Coronado NAS Gateway

The Coronado NAS Gateway has been designed for businesses that require access to Cloud or Object Storage using a traditional Windows or NFS interface. The Coronado NAS Gateway is equivalent to any other Windows or Linux NAS appliance including the ability to connect with Active Directory or LDAP for local security. The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache includes a Coronado NAS Gateway which improves local performance by adding background threads for writing to the cloud and a caching layer for recovering the most used files. Campus environments may order additional Coronado NAS Gateways to allow for additional distribution of files.

Coronado allows users access to the Centos 7 instance to run native Linux Applications, setup security or send files directly to cloud over a local mount point. The Coronado NAS Gateway writes file to the cloud in a native format and will not mangle or use a proprietary format. The object in the cloud will be in the same format as the file on the ground. The Coronado NAS Gateway only requires a new or existing bucket, bucket credentials and a cloud endpoint. The Gateway may be deployed in as little as 15 minutes. Windows and NFS users may easily connect to the Coronado NAS Gateway using existing tools and applications accessing cloud storage as if it was local. Click here to purchase and download the OVA

The Coronado NAS Gateway supports the SMB and NFS protocols allowing users of existing applications to easily access Cloud Storage. When using multiple Coronado NAS Gateway’s from multiple locations, the BridgeSTOR software creates a single name space allowing for access to your files anywhere in the world.

The Coronado NAS Gateway supports multiple clouds providers including Amazon, Backblaze, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, RSTOR and Wasabi to name a few. Coronado also has the ability to support Multiple Clouds or multiple regions within a Cloud Vendor.

The Brooklyn NAS Edge Cache allows local caching of Coronado NAS Gateway files and supports the mirroring of these files to multiple regions or locations. The most accessed files stay local and may be recalled without egress fees from Cloud vendors. The Brooklyn Edge Cache ships with a single Coronado License allowing a turnkey Cloud NAS solution.

The Coronado NAS Gateway supports supports the Amazon S3 API. Object Storage that supports the Amazon S3 protocol should work seamless with Coronado. The Coronado Gateway may also talk to multiple Object Storage nodes with a multi-threaded round robin protocol. This allows for high-speed performance.

The Coronado Cloud Gateway like any other Windows Servers fully integrates with Microsoft Active Directory not only for user authentication but also for full file based ACL control. The BridgeSTOR Active Directory support allows existing applications and Folder access to be the same as Folder access from on-premise storage. All metadata on files are also kept, modify date and time, owner, group etc.

The Coronado Cloud Gateway, like any other Linux servers allows support for internal Linux applications. A Cloud Bucket is mounted as a local mount point in Linux This mount point is approximately 90% POSIX compatible and should run most local applications. The only difference is the files are stored in the cloud and not in the local Linux Storage.

The Coronado Cloud Gateway provides XTS AES-256-bit Military Grade Encryption. All data is encrypted prior to being sent over the wire and is stored encrypted in the cloud. XTS encryption is a sophisticated multi-key encryption which extends the AES industry standard. The Administrator creates and maintains an encryption phrase with the second key generated by an internal BridgeSTOR algorithm guaranteeing two files that are the same will be encrypted differently.

The Coronado Cloud Gateway is stateless. The only data stored in the instance are the Bucket Name, Bucket Keys and timeout values, all other data is stored in the Cloud Bucket. A new Coronado instance and data availability may be brought up in minutes.

Multiple Coronado Cloud Gateway instances may sit behind a Load Balancer. If a Coronado instance fails, the load balance may easily send it’s data to another Coronado instance.

The Coronado Cloud Gateway is shipped standard as a Virtual Machines (OVA) and currently supports VMware, Nutanix, Hyper-V, VirtualBox, Linux KVM and Amazon AMI’s. An ISO image is available for companies that want to use their own hardware for running the Coronado Cloud Gateway.
