CentreStack provides value-added services on top of cloud storage services or local storage services. Cloud Storage services include those from OpenStack Swift, Amazon S3 and its compatibles, Google Cloud Storage, HP Cloud Storage and many others. Local Storage Services include file server Storage (Network Share and DFS share), SAN or NAS storage. CentreStack value-added services can be summarized as Backup, Access, Sync and Share, Identity, Control and Collaboration (BASIC), which is also known as EFSS (Enterprise File Sync and Share) solution.

CentreStack is a cluster of web services built on top of the Microsoft Web Platform. It provides the BASIC value-added services that facilitate online storage access for PCs, Macs, File Servers, Web Browsers, and Mobile Devices.

The services can be deployed in flexible combinations to meet different needs. For example, you can deploy it on premise as a private cloud; or you can deploy it off-premise in a data center, managed by your managed service provider (MSP); or you can deploy it in Amazon EC2-like environment as virtual-private deployment.
