Existing Solutions and Their Limitations

In the quest for a user-friendly file server setup, non-technical users often encounter barriers that traditional solutions fail to address. These existing solutions, while robust, present a series of limitations that can deter non-profit organizations and small businesses seeking simplicity and efficiency. The complexities of VPNs, the cost and management hurdles of cloud services, and the technical demands of self-hosted options leave much to be desired for those without IT expertise.

VPN Complexity

VPNs, though secure, add a layer of complexity and often require technical knowledge beyond the grasp of non-technical users, making remote access a challenge.

Cloud Service Costs

Cloud-based solutions like Dropbox or OneDrive may simplify file sharing but come with recurring costs and concerns over data sovereignty and privacy.

Self-Hosted Technical Demands

Options such as SharePoint or FileCloud offer customization but demand a level of IT expertise for setup and maintenance, posing a significant barrier.

Many competitors require moving data to the cloud, lacking the flexibility to support existing on-premises infrastructure without significant overhaul.
