xCache

xCache is the technology behind Morro Cloud Storage Gateway. It performs file syncing and caches recently accessed files, enabling high-speed file access. Morro Cloud Storage Gateway has 1 TB and xCache Expansion Unit has 2 TB of cache respectively, storing large number of cached files for better performance.

 

Cluster

Morro Global File System has a cluster architecture - more gateways can be added in a cluster to increase its processing and cache capacity. One cluster is associated with an office location (an office or a department) and consists of up to 8 Cloud Storage Gateways and optionally up to 16 Cache Expansion Units, all connected on a network.

 

Global File System 

A file system is a logical structure for files being organized on the storage. Files in Morro Global File System are stored in Morro Cloud Storage, cached on the Cloud Storage Gateways globally, and accessed either on premises or on the Internet.  

 

Share 

A share is a top level folder on a network. In Morro Global File System, files are accessed via shares on the gateway and do not take up disk space in user’s PC. Share belongs in Pool.

 

Pool 

A pool is a collection of shares that have the same properties such as versioning policy. Multiple pools can be defined for different storage properties. All files in a pool are de-duplicated, minimizing cloud storage space used.

 

User Share Permissions 

Share access permissions can be set per user/group. Individual file / folder access control can also be set from Windows / Mac.

 

Location Aware Permissions 

Access to shares can be restricted based on which gateway is used and whether the user is on premises.

 

ECHO 

ECHO mirrors files between a share and a third-party file sharing service such as Dropbox or OneDrive. Via ECHO, the user's Morro File System is connected to third-party file sharing services for external sharing or collaboration.
