The need of a new cloud server solution
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 own problems. Such a system 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 not always guaranteed. 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.
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 public cloud provides mobility and efficiency. The hybrid cloud server solution provides flexibility and scalability as files and folders seamlessly synchronized in between public and private clouds to satisfy employees' workload from the closest location.
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.

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.
Triofox Solution: Security + Mobility
The goal of our hybrid cloud storage solution is 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 global distributed file system namespace in cloud storage inside the user’s account and this can be accessed from a web browser, desktop PC, mobile device, or another file server. This enables easy access for remote users and provides an online backup solution to the hybrid cloud server.
What makes us different:
While many other solutions offer savings and productivity boosts from cloud file sharing, Triofox offers the unique ability to create your own 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, as well as the ability to create a hybrid cloud server environment that preserves drive mapping, file-locking, and familiar permission control user experiences.
