What is a Cloud Storage Gateway?

Smart Cloud Gateway

Cloud storage gateways enables you to integrate offsite or cloud-based repositories with your local servers and infrastructure. Once configured, you can access your files, VMs and block-based data, stored in the cloud, as if they’re on your local system. 

Typically, cloud storage gateways are available as virtual appliances and hardware appliances. StoneFly offers both virtual gateway appliances and hardware gateway solutions with support for cloud caching. 

How StoneFly Smart Cloud Storage Gateway Works

 StoneFly Smart Cloud Gateway enables you to put your data in the cloud of your choice and access it as if it was stored on your local system. You can use the cloud gateway solution for file-level (NAS), block-level (SAN), and object-level (S3) data. Moreover, you can also provision and run Virtual Machines (VMs) in StoneFly storage in Azure blob, Amazon S3 and any other S3 compatible cloud repository.  

Smart Cloud Gateway

The Smart cloud storage gateway can be configured as:

  • AWS Storage Gateway
  • Azure Storage Gateway
  • StoneFly Private Cloud Storage Gateway
  • Cloud Storage Gateway to any other S3 Compatible Cloud
