Storage Made Easy is exhibiting its accelerated data transfer File Fabric solution at the OpenStack Summit in Berlin


The File Fabric's M-Stream technology increases file transfer speed and resiliency for Object Storage including OpenStack and Ceph.


London, 31st July 2018 - Storage Made Easy® (SME) announced they are presenting their Enterprise File Fabric solution during the OpenStack Summit in Berlin, a renowned event where clouds, containers and computing take center stage.




Due to digital transformation Petabyte-scale Object Storage is becoming common place, enabling performance, reliability and scalability. With increased storage usage, new challenges are faced: Companies are creating large amounts of new digital data which needs to be moved at high speed between users and the object storage, and between object storage and other storage tiers.

During the Summit, James Norman, Engineering Manager at SME, will present a live demo on How to transfer assets between storage tiers quickly and efficiently? How to archive data onto Object as part of our existing workflows? How to distribute content stored on Object Storage securely?

The Enterprise File Fabric is being used by a North American broadcaster who broadcasts over 5,000 hours of programming annually on its flagship network alone. Users get streamlined access to data with the fewest possible impediments, while at the same time enforcing effective controls to block unauthorized users of sensitive data.

Files can be transferred at high speed, parallelizing uploads and downloads and assets on-premises and on-cloud can be indexed and searched across a single namespace in real-time. Users no longer need to use off-property third-party sites to share proprietary information -it could be left in place and shared under the governance of corporate security policies.

Jim Liddle CEO said, "Storage Made Easy has been an OpenStack exhibitor for many years now and we are pleased to be able to exhibit the latest version of our Enterprise File Fabric for OpenStack and Ceph that has a focus on data transfer acceleration utilising our unique M-Stream technology."
