CentreStack 2020 Update Highlights


13 Releases and 4,009 Code Check-ins!

2020 has been a challenging year, to say the least. But despite the health, political and economic challenges, we've seen increased growth from our customers given the overall increasing demand for remote access. 

This article covers the enhancements and new features added during 2020 as we continue to address the increasing interest in work from home use cases that encourage businesses to modernize and mobilize their file servers on-premises.

Product enhancements covered several areas including cloud backup, usability, security, mobile access, client updates, performance & scalability.

SharePoint Integration

The SharePoint Integration received more focus in 2020 as more businesses were forced to accelerate migration plans that often included O365. But these migrations are often forced to leave some data behind for reasons related to application compatibility or compliance and control. We've made several significant enhancements to the CentreStack integration with SharePoint to improve support for these hybrid use cases based on customer feedback.
