Gladinet Cloud web portal has a new look in the upcoming release this weekend. The goal is to make it more touch friendly and close to the touch artworks. The design is to make it simpler and at the same time more elegant.
The following video shows how to setup a service template inside HP CloudSystem Matrix with basic Windows Server 2008 R2. After that, we can start the virtual machine and install the Gladinet Cloud Enterprise in the HP CloudSystem Matrix.
The end game is an enterprise private sync and share solution running inside the CloudSystem Matrix/Virtual Machine/Virtual Network environment.
We are seeing more and more Enterprises deploying OpenStack Swift as an enterprise wide object storage platform. After that, they are looking for a sync and share solution that they can self-host and self-deploy, side by side with their OpenStack Swift solution.
This article documents a quick and easy setup of Gladinet Cloud Enterprise as the enterprise sync and share solution on top of OpenStack Swift.
Step 1: OpenStack Swift as the Storage Layer
First the enterprise need to have a storage layer. Most likely they will use OpenStack Swift. It can start with a simple 4-nodes or 6-nodes setup and scale to bigger size later on.
The OpenStack Swift can have either private API access or public API access. Either one is fine.
Step 2: Install Gladinet Cloud Enterprise
The second step will be install Gladinet Cloud Enterprise, where the Gladinet Cloud Enterprise servers can access the OpenStack Swift via API access.
Gladinet Cloud Enterprise is built on top of Microsoft Web Platform, including Windows Server, Internet Information Server, .NET Framework, SQL Server (and Express) and ASP.NET. This makes it very straight forward to install on Windows Server 2012.
This video documents how to get it installed on Amazon AMI Server 2012. It is very straight forward. It all started with picking the clean OS image to start with:
It is about 50 days into the new year and there are already many changes in Gladinet products and solutions. Here are some of the most important ones.
Mobile Client Enhancements
iOS client added many features, such as multiple file upload, thumbnail viewing for directory listing. Added token support for security.
Android client added many features as well, such as multiple file upload, offline support, and token for security.
Large Active Directory Support
In January, we simulated an internal active directory forest that covers 3 sub-domains, containing over 300,000 users. This is largely driven by our enterprise partners. As a result, Gladinet Cloud Enterprise supports very large active directory integration.
Better OpenStack Swift Support
This is also driven by our partner as more and more are taking on OpenStack Swift as an internal private deployment. Gladinet Cloud Enterprise has been tested against OpenStack Swift again and again, first with Rackspace Cloud Files, then with HP Cloud Object Storage, and now with private enterprise deployments. Each steps alone the way, the OpenStack Swift support is up a level.
More to Come …
There will be many more exciting features coming to Gladinet. Stay tuned.
