Azure Blob Mobile Device Access

Mobilize your workforce with azure blob based cloud file server, with mobile device file access, web browser file access, secure file sharing and team file sharing.

Unleash the Power of Windows Azure

Windows azure blob storage (azure blob) is a massively scalable object storage for unstructured data from the Microsoft Windows azure cloud computing platform. Unleash the power of azure blob as an enterprise cloud file server with desktop drive remote access, secure file sharing over web browser, and accompanied by mobile applications on iOS and Android devices.

Simplify Mobile Device File Access to Azure Blob

files and folders in azure data center is more efficient for remote access

Every worker is a mobile worker. Every business that are ready for employees to work-from-home has implemented work-from-home policy in 2020. As employees are more distributed from different remote locations, a centralized cloud file server makes sense because cloud storage services such as azure blob are from data centers that are so close to the Internet backbone and they enjoy very high bandwidth and throughput, in addition to fault tolerance and business continuity built into data centers.

For mobile workers, it would be nice for files and folders to follow workers (sync into their devices) on their mobile phones and laptops so they're readily available when needed. Users therefore have a tendency to turn to Dropbox and other 3rd party cloud storage services since they usually work this way.

Azure blob can be turned into a mobile file access and secure file sharing solution since the underlying storage service is reliable and redundant. Here is how it works.

Benefits of an azure blob based cloud file server solution

Simple & Fast
Files are cached locally so access feels instant without the cumbersome setup of remote desktops or VPN file sharing. Users get local performance when working remotely.
Seamless Interaction
Legacy applications may continue to use the original file shares which remain unchanged even as CentreStack provides remote access to the same file shares from any device.
Good Usability
Minimize user training with a mapped drive that works the same on-premises or remotely. Provide a seamless local experience for users across multiple device factors.
Reduce Data Sprawl
Data stays on centralized cloud file servers. Remote access is governed by existing permissions. File editing and modification always save back to the file's original location.
Enforce Permissions
Combines NTFS permissions, Active Directory users and drive mappings with mobile access from any device.
Maintain Compliance
Inherits file server compliance and allows admins to run HIPAA or GDPR compliance checks and generate reports demonstrating compliance for file access and collaboration.
