  • File Names are not changed: Unlike some other Ceph solutions Nasuni Access Anywhere Server does not transcode or change file names. SME is completely open and does nothing proprietary with files stored on Ceph.
  • Cloud Drives: SME provides Cloud Drives for Mac, Windows and Linux that integrate Ceph directly into the business desktop.
  • Cloud Sync: SME provides native Sync from Ceph to the business desktop for Mac, Windows and Linux.
