The need of File Server Online Storage Backup
For a long time, consumer backup and enterprise backup are two separate groups of backup solutions. Online storage backup has better representation in the consumer market, while enterprise backup usually end up with an on-premise centralized backup appliance or backup server where all the devices on-premise backup to the appliance.
Even though we are seeing more enterprise solutions leverage online storage backup as a way to backup the backup-appliance. However, most of the online backup solutions are dealing with dark-data, meaning the data stored on the online storage side can't be easily put to active-use until it is restored back down to the enterprise backup-appliance. The time to restore is usually quite long.
Triofox in its simplest form is a web-based file access server layered around on-premise file servers. By default, it has HTTPS connectivities to the connected client agents on Windows PC, Mac and remote file servers. This characteristic of the centralized access-server can be easily leveraged for centralized backup server. So Triofox is also a backup server. With integration of enterprise defined online storage account, Triofox can backup connected devices and connected file servers to private cloud storage accounts for business continuity and secure remote access.
Triofox solution can be used by businesses to privately deploy and host a remote access and file sharing solution, providing an access layer (browser, mobile, desktop and file server access) around private cloud storage service and local file server storage, and retaining full control of data and the related access infrastructure.
Triofox can also serve as a centralized backup appliance, backing up connected remote client devices and connected file server network shares to a centrally defined private online storage account.
Triofox is built on top of Microsoft web server. On one hand, it communicates with external client agents via HTTPS protocols. On the other hand, it communicates with internal file servers and active directory services. With all the connectivity to external client devices and internal file servers, it is also served as
a central backup server backing up to private online storage accounts.
