FileCloud is a highly scalable on-premises Enterprise File Sharing and Sync solution suitable for deployments from 10s of users to millions of users.
A private cloud solution such as FileCloud offers the same features and advantages of public cloud services, but doesn’t have many of the drawbacks of cloud computing services which include issues related to control over critical enterprise and customer data, concerns about security, and issues connected to regulatory compliance for many industries.
FileCloud allows you to run your own private cloud storage and sync solution for your employees, customers and clients allowing complete control of your organizational data.
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.
See a quick video on the FileCloud Architecture basics.
FileCloud can manage and make available two types of 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.
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.
See a quick video on the differences between Managed Storage and Network Shares
|Feature||Managed Storage||Network Shares|
|Connection||HDD, NAS Drive, Network Folder, OpenStack, Amazon S3||Network Folder|
|Read NTFS Permissions||No||Yes|
|Previous Versions Support||Yes||No|
|Recycle Bin Support||Yes||No|
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.
