Private File Sharing for MSPs
As an MSP, your customers may look to the cloud as they face difficulties accessing traditional file servers from mobile devices. Cloud migration may also be viewed as a way to avoid
server replacement and management costs. The problem is that the migration to cloud can be time consuming as users are trained to work with the new platform and admins have to
reconfigure access permissions and folder structures. And as data is migrated away from their file servers to third party services like Dropbox, SharePoint and OneDrive, it introduces
a strategic threat to your business since their critical business data is now controlled by a third party.
CentreStack provides a way for you to maintain control by becoming their cloud provider. Simply install the CentreStack package on Amazon EC2 servers and configure it with Amazon S3 storage to
create a multi-tenant, self-hosted file sharing platform in Amazon with your branding. In many cases, you can do this for free with existing Amazon credits that you may not be using.
You can deploy the same in Microsoft Azure data center with Azure Compute instances and Azure Blob Storage. If you are outside of the United States, you can also deploy CentreStack
to any data center you choose.
After the CentreStack server is deployed, you can then install
agents on customer file servers to synchronize existing file shares, users and permissions to the cloud. Users can continue to use the existing shares until the migration is complete. Once the migration
is completed, the file server can be kept as a local gateway, or retired to create a cloud-only file access and collaboration platform. The process is so seamless that users generally require no downtime and minimal, if any training.
