Storage Made Easy provides an Enterprise File Share and Sync (EFSS) Platform for the Amazon S3 scalable storage platform (and for Amazon S3 compatible storage).
Amazon provides a development toolkit to enable access to
Amazon S3, and organises data in containers that are called
Buckets. These are not intuitive when working with data.
Storage Made Easy overlays a file system on top of Amazon S3 which
provides users the real look and feel of a genuine file system. This
means users can create folders inside of buckets without having
to create a new bucket.
Storage Made Easy also enables access from "Cloud Drives" on Mac, Windows and Linux desktops to enable users to access Amazon just as they would a normal network mapped drive. The SME Solution also supports secure access to Amazon data from any mobile device, and SME supports iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices.
User access can be controlled, monitored and logged using the SME governance controls. Amazon S3 is also enhanced with a visual permission wizard, Active Directory / LDAP integration, full audit logging, GEO restriction, BYOD controls, and Audit Watch features for real time file alerts.
All Amazon S3 regions are supported and other Amazon features can also be managed such as bucket creation, folder creation, reduced redundancy control and also Amazon S3's encryption control.
The SME software solution is offered as a hosted service by Storage Made Easy, on 3rd party infrastructure such as Amazon EC2 (IaaS), or as a software Appliance that can run in a customer’s own data center or on-site.
