Branch Office File Sharing Made Easy!

Mapped network drive is the default file accessing method inside a corporate's network. Files and folders are served directly from corporate file servers. Windows desktop machines with group policy setup and active directory security settings have network drives automatically mapped to file server network shares and be available immediately upon a user's login to a Windows workstation.

For mobile workforce working from branch offices, accessing files and folders may not be as straight forward as those working from corporate head quarters. Site-to-site VPN may need to be used to access files from centralized corporate file servers.

Consolidate branch office file servers into one cloud file server will make file access, collaboration and sharing much easier for your workforce.

Multi-Site Collaboration

Gladinet solutions provides file server network folder synchronization and cloud backup to enhance business continuity and cloud migration.
  • Global Namespace – Branch and main offices share the same folder structure and work on the same set of files without fear of file corruption
  • Cloud Backup – Cloud backup is a special folder synchronization technology which provides snapshot restore and instant cloud access.
  • Enhanced Performance – Once a local folder is attached and starts to contribute files and folder structures to your cloud storage, it speeds up access from the other sites.

Files and folders migration to a cloud file server!

File server folder synchronization is a good way to migrate file server network shared folders to a centralized cloud file server. The Global workspace is established when files and folders from multiple branch offices populate into the global workspace.
