CTERA has declared today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Digital Workplace Competency status.

FREMONT, CA: CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, announces that it has acquired Amazon Web Services (AWS) Digital Workplace Competency status. This designation states that CTERA has demonstrated deep experience helping customers build a digital workplace on AWS to free end users from the office, allowing them to work securely on virtually any device, anywhere, at any time.

AWS Digital Workplace Competency enables the customers to find highly specialized AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners providing solutions on AWS that effectively support remote workers and business continuity with the end-to-end Digital Workplace the cloud. APN Technology Partners is achieving this newly unveiled AWS Competency. It provides features that help reduce security risks and meet compliance requirements while allowing customers to support remote workers and effectively implement business continuity plans.

Achieving the AWS Digital Workplace Competency segregates CTERA as an APN member with deep domain expertise in one or more of the following core categories Endpoint Management, Application Management, and Collaboration Platforms.

“We are proud to work with AWS to set the pace for universal file access and collaboration in the post-COVID-19 era,” says Oded Nagel, CTERA Chief Strategy Officer. “Achieving the AWS Digital Workplace Competency is reflective of our continued investment in global file system technology that extends corporate file systems to the edge and ensures users remain fully productive and secure in WFH environments.”

AWS is allowing scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. In order to support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS started the AWS Competency Program to allow the customers to identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

CTERA unifies enterprise file services and leverages AWS scale and economics, enabling distributed organizations to replace the aging NAS infrastructure with a cloud-native global file system.

With the pandemic accelerating remote work adoption and making low-latency, secure file access a corporate priority, CTERA allows customers to effectively support any physical or virtual desktop infrastructure requirement while optimizing storage costs user productivity.

CTERA facilitates a worldwide file system for Amazon WorkSpaces, a managed and secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution, to enable high-performance file access and collaboration for users wherever they are. Access to the worldwide file system is presented as a local drive on the user’s machine for physical laptop users. In both deployment models, the user experience is familiar, and usually, accessed files reside locally for optimal productivity and performance.
