Tam, CEO of Peer Software. “While IT admins want to take advantage of the benefits of a distributed file system, the added cost burden of storing fully replicated copies of data at each site can strain budgets. With DSU, they are now able to set policies on what data and how much is cached PeerGFS’s ability to install quickly and integrate seamlessly on top of existing on-premises and cloud storage investments also means customers don’t have to need to purchase additional proprietary special-purpose storage appliances just to implement a distributed or global file system.”

In addition to the ability to replicate, sync, migrate, distribute, share, and collaborate on files across their global environment, Peer also provides rich, in-depth analysis of file system characteristics and activity loads to more intelligently manage the explosive growth of unstructured data and planning for the future.

PeerGFS solves many data storage problems, including:

  • Data agility – PeerGFS breaks down data silos and enables building a distributed file system across mixed storage systems (Microsoft Windows, NetApp Data ONTAP, DellEMC Isilon/VNX/Unity, Nutanix Files, S3, and Azure Blob) through a quasi-real asynchronous system. time replication/synchronization between systems.
