Learn about AuriStorFS – The Secure Global Namespace File System

3:00 pm–4:00 pm PDT
Sponsored by AuriStor

Moderator: Jeffrey Altman, AuriStor

The AuriStor File System enables organizations to construct a file namespace that presents a homogeneous, location-transparent namespace to client workstations. This global namespace is secured by federated authentication and a multi-factor constrained elevation authorization model. Organizations are protected when extending the namespace across multiple internal, DMZ and cloud hosted infrastructures. Come to the this presentation to see how AuriStor File System has been successfully deployed by end user organizations to support process migration across infrastructures via life-and-shift; prevent cloud vendor lock-in; and to support open data scientific research initiatives./p>

Jeffrey Altman founded AuriStor to extend into the 21st Century the AFS concepts of a global file system namespace, security first network protocols, and access control for all applications and end users.
