Announcing FileCloud ServerSync – Synchronizes Files and Permissions From Local Windows File Servers With the Cloud
ServerSync Enables Cloud Access for On-Premise Windows File Servers
FileCloud, a cloud-agnostic Enterprise File Sharing and Sync (EFSS) platform, today announced that it is the first enterprise file services platform to integrate branch-office Microsoft Windows file servers with any IaaS cloud. This enhanced product offering, ServerSync, can replicate files and permissions on any local Microsoft Windows file servers and sync with the cloud to enable teams to store, share and access files seamlessly.
“Over 80 percent of businesses still run on-premise Microsoft Windows file servers to store their files,” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO, FileCloud. “There is no easy way for team members to access these files remotely, greatly inhibiting the speed at which business can be conducted. With FileCloud’s ServerSync, customers can access their data locally from the file server and remotely from the cloud.”
Hybrid Cloud Approach Compatible with Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS Cloud Infrastructures
FileCloud ServerSync enables a hybrid cloud approach that uses traditional LAN access when on-premise and cloud access when off-site, while allowing customers to employ their cloud infrastructure of choice—Azure, AWS, etc. Customers can migrate data without disrupting operations and synchronize on-premise file servers to the cloud without losing folder hierarchy or NTFS permissions. ServerSync also consolidates Microsoft Windows file servers across branch offices to the cloud and simplifies adding new branch-office file servers.
To provide remote access and collaboration of files stored on-premise, enterprises employ cumbersome strategies that rely on archaic VPN or EFSS solutions that force migration of files to cloud or require proprietary appliances. FileCloud ServerSync integrates with existing Windows file servers without the need for proprietary appliances or requiring migration of files to the cloud. By providing local access, FileCloud ServerSync removes latency, ensuring the highest performance while providing cloud flexibility, which is critical for collaborating on large files e.g. CAD files.
“FileCloud helps businesses modernize their IT infrastructure and adopt the cloud for digital transformation without disrupting their current operations,” said Venkat Ramasamy, COO, FileCloud. “Customers can leave their files on existing Microsoft Windows file servers while FileCloud synchronizes files and permissions between on-premise and the cloud. Our product simplifies the role of IT administrators by managing all files and permissions and handling the technical complexities of sharing.”
