Data is the life blood of a company. All aspects of a business rely on data that is sent and received on a daily basis. However, users are now experiencing more disruption in their daily workflows as data is spread out between on-premises and cloud servers. This causes businesses to  experience a loss in productivity due to time loss and overall inefficiencies in processes. Businesses need a solution that can offer a single point of access to all data sources that is available on any device while still being able to maintain the ability to manipulate content resources for their job.

This is where solutions like Citrix ShareFile can help.

Citrix Sharefile: Connecting and Protecting your Data

ShareFile gives your IT team they need to assert better control over how your corporate data is stored, accessed, synced, and shared. It also allows your users the ability to continue being mobile with data without compromising on the data security and control your IT has. The best part, it doesn’t matter if the data is on the cloud or on-prem.

Unlike most traditional synchronization tools that are built more for desktops, Sharefile comes with a drive mapper functionality. This means that businesses can help save on storage costs across when using a VDI infrastructure as the it will only cache content as its accessed. Users will be able to connect an account as a mapped drive on the Windows file system without the need to perform a full sync of account content. This is done through the Citrix Files app which supports a variety of storage apps like SharePoint, OneDrive, and most ECM Systems.

Virtualization Support: IT can use the same file sync-and-share solution across both physical and virtual endpoints, and across on-premises and cloud storage. And because content access from the Citrix Files app is stored as a cache on a user’s virtual desktop, it reduces unnecessary network traffic in the data center.

Storage Flexibility: Store files on premises, in public clouds, in private clouds, or in any combination. The same file sync-and-share solution experience is used across both physical and virtual endpoints.

Reduced Storage Costs: Files can be stored in multiple locations without the need for duplication on devices or storage zones.

Anywhere, Any Device Access: Connect a ShareFile account as a mapped drive on the Windows file system, without performing a full sync of account content.

Flexibility: Provide a single point of access to multiple data repositories, including networks shares, OneDrive, SharePoint, and personal cloud repositories.

Faster Virtual Connections: Because the Citrix Files app does not sync files into the virtual desktop, files are fetched from their respective source only when a user opens that file, and the virtual desktop integration is more efficient.

Manage your Data and Analyze your Data Effortlessly and Efficiently with Pure Storage and Oracle®

Manage your Data and Analyze your Data Effortlessly and Efficiently with Pure Storage and Oracle®

In today’s business, storing data properly has become business critical.  Analyzing the right data against other data types (internal or by global standards) can be key in improving your business and putting it in the right direction.  This process is known as Digital Transformation.  To begin the transformation, companies must be able to store, access and analyze their data efficiently and as fast as possible so that they can gain insights before their competition does.  Just asked yourself, are you analyzing your business data like customer support emails or their chat logs?  If not it would be best if you started now before your competitors do.  Below is a simple guide to mapping your data with data management application Oracle®:

  1. Data value starts with operational data (transactions), structured data stored in Oracle® Database.
  2. Data becomes more valuable with the addition of data warehousing and business intelligence to provide descriptive analysis of your business based on historical data.
  3. Data value is greatest when you combine all of your data assets — structured and unstructured — to gather predictive and prescriptive analytics from different sources, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and other application data to fully participate in the era of digital transformation.

Below are ways in which Pure Storage can help your infrastructure make Oracle® effortless and efficient when analyzing your data:


  • All-flash solutions take half as long to deploy as other storage solutions and with Pure Storage’s solution, you can be sure of its simplicity and validity as they have been fully tested and validated.
  • Fast and efficient Pure Storage snapshots let you automate the copy, clone, and refresh processes of an Oracle® database and reduce the time to copy and clone up to 90%.
  • Pure Storage solutions let you run Oracle® databases for development, test, quality assurance (QA), and production for online transaction processing (OLTP) and online analytical processing (OLAP) workloads on the same Pure Storage platform.


Data Reduction

  • Pure Storage solutions include both in-line lossless deduplication and compression for ultimate data reduction, which can help data reduction of 3 – 5 times the conventional Oracle® data types — such as number, date, char, and varchar.
  • By running your Oracle® solutions on Pure Storage, you not only compress data to lower its footprint and reduce storage needs, you also do away with the need for Oracle® compression.


  • Pure Storage all-flash solutions improve performance by orders of magnitude, with sub-millisecond latency, no disruptions, and no effect on performance for upgrades or maintenance.
  • Pure Storage uses flash instead of disks, which eliminates the performance delays caused by the inherent latency of disk storage, which means you can run Oracle® OLTP and OLAP solutions in parallel on the same Pure Storage all-flash storage platform.
