In the past, companies mainly hosted private file servers on their local data center. They may have a file server in their headquarters that employees access through the traditional Microsoft Network. Remote users need to use a VPN to access the file server, and this process is tedious, slow, and not user friendly.
Thus many companies turned to cloud servers. However, a cloud-only file system has its problems. Such an approach lacks efficiency and doesn't allow the data to be accessed on-premises for other applications or users. The data also becomes distributed among individual users or teams, outside the reach of IT controls.
With storing data in a public cloud with other tenants, security is quite uncertain. Not to mention, there are times when the Internet connection is slow or unexpected events causing a loss of access to essential data in the cloud.
A hybrid Cloud Server is a combination of cloud server and local server. It combines both on-premises and off-premises IT resources. In a Hybrid Cloud Server, data is kept private and secure with the private server while the public cloud provides mobility and efficiency. The hybrid cloud server solution offers flexibility and scalability as files and folders seamlessly synchronized between public and private clouds to satisfy employees' workload from the closest location.
Not only is it cumbersome to use a VPN, but it also is costly to maintain. However, it is entirely secure.
It comes with the problem of security, as well as the issue of performance. However, it has good mobility.
Combines best from both worlds with security and mobility but without their flaws.
Our hybrid cloud server allows you to access cloud server without VPN. Users can access the files through easy and transparent interface from any location, with any device.
While all your data would be backed up to the cloud, the local server in the hybrid solution will make sure that you won’t ever be bogged down by external factors. Together, both layers of public and private cloud help you maximize your performance and efficiency.
Our hybrid cloud server allows you to access file server without VPN. Users can access the server through easy and transparent interface from any location, with any device.
Cloud backup and data protection also come with version control, making it easy to revert to previous versions.
Take advantage of our folder permissions feature that can mirror NTFS permissions or get created natively. Preserve NTFS permissions and Active Directory identities when connecting file servers to the cloud.
We have full support for file locking from the cloud, with a familiar file server locking experience, ensuring the safety of all your files.
Hybrid Cloud Server is a solution that combines the benefits of both worlds- storing files both on-premise and the cloud.
While the master copies of all data files are stored on a (public) cloud, the on-premises hardware client provides the same performance and permission control as a local (private) file server or network attached storage (NAS) device.
Endless scalability is provided through the public cloud aspect (such as Amazon S3), which means as much resources as needed.
The interface itself is easy and transparent to the users. Users can easily access and share through Windows File Explorer or MacOS Finder interface.
A distributed file system syncs data across multiple sites by a single name space which grants global access.
Our hybrid cloud storage solution aims to improve access to file servers for remote users without interrupting or changing the way on-premise users currently access the server.
How it works:
The file server contents are replicated to a cloud storage service where remote users have improved access to the same file server contents. Additionally, the contents between the local server and cloud storage service sync up to each other.
File servers from different locations can contribute folders to a globally distributed file system namespace in cloud storage inside the user's account. Users can access files from a web browser, desktop PC, mobile device, or another file server. The solution enables easy access for remote users and provides an online backup solution to the hybrid cloud server.
While many other solutions offer savings and productivity boosts from cloud file sharing, Triofox provides the unique ability to create your cloud-based server with custom branding while retaining complete control of the storage and servers involved. Triofox’s ability to utilize standard letter-drive mappings for cloud storage simplifies adoption, access, and centralized collaboration.
Triofox is also unique in its deep integration with NTFS and Active Directory and the ability to create a hybrid cloud server environment that preserves drive mapping, file-locking, and familiar permission control user experiences.
"Simple cloud migration - The cloud migration process is simple and tailored to clients’ needs. We can take the time to migrate individual users to the cloud over days or weeks, rather than requiring everything to be done in one night. What kills in a data migration is rushing through it and with [Triofox] we can take our time."
Triofox eliminates the common drawbacks of traditional file server access and cloud file sharing solutions and combines both strengths with the following benefits.
Cloud backup and data protection with version control. On-demand sync minimizes storage and bandwidth consumption.
Full support for file locking from the cloud. Encrypt remote agent caches or revoke remote agent access privileges from a central management console.
An alternative for one or more of the following: VPN, DFS, FTP, Dropbox, Box, SharePoint, ShareFile, Anchor, Egnyte, etc.
Combines NTFS permissions, Active Directory users and drive mappings. Advanced reports and usage audits on file-sharing activity from a centralized management console.
Simplified remote access from iOS/AndroidPC/Mac/Windows Phone/Windows RT mobile devices. From any location, with any device.
Eliminate management costs of servers and VPNs. Avoid the cost of manual files and folders replication or recreation of NTFS permissions.
Seamlessly integrates into current file-based enterprise networks and work-flow environments.
Choose different implementations based on your own needs. Easy process to set up.
