Kilpatrick IT Solutions, a desktop-as-a-service operation with about 350 users and 75 servers, uses CentreStack for their file sharing.
Kilpatrick IT Solution’s (KITS) clients needed a way to move their files between cloud
desktop and local equipment such as their laptops and mobile devices. They were
emailing files to themselves in order to move files from their cloud desktop to their
“We also had an internal solution that worked quite poorly. Unfortunately, Office 365 &
OneDrive do not actually work with Microsoft remote desktop services, so we weren’t
able to use that either, even though all our users have Office 365,” said Kevin Kilpatrick,
President of Kilpatrick IT Solutions.
KITS now uses CentreStack for their file sharing purposes. Users are able to access
their files and folders directly without the need for external storage. They can easily
access from any device as well as choose what files to sync and what devices to sync
those files to.
In addition to easy interconnectivity between client devices, the ability to share with
third parties has made life a lot easier.
“Clients can choose folders or files to share with third parties. This eliminates the
use of outside sources and unauthorized file storage,” said Kevin.
CenterStack also seamlessly integrates with Active Directory, which is what KITS
uses to manage all of their user access and permissions. “CentreStack can talk
directly toActive Directory, so we don’t have to configure each user to CentreStack.
Once we have the files and folders provisioned in CentreStack to the client on their
server, they just access it from the same URL they always used,” said Kevin.
Bottom line is our environment is pretty complex and not
your standard environment. Any time we run into an issue or
configuration question, and if we need to talk directly to
development, they are just all over it. We can talk to the
people who can directly fix the issues on the fly. My
engineers love those guys.
