Egnyte Launches Storage Sync for EMC VNX Product Family

Egnyte, the only provider of a complete suite of enterprise file services built from the cloud down, today announced a native integration with the EMC VNX product family, transforming VNX enterprise storage into an enterprise file services platform. Egnyte’s unique hybrid - cloud and on-premises - architecture combined with the power of VNX enables businesses to support file-oriented use cases that demand high performance and infinite storage capacity across multiple sites.

With Storage Sync for EMC VNX, companies can manage 100 percent of files across the corporate data center, at remote offices and in the cloud, all under a unified global namespace. With enhanced security controls and a centralized view to manage all data, devices and users, IT can cloud-enable existing VNX deployments to provide users with fast local and secure remote access to files of any size and from any location or device.

The VNX integration leverages EMC’s powerful Common Event Publishing Agent (CEPA) API to implement bi-directional sync, maintaining the high-performance envelope of the VNX product family. The easy and intuitive installation takes minutes and eliminates any downtime for customers by offering immediate remote access to data stored in VNX. Egnyte is also designed to integrate with Active Directory, LDAP and SSO to simplify policy management and maintain a central source for defining and managing users, devices and files.

Egnyte’s file services solution offers:

  • Enterprise file sync and share for internal and external collaborators
  • Cross-site synchronization for remote office or branch office (RoBo) deployments
  • Policy-based migration and sync of on-prem files to the cloud
  • Business continuity in the event of a network outage or disaster

“Egnyte’s mission is to offer best-in-class integrations to enable enterprises to effectively store and manage files on-premises, with leading storage providers, and in the cloud. By integrating Egnyte with EMC VNX, we’re able to offer unmatched performance to effectively address the complex requirements of file services and storage access for enterprises around the world,” said Vineet Jain, co-founder and CEO of Egnyte.
