Server File Storage Solution with Offsite Sync and Access

Here is a pretty common setup: Small businesses have an internal file storage solution, accessible to all internal devices and works great for users in the office. However, you would like users that are not in the office have the same kind of fast access, wherever they are and on any device.

You are looking for some kind of sync solution with a cloud service that doesn’t interrupt the existing local access behavior, while enabling remote access.

You have tried Office 365 with SharePoint. However, it doesn’t fit and you are still left looking for a solution.

You may hear some IT-old-timers still talk about using FTP or WebDav to enable remote access. You know those old technologies may be even harder to use than what you had with Office 365 and SharePoint.

Now looking at the Gladinet solution that truly sync local file server content to cloud storage services seamlessly, without interrupting the local users, while enabling remote access for out-of-office users.

Gladinet Solution

Benefit #1 Continued Local Access

There is no interruption to local users. They are using the same file server as it was before. All the network shares are still the same network shares.

Benefit #2 On-Demand Access To Local Server
