  • 1. STORAGE MADE EASY IS THE PRODUCT TRADING NAME OF VEHERA LTD REG NO: 07079346 WWW.STORAGEMADEEASY.COM Investor Newsletter WHAT IS A CLOUD FILE SERVER? The Cloud File Server unifies information from different file stores and SaaS services to make them easier to access,   search and manage. Over 45 file Clouds and services are supported and unlike other vendors no files need to be moved, copied or replace to provide this service.     It acts as an enabler for  IT to 'take back control of the data compliance challenges presented by Cloud Services,   as well as those more broadly presented by e-compliance., privacy,   consumer protection,  Intellectual Property,   and content governance.   As well as being available as a SaaS Service and as a hybrid on-premise solution, it is also available as an appliance for Service Providers to use with their own Storage Solutions enabling Service Providers to create their own packages and rebrand the desktop and mobile tools. Storage Made Easy Hybrid Cloud File Server Overview Cloud Computing is maturing fast. More and more applications and data are being built for the cloud, in the cloud, and being moved onto the cloud. No-one can benefit from this more than small. corporate and enterprise businesses. Cloud Computing enables access to applications on a rental basis that may not have been affordable previously. It also allows the ability to centralize IT functions that are currently costly and difficult to manage. The File Server has long been a staple part of any office. However as Cloud Apps such as Google Apps, Amazon S3, Salesforce, BaseCamp, Office 365, EMC Atmos etc., become more common across companies, then centralizing file access and control becomes more and more difficult.This is why we designed the Cloud File Server, to solve the challenge of information aggregation, management, and control of all of a companies Information Clouds, from a single unique view. The Cloud File Server is available as an online SaaS service with desktop and mobile access clients, or it is available as a ‘hybrid’ Cloud Application that can be installed on-premise as a ‘virtual appliance’ in which VMWARE, XEN, Hyper-V and KVM Appliance formats are supported. The ‘hybrid’ Cloud application enables companies to expose internal files at the same time as integrating Cloud files and SaaS Applications whilst enabling governance and control across all data sources.
