Share File Server

Share internal file servers over the Internet with a web browser interface, mobile applications, and easy access from remote devices.

Help the mobile workforce be more productive.

You may have a mobile workforce, such as employees in sales who need to visit customers. The marketing department is creating sales collaterals and marketing materials back in the office and save them to an on-premise file server. The sales team is out there in the field, showing the white paper, solution brief, and data sheets to customers and collecting customer requirements that need to be saved back to the central file server. Your sales team and your marketing team need a file sharing solution centered on your on-premise file server and, at the same time, cover the usage pattern from all over the Internet.

Share files and folders from File Server over the Internet

CentreStack makes it simple to share files and folders internally with team members and external partners, clients and vendors, or mobile workers outside of company premises.

You can share files by uploading them to online cloud storage first and then share it out. You can also share the files directly from your file server over the Internet, without waiting for the upload process to finish.

Employees will continue to use the familiar cloud drive mapping and file locking interface, in addition to using web browsers and mobile applications to access internal file servers. 

Share Windows File Server Online

In general, you have built your company infrastructure around Microsoft Active Directory and Windows file server network shares. You would like to extend the ability to share files from file server within the LAN (Local Area Network) to file sharing over the Internet to laptops and mobile devices.

Previous File Sharing Options and Pain Points

Previous Options and Pain Points

Mobile workers usually take documents on laptops, collect requirements on-site with the customer, and save them to notebooks. When they return to the office, they will sync up with the file server, download new materials or save requirements back to the file server. It is a manual process, and if employees forgot to upload files, vital customer feedback could get lost, and so does the most up-to-date information.

Team members may also use email to pass documents around. Over time, these documents scatter around in the email system but not coming back to the file server, the central repository. Over time, these files will get lost and buried deep in the email inboxes.

Some online storage solutions also allow you to upload files to online storage for sharing purposes. However, the office worker may already be familiar with saving documents to a file server. Employees need to be re-trained to use a different solution. You prefer the sharing solution to leverage your file server, not a new online storage repository.

SHARE FILE SERVER OVER THE INTERNET

The File Sharing Server Benefits!

CentreStack can either install agent software on your file server or directly mount network shares from your file server network share when direct access is available. It intelligently manages local and cloud storage to provide a range of cloud enablement options.

Active Directory security and NTFS permission models are also maintained as if nothing changed.Users get a familiar drive letter to access files from remote locations with distributed file locking to prevent collaboration collisions.

Enhance File Servers

Businesses find themselves having to purchase new file servers every few years. Eliminate these capital expenditures by migrating file shares to the cloud with CentreStack. Users can continue to work on the existing file shares without disruption, and the file server is enhanced with cloud enablement features.

Remote Access and File Sharing

Simplify remote access and file sharing with familiar interfaces on any computer or device. Windows and Mac desktops display natively mapped drives in Explorer and Finder. That same experience is presented on iOS and Android devices like iPads, iPhones, and Pixels or can be viewed from popular web browsers like Chrome and Firefox.

Simplify File Shares Access

Easily collaborate with business partners by providing them with access to a limited set of internal files or folders. Share files with non-AD users while maintaining administrative controls. Simplify multi-site collaboration with automatic version controls and file locking.

Reduce Costs by Replacing VPN

Eliminate the overhead and support tickets commonly associated with VPN file sharing, Always On VPN, or Direct Access. Automatically use existing users and permissions to save setup time and money. Having an always-on mapped drive helps end-user experience too.

Simplify Management

Eliminate the need to manage servers on-premises by retiring them to the cloud. Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant. Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it’s being shared.

Centrally Manage Permissions

For complete control and visibility, granular permissions can be managed from the file server that was their source or natively with CentreStack. If the file server is retired, CentreStack becomes the new permissions master.

Maintain Compliance

Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant. Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it’s being shared. Admins can perform audits of GDPR and HIPAA compliance or keep track of any changes that have been made to individual files.

Increase Productivity

Provide an always-on mapped drive that works anywhere on any device and allows mobile users to access internal file shares or cloud file servers easily. Web browser based file access and mobile applications on iOS and Android devices further enhance mobility and productivity.

Enhance Data Security

Data protection leverages military-grade encryption to secure connections and to protect data at rest. Automatically use existing users and permissions to save setup time and money.

On-Demand Synchronization

For the remotely mapped drive, on-demand access and synchronization are there by default to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption. At the same time, cache encryption provides end-point protection.

Multi-tenant, white Labeled Solution

CentreStack provides a white-labeled platform that makes it easy for MSP partners to build a private cloud file server solution based on infrastructure from Amazon, Azure, or Google Cloud.

A Private Cloud Alternative

For data privacy, security, and control, CentreStack provides a better alternative to Dropbox and SharePoint using any private cloud or by mobilizing existing on-premise file servers with existing IT infrastructure.
