FileCloud is a highly scalable Cloud Storage and Sync solution suitable for deployments from 10s of users to millions of users.
Understanding the FileCloud Architecture
FileCloud software is typically installed on a server (Linux or Windows). There is an admin portal to configure and manage the system.
Once configured, users can access the FileCloud installation using the web browser, mobile apps or even keep their desktop folders in sync using the desktop sync clients.
FileCloud can manage and make available two types of storage:
- Managed Storage
- Managed File Storage is the fully managed storage that is maintained by FileCloud. Users get storage quotas and can access, share, sync all files in the managed storage. This is available in the "My Files" section.
- Network Shares
- Admins can optionally make available existing organizational folder shares available via FileCloud. Such shares can be access via web browser or mobile apps for instant remote access whereever you are. This is available in the "Network Shares" section.
For small deployments, you can use FileCloud with Local Storage configuration. For larger deployments, you would want to use redundant object storage systems like open stack or Amazon S3.
