Sharing files should be fairly straight forward. However, no matter whether you have extremely large files to share, a very limited amount of time to wait for changes to documents or whether you simply have confidential information that needs to be delivered safely without the potential for it to fall into the wrong hands, the chances are that your needs will extend far beyond the benefits offered by email or file sharing sites.
There is another reason why file sharing can be tricky – you may well need to ensure that documents are not being edited by multiple people simultaneously. In such instances, you can suddenly find that you have many alternative versions of the same document but no definitive one and that instead of making your job easier, you now have many files to trawl through to source the exact information you need.
For anyone with specific file sharing needs, moving away from an online solution may be best. Instead, by simply using the right storage server, you are likely to find that you can set up very intricate safety parameters and ensure that documents are only accessible by the people that need to see them, no matter where they happen to be. The added benefit of using storage servers to help you share files effectively is that such files are also likely to be a great deal safer in the long run too. The likes of ISCSI storage will allow businesses to easily share files whilst also ensuring that real time backups are constantly made and, in turn, that technological failure and/or human error don’t lead to important data being lost or being allowed into the wrong hands.
No matter why you need to share files, if you have very specific safety needs whether due to access restriction or even simply for ensuring that you can have constant access to shared files, no matter what happens, a solution such as ISCSI storage is likely to be your best bet.
