SpireTech had been searching for a cost-effective solution for Cloud server connectivity for our clients for several years. Everything we looked at was either too expensive, did not provide security and control over where the data resides, or did not work as advertised. When we came across the Ctera product, we were very intrigued and began a multi-month, rigorous evaluation process – along with customer demos, onsite trials, and evaluations. Our clients have used the words “enamored” and “love” to describe the product.
The Ctera cloud-attached server appliances allow you to backup, share, and collaborate on your documents from anywhere! They install in your office and allow your employees to gain access to your files through your private cloud portal, hosted by SpireTech – No VPN required! The Ctera C series appliances, coupled with a reliable offsite backup in our data center, provide you and your employees with secure access to their data. They are very cost-effective, and can replace or augment existing servers you may have in your office.
Each appliance comes with Ctera agent licenses that can be installed on Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, and Mac devices; giving your users the ability to backup their files and folders, as well as a full Windows “bare metal” backup in case of a complete system failure. The appliances come in multiple sizes designed to fit your needs – from a simple USB attached storage device, to a full rack mounted appliance that holds up to 8 HDDs.
The appliances connect to private cloud portal hosted at SpireTech’s data center. Each cloud portal gets a unique, custom domain name, and the website can be branded with your logo.
You can share files and folders with clients and outside contractors using unique email invitations. You have full control over who can read and write to the folder using the email invitations, so you can ensure your documents are protected. No more FTP or huge email attachments!
SpireTech has announced several packages built on Ctera that include an appliance, onsite installation, proactive flat-fee IT support, and hosted exchange. Pricing for the Ctera appliance justifies itself based on the backup capabilities alone.
