Is it time to replace your file server? Learn how ShareSync helps to overcome file server limitations

Replace your file servers with ShareSync

Every day, your end users are generating more and more data. And all that data is being stored in a rack of servers somewhere in your office. This sounds handy, but if you’re in charge of that storage rack, you know all about the headaches that come with it:

  • When the server goes down, your coworkers start yelling. This happens when you’re out of the office, fast asleep, and even on vacation. You’re on the hook to keep the thing running 24/7.
  • The sales reps are constantly calling you when they can’t log in from their tablets. Don’t they know that file servers weren’t designed for mobility?
  • Files are constantly getting added and modified on the fly, and every day you’ve got users complaining that their files are getting overwritten.

The stress is giving you grey hair. And no wonder: the business world has moved beyond the limitations of file servers.

That’s why many customers are turning to ShareSync. This business-grade file sync and share service makes collaboration simple, regardless of device. It protects against lost files. And it offers 99.999% uptime.

Perhaps it already sounds like a great replacement for your file server. But it gets even better.

Better reliability with lower costs

You can’t have low-cost file servers. Not when you’re dealing with constant maintenance, equipment and software upgrades. Or when you’re paying for physical space to store your servers. And high uptime? Well, your uptime only goes as far as your equipment and your IT skills.

ShareSync lowers your costs and increases your reliability. You get the same great rate every month, so budgeting is easy. Plus, none of your expensive real estate is allocated to storage space or equipment.

Unlike file servers, ShareSync is scalable and can grow with your business. Which means you can add new user accounts or more storage capacity as you need it, without buying new hardware.

Best of all ShareSync is backed up by a 99.999% uptime SLA This means there will be less than 0.001% downtime per year.

Support for all your users’ mobile devices

When you’ve got users who want to work from anywhere, you need to be able to support all the devices they want to use: tablets, phones, personal laptops, you name it. File servers just aren’t designed to offer this kind of access.

ShareSync is built to support mobile devices. It offers complete syncing and sharing regardless of device. At the same time, you get the comfort of remote device wipe in case users lose their devices. So even when a device is stolen, you can keep company data from getting into the wrong hands.

Easy internal and external collaboration

Your users need to be able to share files and collaborate — both internally and externally. But you’re getting tired of dealing with all the complaints about files being overwritten. File servers don’t give users any control over versioning; they’re just places to store data. And what about sharing files externally? Right now, your users are sending files via email. You’ve got no control over what they’re sending. That’s putting your company at risk.

ShareSync ensures each user is working on the most current version, but makes previous versions easily accessible, just in case. And with ShareSync, you’ll have complete control over internal and external user permissions down to the file level, so your company data stays secure even when shared with external collaborators.

We Answer Your Questions: FAQ

Q: What is the maximum e-mail attachment size?

A: The ETRN.com e-mail servers do not limit the size of individual e-mail attachments. The ETRN.com e-mail servers do impose a 400 MB maximum total message size limit. Individual customers can choose a smaller message size limit. We can also customize the handling of "over-sized" e-mails. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs. A couple of important facts:

1. Attachments are typically encoded in what is called Base64[1]. As a result, the actual length of MIME-compliant Base64-encoded binary data is usually about 137% of the original file size.

2. E-mails often contain both plain text and HTML components. This also increases the overall size of the e-mail.
