logo_aws_png2You own a small business and have several important folders on your desktop. You also have several people working for you that you need to share your desktop folders with. You may also be out of the office from time to time and your team are working from different places.
So you are searching for a desktop folder sharing solution for your small business that allows people to work from different places.  You need a solution that is easier than email files back and forth.  Sounds interesting, read on …
This is a very typical use case that keeps coming up when we talk to Gladinet customers. This  is easily solved by the Gladinet Cloud for Teams.
Gladinet Cloud built on top of Amazon S3. In addition, you can plug-in your existing Amazon S3 account.  Several articles in the past month discussed the first default option. This article will discuss the second option.
So you have heard of Amazon S3 and are already using it but you need a more completed end-to-end solution on top of it that is :
  • easier to use
  • easier to move files and folders back and forth between your local PC and the online cloud storage
  • easier to backup files
  • easier to access
  • easier to sync and share and you prefer to have a desktop client in addition to the web browser access.
