Telefonica Launches Cloud Storage Services For Businesses, Powered By CTERA

MADRID and PETACH TIKVAH, Israel, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CTERA Networks, the leader in cloud storage enablement, today announced that Telefónica (NYSE: TEF), one of the world's largest telecom providers, has launched cloud storage services using CTERA's Cloud Storage Enablement Suite, including secure file sync & share for laptop and smartphone users, and hybrid backup using cloud storage gateways.

The service, named "Disco Virtual en Red", is fully Telefónica-branded and aimed at addressing the storage, file sharing and data protection needs of Telefónica's enterprise customers in Spain. " Disco Virtual en Red" is available as part of the IT offering for the entrerprise market at Telefónica's Aplicateca business app store and in its Fusion Empresas offering.

The CTERA's Cloud Storage Enablement Suite, used by Telefónica, comprises a cloud-side service delivery platform, on-premises cloud storage gateways, and agents for servers, laptops and mobile – all with a unified management interface.

CTERA was selected for its ability to scale to hundreds of thousands of customers, while seamlessly meshing with existing billing and provisioning systems, including Telefónica's own Aplicateca business app store.

"We identified a need in the market for Spain-based, secure cloud storage services," said Andres López Hedoire, marketing manager, cloud security and management at Telefónica. "We chose CTERA as our partner in creating this innovative service because they provide a unified platform for enabling cloud storage services, supporting the scalability we need and the security that our customers expect. Thanks to CTERA's multi-tenant architecture, enterprise customers have their own 'private hosted' environments, with complete separation of data, security and access privileges."

Telefónica is hosting the cloud infrastructure in its own datacenters and is able to monitor and troubleshoot devices and software agents remotely, as well as perform remote firmware and software upgrades.
