Should SharePoint
Replace File Servers?

Make your file servers great again by seamlessly enable file servers with SharePoint-like features. Maintain privacy and control without sacrificing usability and performance.

Replace your file server with SharePoint?

With so many businesses migrating to Office 365, using SharePoint for file sharing and collaboration may seem like a good fit. However, there are many challenges for example, you cannot view more than 5000 items on a page. SharePoint is also a very complex system for ongoing maintenance.

VPN and FTP are outdated.
SharePoint competes with your file server for your data

SharePoint is yet another file service that is competing with your existing Windows file servers. Business adopting SharePoint usually can not replace Windows file servers completely for various reasons. Thus SharePoint service and Windows file servers co-exists in many businesses, creating data split among different silos.

Historically, SharePoint administrators struggle with user adoption in their businesses. SharePoint Intranets are clunky wit static pages and a lot of time and money is spent on user interface customizations and branding.

Another common complaint is monitoring as too much irrelevant data is dumped on SharePoint sites.

Microsoft also offers no endpoint backup and restores for data stored in SharePoint online. Microsoft only maintains a 14-day site backup for disaster recovery.

Do you also have these concerns with SharePoint?

“Does SharePoint have a desktop client with a drive mapper?”

“Does SharePoint work with QuickBook or my line-of-business app?”

“Where is my data, on file servers or on the SharePoint?”

Triofox eliminates the common drawbacks of remote file server access and cloud file sharing solutions to provide the best of both worlds: privacy, security, and control of legacy file servers, and combine these with the efficiency and productivity gains of cloud file sharing.

Triofox Advantages


Triofox helps you address your concern on data ownership, data security and data privacy . Triofox provides a way for you to maintain control by leveraging your existing file servers as data repository and your existing Active Directories as identity service provider for the enterprise file sharing solution that is similar to Dropbox.

After the Triofox server is deployed, employees can use web browsers, mobile applications, and their PCs and Macs to access existing file shares. On PCs, the familiar locally mapped drive interface and file locking behavior are preserved. The process is seamless so that users generally require no downtime and minimal, if any, training.

How it works

Triofox server can be installed and deployed on-premise as a private enterprise file sharing server. The private enterprise file sharing service can integrate with Active Directory user identities and integrate with existing file server shares. All users, from internal and remote employees to external clients and partners, can share files and folders based on the current file server content and follow certain predefined security rules and permissions.

In addition to the existing features such as a locally mapped drive, on-demand synchronization, and file locking, businesses will also gain the following modern file sharing features:

Active Directory Integration

Automatically use existing identities and home shares from Active Directory. Existing NTFS permissions on file and folders are checked natively by the Windows Operating System.
Amazon, Azure, OpenStack

Create a private sync and share solution based on object storage like OpenStackSwift, any S3 compatible, Microsoft Azure and file server network shares.
Folder Permission

Granular folder permissions that can mirror NTFS permissions or get created natively. Define different permissions for folders at different levels of the directory structure.
Large File Transfer

Use Outlook integration to transfer large files as web links via email.
Co-Editing

Triofox integrates with Office 365 for web-based co-editing and co-authoring.
Mobile Access

Simplify remote access to file servers from mobile devices, PCs, Macs and browsers.
