Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions;

What is a NAS (Network-Accessed Storage)?

Network Attached Storage, or NAS, is a type of computer data storage server that gives clients access to data over a network. The phrase “NAS” can describe the technology and systems utilised for this function or refer more specifically to devices created solely for this purpose.


How does CloudBox replace my NAS (Network-Accessed Storage)?

CTERA Edge Filers are the solution for organisations that want to replace NetApp filers and Windows file servers. CTERA filers are cloud-integrated and centrally managed, providing local file storage/NAS, modern collaboration, cloud data tiering and replication, backup/DR, among other services—all at a fraction of the cost traditional file storage infrastructure requires.

What if we don't currently have a NAS (Network-Accessed Storage)?

CloudBox can be used for any business with data storage and access requirements, whether or not they have had Network Storage in the past. You can read above how we helped Bennett + Bennett, who didn’t previously have network storage streamline their data storage, access, and encryption with CloudBox.

How quickly can CloudBox be deployed?

CloudBox is typically quickly deployable for all businesses, but to get a more accurate time estimate, contact Oper8 Global.

What is the storage limit of CloudBox?

It is possible to extend the capacity of CloudBox to suit any business’s needs.

What levels of encryption are available with CloudBox?
Source-based encryption at rest (AES-256) and in transit (TLS 1.2) secures your data before it leaves your devices, offices and servers. Oper8 Global can help you achieve a FIPS-140-3 level of encryption with our netG8 key management solution.
Why should I choose Oper8 Global?

Competitors generally focus on a single infrastructure technology and leave the integration to the customer. Oper8 Global seeks to solve the IT and data centre infrastructure dilemma while leaving our customers the time and internal resources to concentrate on their core business, their applications and the use of critical data.

Can we get CloudBox Demo?

Absolutely. Please get in contact with Oper8 Global today, and one of our specialists can help.

Hear what our customers have to say about CloudBox

{Oper8 Global’s CloudBox solution was the perfect choice for Bennett + Bennett. After years of using portable hard drives, we were looking for a solution that allowed us to access our data in a single, global namespace, along with the security, backup, and encryption that CloudBox offers, as the costs of cyber insurance continue to rise. We love finding technology teams as passionate about their work as we are.
