Orange Launches Small Business Storage Service Powered by CTERA

Innovative Solution Combines On-Premises Storage Appliances with Orange's Le Cloud Pro Portal

PARIS and PETAH TIKVAH, Israel, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CTERA Networks, the leader in cloud storage enablement, today announced it was selected by France Telecom-Orange (NYSE:FTE), one of the world's largest telecom providers, to power its new storage service offered to more than 1 million small business subscribers in France alone. The innovative solution, developed by CTERA, allows Orange customers to securely store, share and back up files using a cloud-enabled appliance that is installed locally at the customer premises and managed from Orange's Le Cloud Pro portal without the need for on-site IT support.

"We are seeing growing demand for hybrid local/cloud storage solutions, and wanted to provide our customers with the best choice in storage technology," said Luc Bretones, vice president SMB Market, Orange. "Together with our customers and partners, we built a suite of cloud applications and on-demand services specifically tailored to the needs of SMBs and SOHOs. Thanks to CTERA's advanced technology, the new offering is exceptionally simple to install, and integrates seamlessly with our Livebox Pro router and Le Cloud Pro portal."

Users that subscribe to the service receive a local storage appliance that automatically connects with single sign-on to their existing Le Cloud Pro account. The service provides backup and file sharing at local network speed, as well as remote web-based file access, and mobile collaboration on iOS and Android devices. As a result, users can easily protect their data and access it anywhere, anytime.

"Cloud-enabled storage and backup services represent a major revenue opportunity for service providers," said Herve Bourgeois, vice president, international sales, CTERA. "We are thrilled to be selected by Orange, one of the world's leading telecommunications operators. This initiative brings CTERA to millions of small businesses, and represents a key milestone in our expansion in Europe."

Availability: The product, "Stockage Local", is available online on Orange's "Le Cloud Pro" portal, in France Telecom shops, in Orange's 1016 telesales center, and via licensed Orange resellers.
