This white paper describes CentreStack for service providers.
The product can be used by managed service providers to provide an access layer (browser, mobile,
desktop and file server access) around storage services and on-premise file server storage. The end result is a branded cloud sync
& share, team collaboration and backup solution managed by the service provider.
MSPs providing managed exchange servers, file servers, web servers and other
managed services are looking for cloud solutions to enhance their service portfolio.
They are looking for a solution that is similar to Box/Dropbox and can be branded
in the service provider's name and use the provider's own storage services.
Some MSPs have excessive NAS storage, or SAN Storage with low utilization rates and
are looking for solutions that leverage the existing storage service to provide additional services.
Other MSPs have adopted OpenStack Swift, EMC Atmos or Nirvanix for cloud storage
services and are looking for access solutions that work together with the cloud storage
service in their own data center.
Previously MSPs offered online backup solutions that are based on Mozy or other branded
backup solutions. Their cloud offerings were limited to backup functionalities
which did not
provide a complete solution for synchronization, sharing and collaboration.
CentreStack for service providers covers not only backup functionality,
but also file synchronization, sharing and team collaboration. The access clients include web
browser based file managers, mobile applications, desktop clients, a cloud storage
gateway and file server clients.

Benefit 5 - Scale to Multiple-Server Farm

leverage existing storage services and provide browser based access, mobile device

access, sync & share and team collaboration.
