London-based StorageSME has expanded the range of its Cloud File Server by including Eucalyptus

London-based cloud company SMEStorage has integrated Eucalyptus Walrus into its Cloud File Server to enable customers to implement an on-premise hybrid file server.

Eucalyptus Walrus, which is compatible with Amazon Web Service’s S3 storage offering, allows users to store and access virtual machine images and user data.

In addition to the basic Walrus offerings, StorageSME has added a range of additional features. These include AES 256-bit encryption, GEO location integration, a WebDav and FTP interface, and APIs for managed files sharing. SMEStorage  said that the Cloud File Server was also provided as a pre-configured VMware image, enabling easy integration with Eucalyptus Walrus.

According to StorageSME CEO Ian Osborne, the launch has been designed to tap into the increasing demand from Eucalyptus Walrus from small businesses. "Customers can now use SMEStorage with Walrus to rapidly deploy a full data centre solution, which includes native desktop drives with sophisticated synchronisation solutions for Windows, Mac and Linux. Businesses can also leverage the rapid growth in mobility to offer sophisticated mobile clients for iPhone/iPad, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile 7,” he said.
