Data Management for ShareFile

The partnership between Citrix and NetApp is expending to cover the user data mobility use case. Recently, NetApp created a plugging –NRM-CS v1.1– to automate file recovery within Citrix ShareFile on-premise storage solutions.

This new plugin leverages NetApp Snap technologies –Snapshot, SnapVault, and SnapMirror- to instantly recover files previously deleted from the system by users.

Now, ShareFile administrators who manage on-premises data hosted on NetApp storage have a seamless way of restoring lost files and folders. By providing a free integration with Citrix StorageCenter, NetApp improves your data management.
