CTERA Networks Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
CTERA provides cloud storage solutions that enable service providers and enterprises to launch managed storage, backup, file sharing, and mobile collaboration services using a single platform and based on the cloud storage infrastructure of their choice. By utilizing a hybrid architecture combining cloud storage gateways, managed end-point agents, and a cloud service delivery platform, CTERA’s solutions optimize performance, deliver end-to-end security, and extend cloud storage to address the needs of enterprise remote offices/branch offices (ROBO), mobile employees and those of SMBs.
The CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform harnesses the power of the cloud to replace legacy file storage systems without compromising security or performance. CTERA’s edge filers and endpoint clients provide a hybrid connection for remote sites and users to a global file system powered by any public or private cloud infrastructure. With CTERA enterprises gain new levels of multi-site productivity and centralized data management while keeping costs under control.
Its management system, which is called the CTERA Portal, is a multi-tenant service orchestration system that was designed to manage thousands of sites and tens of thousands of users. Some customers prefer to subscribe to it as-a-service, while large organizations typically deploy a private instance from their own cloud or on-premises.
CTERA Networks Recent Developments
In April 2020, CTERA launched DevOps tools that allow enterprises to automate file services delivery on a global scale. The CTERA Software Development Kit (SDK) for Python and the CTERA Ansible Collection enable engineers to rapidly provision hybrid cloud storage services across distributed topologies with thousands of edge locations, applications, and users in just a few lines of code. The rise of DevOps culture in the enterprise has been driven by the need for faster application deployments and automated IT processes for global companies. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for IT to enable remote worker productivity through the agile and frictionless delivery of remote file services to globally distributed users.

CTERA Networks Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In a world where data flows between clouds, offices and endpoints – CTERA has focused on building a secure enterprise file services platform that centrally manages the file storage, control, and governance needs of the modern enterprise. CTERA enters 2020 having realized a 60 percent year-over-year annual recurring revenue increase in its edge-to-cloud solutions, which today power more than 50,000 enterprise locations and millions of corporate devices in 110 countries.
Designed specifically for media and advertising agencies with massive creative content requirements, the new CTERA Edge Media Edition boasts 128TB of local cache, petabytes of cloud capacity, and advanced support for macOS and Adobe applications. The Media Edition is the first edge filer optimized for video editing and enables creative content teams to ingest and collaborate on large media files with clients and remote production crews.
CTERA Networks Risks and Challenges
The modernization of aging file services is a top priority for government and defense agencies, but cloud transformation initiatives introduce security risks that are unacceptable for these types of organizations. That's why CTERA can't go further on a 100% cloud platform and must overcome challenges with an on-premises, private file services platform that delivers the same resiliency, productivity, and elasticity as cloud-based file services.
