Now, the R1100, in conjunction with CloudNAS Enterprise, delivers the most versatile 3-in-1 global file services solution for unlimited file storage, multiple-office sync, and disaster recovery. 

“With customers demanding larger on-premises cache gateways to handle large data sets, we are intr oducing R1100 to accelerate their global workflow. As data growth continues to compound, our Cache & Sync Technology and Global File System have done well for businesses who need to collaborate globally with large files,” said Paul Tien, founder and CEO of Morro Data. “CloudNAS Enterprise, now with the addition of CacheDrive R1100 and Active Directory support, addresses the highest demand of global file sharing by providing a large cache with 10GbE network connection.” 

With the introduction of CacheDrive R1100 and Morro Data’s software support for Microsoft Active Directory, installation is nearly plug-n-play. The R1100 delivers 16TB of cache drive capacity in a compact 1U form factor. This allows IT professionals to seamlessly integrate the R1100 into racks, making it an immediate upgrade to an existing data workflow. 

Additionally, the CacheDrive R1100 was built for enterprise-level performance thanks to its Intel Xeon Quad Core processor, ECC memory, enterprise hard disk drives, and 10GbE networking. Together with Morro Data’s CloudNAS Enterprise service – featuring Morro’s Cache & Sync Technology and Global File System – the CacheDrive R1100 delivers one of the most robust, cost-efficient solutions for larger scale operations in the cloud.
