Migrate File Server to S3

Triofox offers business owners and managed service providers a better cloud strategy for on-premises file servers using the AWS cloud computing platform and services. With Triofox, you can instantly set up secure remote access with a network mapped drive letter in Windows Explorer, a mounted storage volume in Mac Finder, or mobile access from iOS and Android devices or web browsers. Triofox can also be set up to synchronize file server shares with Amazon S3 buckets for business continuity, mobile access, and secure file sharing.

Challenges of Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services are widely used. The two most commonly used services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3. Amazon EC2 is relatively easy to use, as creating virtual machines, starting and stopping virtual machines can be done through the aws.amazon.com web portal. However, most other Amazon web services, including Amazon S3, are intended for independent software vendors (ISVs) to create business solutions through an Application Programming Interface (API), rather than for direct use.

Triofox Solution

Triofox provides secure remote access and file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery for on-premises file servers with easy cloud migration to AWS.


Triofox bridges file servers and AWS for secure remote access and file sharing.


Triofox uses Amazon S3 as a central cloud file repository with version control, file change history, and audit tracing to ensure business continuity for on-premises file servers.


Triofox sets up a hybrid deployment between on-premises file servers and S3, which can be seamlessly converted to AWS only later.

Triofox Feature Highlights


Remote access to file shares from a drive letter without requiring a VPN. Mobile applications included!


Minimize storage and bandwidth consumption by automatically synchronizing and caching only the files you need.

Feature Highlights


Local file server and Amazon S3 storage are synchronized to ensure business continuity and easy cloud migration.


Retain NTFS permissions and Active Directory identities when connecting file servers to Amazon S3.


Granular folder permissions that can mirror NTFS permissions or start from scratch.


Hybrid Local File Servers with Amazon S3 Buckets

Local file server and Amazon S3 synchronize with each other for business continuity and easy cloud migration.

Install CentreStack File Server Agent on the file server that will migrate to S3 over time. Supports Windows 2016/2019/2022 (32-bit/64-bit).

Hybrid File Servers


S3/File Servers with Direct Cloud Access

Access Amazon S3 or file server network shares directly with Triofox fronting the storage services with HTTPS.

If you have already migrated local file server data to the AWS data center, Triofox provides a solution for direct file access from remote devices and mobile devices.

File Server as the Cloud

Problems Solved

Triofox's file server integration and enablement solves these problems by installing agent software on your file server, or by mounting your file server network share directly into Triofox if direct access is available. The software intelligently manages local and cloud storage and offers a range of cloud enablement options.

Most importantly, Active Directory security and the NTFS permission model are maintained as if they had never been changed. Drive mapping is also retained, giving end users a familiar drive letter to access files from remote locations. File locking is also maintained when multiple users are working on the same file at the same time.

The end result is that the file server's network shares are synchronized with Amazon S3 buckets and Triofox provides a complete access solution for Windows mapped drives and Mac Finder mounted volumes for iOS and Android.

Secure Access and File Sharing

Attach local file server folders to your Triofox server. Once attached, it is accessible online and allows remote access. At the same time, the original network shares remain accessible via the local area network.

Server in the Cloud

You can also use these features by using an existing Amazon EC2 Virtual Machines file server in VPC as a private cloud.

Global Workspace

Create a global namespace directory structure that unifies different file servers into a single folder structure and enables collaboration between multiple sites. It is a distributed file system in the cloud backed by Amazon S3.

Migrate to AWS S3 Storage

Alternatively, the contents of the file server can be migrated over time to Amazon S3 to form a hybrid environment. In addition to remote access, this enables a background backup process for business continuity.
