The Cloud NAS 

LucidLink Filespaces cloud-native NAS solution is ideal for organizations that would like to take advantage of cloud storage economics and utilize it for applications, file systems, and high-performance workloads. Built-in software, running on the endpoint, delivered as SaaS, with no middleware and no appliance, virtual or physical. LucidLink leverages cloud-based storage with the functionality you expect from an on-premises hardware NAS – only better.

Filespaces

A Filespace is a shared global namespace that acts like any other high-performance network-attached storage (NAS) even though the data is hosted in the cloud. Designed to address the business needs around storing large data sets on and off-premise and accessing them over distance, distributed teams get secure, on-demand access to digital assets, and can collaborate on files, in the cloud, from anywhere.

Solving the problem of distance and latency

LucidLink solves the problem of distance and latency in cloud environments by reducing the traffic between applications and remote storage. By dramatically boosting responsiveness we enable file data to be delivered efficiently and streamed on-demand. Performance is further optimized by sophisticated data prefetching based on a proprietary, adaptive algorithm; parallel TCP streams; local write-back caching; and in-line compression.

Additionally, we offer advanced file capabilities like direct read/write access from the cloud, immutable snapshots, user access control, and global file locking.

How do we compare to existing technologies?

File Sync & Share

File synchronization is another term for automatic file copying, which was a clever way to overcome the past’s unreliable and intermittent connections. These technologies replicate and synchronize files to present what looks like a distributed file system, one that requires complete replicas on all participating nodes. Due to this constant replication, file synchronization puts significant demands on network and storage resources. File synchronization has thus limited its applicability to smaller data sets typically in the GB to low TB range.

LucidLink does away with synchronization and streams data on-demand directly from the cloud as needed by the application. The single source of truth is kept in the cloud. Frequently accessed data is cached locally to deliver the best of both worlds in terms of performance and flexibility when accessing TB to PB range volumes.

Cloud Storage Gateways

Frequently accessed data is cached locally to deliver the best of both worlds in terms of performance and flexibility when accessing TB to PB range volumes.

LucidLink eliminates the need for gateways, as it streams data directly from and to the underlying object-store. It untethers computing devices from their location and allows the same uniform experience, whether in or outside the office, on-premise or in the cloud.

LucidLink’s SaaS, cloud-first approach significantly expands the use cases for cloud file systems, provides much better integration with the host operating system, and eliminates CAPEX.
