Coronado Free NAS Gateway
The Coronado Free NAS Gateway has been developed for personal use only and is designed for individuals that require access to Cloud or Object Storage buckets using a traditional Windows or NFS interface. This Free version is identical to the BridgeSTOR Coronado Gateway but does not support Active Directory or Gateway Encryption. Unlike most NAS appliances, users are allowed to access the local Centos 7 instance to run native Linux Applications, setup security or send data directly to cloud over the local mount point. All BridgeSTOR products do not write objects in a proprietary format cloud format unless gateway encryption is enabled. The object in the cloud will be in the same format as the file on the ground. Shipped as a virtual machine the Free Gateway may be installed in less than 15 minutes. All that is required is an existing or new bucket or blob, credentials and the endpoint address to the Cloud Storage. After connecting to the share, users or current applications may use a drive letter from Windows or a mount point from Linux to easily transfer files to and from Cloud Storage while newer S3 Applications may also read/write to the same files.
