“We search for a solution for our team. We have a file server with Active Directory for our projects, with a team of users travelling around. We need the files and folders accessible for team members outside of office, while other people working on the same project can continue to access files and folders from within the office.”Above is the main use case requirement, then he follows with the second requirement:
“We don’t want the work to be solely in Web Interface, nor do we want applications to provide sync after users come back into office.”The second requirement can be translated into:
Please provide real time direct access for both users in the office and users outside office.This usually requires a VPN like solution so remote user can login to the file server through VPN. However, in the cloud era, there is a better and cheaper solution, with more functionality, such as backup, version control and mobile device access, while reducing the cost of setting up a VPN in office.
