Problems with VPN-Based Access to File Shares from AWS Storage Gateway
For many enterprises, AWS Storage Gateway is a
killer service that allows them to create a local file server that is really a
gateway that connects to AWS storage services, such as Amazon S3, Amazon S3
Glacier, Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive, Amazon EBS, and AWS Backup, providing
storage for files, volumes, snapshots, and virtual tapes in AWS. In other words,
you can build a local file server that is a very convenient front end for these
cloud-based storage services.
So what’s the problem?
The trouble is that remote access needs remain the same as a
real file server that is fully on-premises. VPN-based connections are the standard
but users tend to have trouble with them and generate lots of support calls and
So they started looking for a better VPN
alternative and settled on CentreStack. With CentreStack, they provided
remote users with an “always-on” remote
mapped drive for file shares that worked even when there were glitches in
the network or a complete loss of connectivity.
