Storage Made Easy Joins Google Cloud Partner Program

The partnership enables companies to deploy multi-cloud virtual file systems in Google Cloud.

Storage Made Easy’s (SME) Enterprise File Fabric solution is now available through the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) marketplace.

Benefits include:

  • A Familiar File System - Users and administrators access and manage their cloud storage as a virtual hierarchical file system. They can use their existing desktop tools and applications, as well as drag-and-drop files and folders between storage clouds.
  • Coexisting Applications - A protocol adapter allows object-based and file-based applications to use the same storage, with no obfuscation. FTP and WebDAV spoken too!
  • Full Content Search - Find the right assets quickly through a full content search and metadata index. The solution extracts metadata and content from video, images and other media using Google Cloud ML services.

Steven Sweeting, Director of Product Management at SME said “We’re all about 'easy.' Listing on the GCP Marketplace allows prospects and customers to quickly stand up an optimal File Fabric with Google Cloud Storage for their compute cloud, desktop and mobile users. They also get great performance with our media aware indexing which leverages Google’s AutoML Vision and AutoML Video Intelligence for transcription and image recognition.”
