Microsoft Azure Cloud Strategy

Triofox offers business owners and managed service providers a better cloud strategy for on-premises file servers using the Microsoft Azure 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 Azure Blob Storage for business continuity, mobile access, and secure file sharing.

Challenges of Microsoft Azure

The Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform and services are primarily intended for independent software vendors (ISVs) to develop business solutions and not for direct use.

There are some that are more user-friendly, such as Azure AD and Azure Virtual Machines, but most are intended to be used by ISVs via API.

Triofox Solution

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


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


Triofox uses Microsoft Azure 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 Microsoft Azure, which can be seamlessly converted to Microsoft Azure 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.


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

Feature Highlights


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


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


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


Hybrid Local File Servers with Azure Blob Storage

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

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

Hybrid File Servers


File Servers with Direct Cloud Access

Access Azure Blob 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 Microsoft Azure 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 Azure Blob Storage 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 Azure 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 Azure Blob Storage.

Migrate to Azure Blob Storage

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