In today's digital-first environment, businesses face the daunting task of managing and accessing vast amounts of data across multiple locations. The challenge intensifies with the need to ensure data security, accessibility, and collaboration without the complexities and limitations of traditional file servers and VPN setups.

Data Accessibility

Ensuring seamless access to files across various locations while maintaining speed and reliability for large file types remains a significant challenge.

Security Concerns

Businesses struggle to balance the need for remote access with maintaining high levels of data security and privacy, often compromised by traditional VPNs.

Collaboration Efficiency

Facilitating efficient collaboration on large files among team members in different locations is hindered by data sprawl and synchronization issues.

Cost and Complexity

The high costs and operational complexities associated with managing VPNs, server replacements, and ensuring data redundancy are major concerns.

Addressing these challenges necessitates a contemporary solution that seamlessly integrates on-premises and cloud storage, ensuring no compromise on performance or security.

Existing Solutions and Their Limitations

In the quest for an optimal online file server solution, businesses often encounter roadblocks with existing market offerings. Traditional and popular cloud services, while providing basic file storage and sharing capabilities, fall short in addressing the nuanced needs of modern enterprises. These limitations not only hinder operational efficiency but also pose challenges in data management, accessibility, and security, compelling businesses to seek more tailored solutions.

Large File Handling

Services like SharePoint, OneDrive, and Dropbox struggle with efficient management of large files, such as AutoCAD designs, leading to synchronization issues and poor performance, especially over VPN connections.

Hybrid Environment Support

Competitors often lack a seamless hybrid setup that integrates on-premises file servers with cloud benefits, forcing businesses into a complete cloud migration or to maintain costly on-premises setups.

Data Privacy and Security

Existing solutions may not offer the level of data privacy and security required by businesses, with forced data migration to proprietary clouds and inadequate support for server-client architectures.

Scalability and Flexibility

Solutions such as Ignite and Dropbox present challenges in scalability and flexibility, with high costs, restrictive licensing models, and complex technical configurations that do not align with customer needs.

File locking is a vital feature for online file access and team collaboration to avoid conflicts. End users need to control global concurrent online file access by using file locking to maintain consistency.

Permission Control

Dropbox and Google Drive don't have the same level of centralized control as a file server. You might miss the NTFS permissions and the ability to know where your data is, who has access to it and what they're doing with it.
