I am looking for an eldos product which can mount an http iso locally and make it available as a drive on a windows box. Readonly mount point is ok for me. I will certain files from the ISO, do certain operation and then unmount. I want to be able to do it programatically. Does Eldos has any product which can do it?

CallbackDisk lets you mount any data from any location by letting your code perform actual reads and writes. HTTP part is out of scope of CallbackDisk itself, but your code in callback / event handlers can do the requested operations in the way you prefer. Yes, this requires some coding.

Our SecureBlackbox product has flexible HTTP client component which you can use for HTTP/HTTPS retrieval.

You can combine those two products in a straightforward manner or you can additionally implement a local cache for blocks of the ISO file (which would be very reasonable).

Potentially we can implement all of the above as a custom service (for a fee) but I don't see anything too complicated in the described scheme and you can easily implement it yourself based on the samples included in CallbackDisk.


Sincerely yours
