Do More with Azure Storage

You have moved data to Azure Blob Storage and are looking for an easy way to access that data from your mobile devices, such as an Android device. The Windows Azure portal has a simple web-based file manager. However, it does not offer an Azure Blob Storage mobile app for Android. There are also many other Azure Storage Android applications. So what's different about Triofox? With Triofox, you can access Azure Blob Storage files and folders from Android devices and share Azure Storage files and folders as web links. You can integrate your on-premises file servers with Azure Storage and create a hybrid cloud file server to facilitate mobile access to your on-premises file servers.

Challenges of Azure Blob Storage

Azure Storage is primarily for independent software vendors (ISVs) to develop business solutions, not for direct use. It's kind of like a hard drive that's not meant for direct use, but as a building block behind a tool like Windows Explorer or a file-sharing platform like a Windows file server.

Triofox Solution

Triofox uses the Windows Azure API to add secure remote access, file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery to your on-premises file server with automatic migration to Windows Azure Cloud Computing platform. It's not an object metadata manipulation tool, but provides a secure file sharing solution and file server replacement based on Azure Storage.


Triofox bridges file servers and Windows Azure for secure remote access and file sharing.


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


Hybrid deployment between on-premises file servers and Azure Storage can be seamlessly converted to Azure Storage only as a pure cloud file server.

Triofox Feature Highlights


Remote access to file shares from a drive letter without requiring a VPN. Azure Storage Android app included!


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


Triofox adds version control and file protection to the local file server.

Feature Highlights


Local file server and Azure Storage are synchronized to ensure business continuity and easy cloud migration.


Retain NTFS permissions and Active Directory identities when connecting file servers to Windows Azure.


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


Hybrid Local File Servers with Azure Storage

Local file server and Azure Storage synchronize with each other for business continuity and easy cloud migration.

Install CentreStack Cloud File Server Agent on the file server that will automatically migrate to Azure Storage. Supports Windows 2016/2019/2022 (32-bit/64-bit).

Hybrid File Servers


File Servers with Direct Cloud Access

Access Azure Storage 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 Windows Azure data center with Windows Azure Compute, 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.

Network shares from file servers are synced with Azure Storage to provide a secure access solution for mapped Windows drives, volumes mounted in Mac Finder, and Android.

Secure Access and File Sharing

Attach local file server folders to your Triofox server to enable remote access. The original network shares remain accessible over the local area network.

Server in the Cloud

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

Global Workspace

Create a global namespace directory structure that unifies disparate file servers into a single folder structure and enables cross-site collaboration with a distributed cloud file system backed by Azure Storage.

Migrate to Windows Azure Storage

Alternatively, the contents of the file server can be migrated to Azure Storage over time to form a hybrid environment. This allows remote access as well as a background backup process for business continuity.
