LucidLink Filespaces Available on Azure

Cloud file service provides streaming data access to any cloud storage provider.

LucidLink Corp., in cloud file services, announced that its File spaces cloud-native file system supports Azure Blob storage.

Built specifically for cloud storage, Filespaces provides secure file access over distance to improve organizational workload efficiencies and maximize productivity.

As the firm continues to build out its cloud offerings, partnering with Microsoft rounds out a list of storage partners. Azure Blob storage, cloud-based object storage, enables LucidLink inroads with companies that are looking for an integrated solution that delivers rapid encrypted access to files and data stored on infinitely scalable cloud storage.

Today, we have the only SaaS-based, cloud-native file system available that works with all major cloud storage partners like Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud as well as on-prem partners like Cloudian and Scality. This means that LucidLink customers have a high degree of flexibility and choice in their storage options, whether in the cloud, on-prem, or any hybrid combination. Filespaces even support applications not designed specifically for the cloud, so legacy systems are immediately cloud-enabled,” said Peter Thompson, co-founder and CEO. “Extending support to Azure Cloud services expands our market reach and allows us to meet customer demands who are aligned with the Microsoft cloud platform.

Filespaces allow on-premises applications to mount an Azure container in the cloud and use it as a local disk. Organizations gain the cost benefits of cloud storage while retaining the performance of on-premises NAS without the high cost of deploying, maintaining, or managing hardware. It streams files on demand. It is convenient for distributed workflows, remote teams that collaborate across common data sets, and companies that need to provide secure data access to files regardless of file size or where the data is stored.

Customers deploy cloud object storage outside the traditional use cases of long-term retention and native S3 cloud applications.

Common LucidLink use cases include: 

  • Backup direct to cloud
  • Economical active archive
  • Remote access to cloud file servers
  • Production workloads on object storage
  • Team collaboration on shared data sets from anywhere
  • On-demand access to video surveillance data
