cloud storage
show user profile  STRAT
Hi guys

been asked to look into cloud storage for our company. we have a few homeworkers in the uk, a couple in china and 1 or 2 spread out in europe. we need a fast, efficient and safe central pool we can upload our daily work to and share between us.
Something that'll sync/work effortlessly in the background and autozip at the same time. we're talking a storage each of maybe several gigabytes per day.

basically, something that requires absolutely minimum work and effort on the user's side on a daily bases.

i've seen this, which looks just the ticket.

any one else got any insight or experience in this type of thing?

In my previous job, we used Dropbox automation. It worked well mostly.

Can't really go wrong with DropBox. I've used it extensively across pretty much every freelance job I've had.

My favourite was syncing a 1.8Tb project folder, it downloaded in about 12 minutes. Which was probably more my internet connection than anything else but was still pleasantly surprised.

1. Be wary of vendor lock-in. What if the price goes up? What if the offered functionality changes? What if...
2. Cheap, fast, good. Pick two. You can't have all three.
3. Nothing is 'free'.
4. 'My' cloud solution is better than your cloud solution.

Go with dropbox for the hassle free option.
If you want more control maybe you can look at a synology nas and manage it yourself.

dropbox all the way. Use it with all my clients and it works really well. Pay a tiny amount for the year too so my computer is backed up too.
