Cloudify Remote File Server with CentreStack

CentreStack is a managed file sync and share solution.  It can help a remote file server sync folders to cloud and also maintain same set of permission control with same set of Active Directory users. This video demonstrates how to use server agent to connect remote file server to CentreStack over the Internet without using VPN (virtual private network). The end result is business continuity as the file server content is replicated to the cloud and maintain two-way synchronization. At the same time, the folder permission is maintained with Active Directory user identity. Business users when they are in the local office, they can continue to access the local file server as it was before; and the same business user can access file server now from mobile devices, web browsers and remote PC/Mac without using a VPN. Sometimes, this is also called hybrid cloud with local network performance and cloud productivity combined.

CentreStack Active Directory Integration

CentreStack is a managed sync and share solution. It can be used in a multi-tenant setup to service multiple companies or multiple departments of the same company. The companies almost always have an active directory each. There are two different ways to integrate active directory. The first one is traditional LDAP connection. The second one is via Server Agent to help connect remote active directory. This video demonstrates how to connect Active Directory to CentreStack on a per-tenant basis. The next video in the blog will demonstrate connection Active Directory via Server Agent. (Server Agent is a small piece of software included in CentreStack that can install on remote file servers that are in the active directory). Here is the video for Active Directory connection via LDAP.
