Combining the Benefits of Cloud File Sync Tools with the Speed of Local Storage
Files are fundamental building blocks for most organizations, particularly large organizations. File services are often handled by local “file servers,” most of which are either Windows-based or network attached storage (NAS) appliances.
Local file servers are fraught with problems: provisioning, configuring, managing and protecting file servers at remote sites is expensive and error prone. But as with many IT services, cloud computing introduces new opportunities for delivering file services.
This whitepaper helps IT organizations manage enterprise file services by:
- Describing recent developments in enterprise file services, and the impact of cloud storage on that landscape
- Proposing a hybrid architecture for enterprise file services that seamlessly integrates the cloud with traditional file server approaches
- Allowing users to store, protect, access and share files using any device.
Learn how you can use cloud file synch tools to manage file services with better performance, security, efficiency and ease of use.
