Combine the Advantages of Cloud Storage & the Speed of Local Storage

There are many different Cloud Storage products available today. Some are designed for a single PC and are very simple to use, but they don’t work well for teams of users who need to share files. At the other extreme you get Cloud Storage solutions which are designed, and priced, for large enterprise organisations. If you are in a typical SM business you still need the facilities of Cloud Storage, to provide the flexibility and Disaster Recovery needed to run a business but you don’t want the expense or complexity.

  • Does your Business need a cost effective Cloud Storage solution for the ever growing need for more disk space?
  • Are you put off Cloud Storage by the fear of slow speed?
  • Would you like to be able to share files with colleagues and across your different computing devices (PC, Android, iPad & Mac)?
  • Would you like to be able to quickly and simply email very large files to your customers without clogging up your mail server.
  • How about including Version control for Documents?
  • Don’t forget the need for secure backup
Up to now you would have needed several different products to achieve all of the above. You probably would have also to duplicate some of your files, which then leads to the problem of managing file versions and using more storage than you need.
