PeerLink for File Collaboration

PeerLink provides distributed teams a fast and efficient way to collaborate with shared project files. Unlike other file collaboration solutions that centralize files into a single data repository that cause slow file access across a WAN, PeerLink replicates shared project files to each office site in a distributed environment so that end users are guaranteed high-speed LAN access to shared files no matter of their file size. Version conflicts are prevented through integrated distributed file locking.


Maximized End User Productivity

By keeping hot data local, PeerLink maximizes end user productivity. Because files are close to the users, their applications and compute resources the actual performance is as fast as possible from a physical view. At the same time PeerLink ensures version conflicts are eliminated with file locking.


Easy Roll-out

Whether it is a physical or virtual system, PeerLink can be quickly and easily installed on most major storage platforms. Thus no additional hardware or changes to the existing IT infrastructure is necessary.


PeerLink can be used as a stand-alone collaboration product or as part of Peer Global File Service™ (PeerGFS).
