THE CHALLENGE OF DISTRIBUTED FILES
This created a number of problems. First, data was now distributed and no longer controlled centrally. Second, providing a reasonable backup for these mobile users was next to impossible. When they came on premises, they could take a snapshot of the machine. This created a massive number of backups and a huge storage nightmare.
Trusting all of this corporate data to Dropbox also brought some security concerns. During a routine call for service, ECXSystems Engineers were able to present a real-world solution to this dilemma, that addressed the security issues and solved the storage challenges.
Working with their IT team, ECXSystems Support deployed a Transformer 75 (a Connected Data appliance) which provides an on-site alternative to Dropbox. The Transformer deploys seamlessly with Kukui‘ula Construction’s existing file server and Active directory and removed the dependence on Dropbox. Seamless integration – Better Security – Smaller Backups – Happy Customer!
