CentreStack adds secure remote access and file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery to file servers on-premises with easy cloud migration to Microsoft Azure or Amazon S3. With CentreStack file server agent software on the Windows file server, the server file shares can be synchronized with cloud storage services. Once the bi-directional replication is setup, file sharing features such as sharing file as web links, co-editing with files inside web browser and other features can be layered on top of the cloud storage services, thus enabling Windows file server online sharing.

Alternatively, file server content can be migrated over time to cloud storage to form a hybrid environment. In addition to remote access, this enables a background backup process for business continuity.
Create a global name space directory structure unifying different file servers into a single folder structure, enabling mult-site collaboration with a distributed cloud file system backed by cloud Storage.
When you don't need the local Windows file server anymore, you can retire local Windows file server and go cloud-only.
