Elastifile Announces Enhanced API For Elastifile Cloud File ServiceMay 31, 2019
Elastifile, the pioneer of enterprise-grade, scalable file storage for the public cloud, today announced enhanced support for API-based access to Elastifile Cloud File Service, the company’s fully-managed, scalable file storage service on Google Cloud. The enhanced service API allows users to fully automate use of cloud file storage to optimize a broad range of workflows including: SAP infrastructure, electronic design automation (EDA), HPC processing, Kubernetes deployments, and more.
As enterprises increasingly integrate cloud resources, the workflows supporting critical business processes must evolve to maximize the capabilities of flexible, cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Effectively managing dynamic, interdependent cloud resources often relies on the ability to perform complex tasks quickly, efficiently, and without the need for manual intervention. As a result, API-based automation has emerged as a crucial enabler for high-productivity cloud workflows. With enterprise file storage recognized as a key element of cloud application infrastructure, corresponding API-based storage management capabilities are necessary to deliver the required workflow automation.
Via Elastifile’s enhanced service API, users can programmatically control the deployment, management, and scaling of Elastifile Cloud File Service…thus enabling dynamic alignment of storage capacity and performance to suit the needs of associated applications. Additional features and functionality supported by Elastifile’s enhanced API include snapshots, access-control lists (ACLs), and enterprise high-availability features.
“Cloud-based automation represents a massive opportunity to simplify enterprise IT,” said Adi Sprachman, Vice President of Product Management at Elastifile. “With Elastifile’s enhanced API, we’ve delivered complete, programmatic control over scalable, cloud-native file storage, enabling fully-automated, turnkey data management.”
The enhanced API for Elastifile Cloud File Service further complements Elastifile’s robust portfolio of cloud-native data management technologies, including support for automated container orchestration via Elastifile’s container storage interface (CSI) driver and automated data tiering to object storage via Elastifile ClearTier.
Elastifile is generally available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), and bare metal on-premises environments, with Microsoft Azure availability coming soon.
