About Peer Software
Growing your business is hard enough… Managing your growing file data shouldn’t be.
Responding to a work related need for intelligent file synchronization, Paul Marsala created the initial version of PeerSync® and founded Peer Software in 1993. In response to customer feedback, solutions for file collaboration followed shortly and project teams around the world began to enjoy the productivity benefits delivered by PeerLink®.
For over two decades, the team at Peer Software has been dedicated to creating best-of-breed solutions that help multi-site organizations manage business critical data across their IT enterprise. Peer Software is a fast growing company with offices in the USA, UK and Germany with additional coverage planned for the future.
Looking ahead, Peer Global File Service (PeerGFS™) represents the next generation of our industry leading file-management technology. It was built to meet the needs of today’s multi-site enterprises by combining the benefits of our well established PeerLink and PeerSync products plus superior manageability.
Facing the Challenge
Our world is changing rapidly. New technologies are emerging from all sides. There is no guarantee that today’s market leader can maintain the competitive advantage tomorrow, too. In addition, data growth is working against us, while we are trying to keep track of the latest innovations. But, do we really need to change the IT-strategy so frequently to be up to date? Not with Peer Software!
There is a way out of this catch-22 situation: The key is called flexibility. Companies prefer the flexibility and power of a multi-vendor strategy and so they tend to remain independent from a single storage vendor. Our PeerGFS solution interoperates with most storage providers and cloud gateways. This software-only approach enables a non-disruptive, easy implementation into an existing storage infrastructure and ensures high levels of scalability for larger environments. As no additional hardware is needed there are no hidden costs to consider either. Like all Peer Software solutions, PeerGFS is based on our DFSR+ technology. With PeerGFS you are able to create an effective platform for efficient file collaboration for distributed teams while simultaneously enabling real-time backup and high availability across the organization.
“For as long as IT has been deliverable through a distributed topology (e.g., since the shift from mainframes), organizations have struggled with delivering IT services that ensure productivity yet still are manageable. The two service-model “extremes” (decentralized ROBO infrastructure versus centralized IT delivery) both come with tradeoffs – i.e., lower productivity or increased management burden. One of the best possible resolutions is a distributed file system that enables all stakeholders (end-users and IT) to access or manage data from their local perspective without burdening the other party.
For the last 20 years, many organizations have utilized Microsoft DFS within Microsoft Windows as the best conceivable answer – but Peer DFSR+ technology has raised the bar through broader filer support, scalability,and collaboration enablement.”

“You are paying to manage your CAD Files even if you think you aren’t! With annual labor expenditures the do-nothing option demonstrates that refusing to deal with the problem is a real drag on productivity and project profitability – as well as demotivating for the project team. Implement a collaborative file management solution which achieves the highest WAN speeds, provides true version control, is minimally disruptive, and is the least expensive to purchase and install.”
