Use cases

  • LucidLink Filespaces™ is a cloud-native high-performance file system for distributed workloads. LucidLink’s SaaS offering works with any object storage, providing streaming access to data as if it were on a local drive. Using LucidLink, organizations gain flexibility, convenience, and substantial cost savings, with the assurance of sophisticated “zero-knowledge” end-to-end encryption that protects data at rest and in-flight.

    The service is transparent to end-users and delivers multiple use-case advantages, such as:


    Remote Access to Cloud File Servers

    Achieve significant savings by deploying cloud “file servers” or file shares remotely.

    • Move on-prem network shares and file servers to the cloud
    • Eliminate infrastructure such as storage appliances, gateways, and caching devices
    • Gain universal, single-point data access from any internet-connected location
    • Reduce deployment times and boost savings in operational and upfront costs

    Direct Cloud Backup

    Drive operational efficiencies and stay a step ahead of ransomware or data corruption with direct backup to the cloud—no additional local storage, special gateways, or connectors needed.

    • Stream backup files and images from anywhere
    • Recover data on-demand, from any remote location
    • Set snapshots to automatically preserve data at specific intervals
    • View or restore data to a particular point in time

    Economical Active Archive

    Combine archive and retrieval into a single solution, using economical storage while maintaining file access from anywhere.

    • Gain immediate access to data for current and future use
    • Use any cloud object vendor
    • Access both hot and cold data from the same location without a separate process
    • Use economic capacity storage while maintaining quick access to random files

    Run Production Workloads on Object Storage

    Free up nearly 80% of high-performance and high-cost storage for file-based workloads while maintaining consistent access to archives.

    • Ingest data directly into a Filespace using object storage
    • Utilize any software without refactoring or using a connector
    • Experience streaming and caching equal to NAS
    • Reduce complexity and shorten data transport times

    Remote Access & Collaboration on Shared Data Sets

    Enable global workforce collaboration with immediate and concurrent data access that’s as straightforward as sharing a local drive.

    • Stream files on-demand, regardless of the file size or geographic access point
    • Edit files stored in the cloud without downloading or syncing
    • Share information securely at rest and in-flight with end-to-end file encryption
    • Support multiple operating systems (Windows, Linux, macOS) and any file type
