File Sharing Service – CloudFiles – Customer Stories

You CAN Share Your Company Files easily and securely with your staff and remote offices without any servers on your premises with Datanet CloudFiles… Here is what our customers have to say about CloudFiles

WineFlow Customer Story

Wine FlowIn 2020, we planned for expansion of our business and we need our IT solutions capable of multiple sites accessing to a central files storage with access controlled. We want our staff to use a simple and effective access solution. All our staff is able to working from home and offices to perform the same data access just like they are in our main office. Dropbox, Onedrive and Google drive all failed to provide what we needed.

Cloudfiles from Datanet has provided us a data access management control with simplicity by using a designated drive letter (under Window 10) pointing to all our data storage. We can use Window File Explorer to access our files. Therefore it is easy and simple to use.

We choose not to use a VPN solution and opt for Cloudfiles because they have an effective access control functions such as file locking, file access versioning and file sharing, version control, access permissions, backup and restore. And it is simple to use and it is quick too.

I will give Datanet ten out of ten for their technical support service.

Network XP Customer Story

Network XPFollowing on from migrating Financial and CRM based applications to the cloud, our customer was scheduled to replace ageing servers for providing simple secure data storage, the costs to provide a new server and relevant software and infrastructure looked expensive.

I looked to Datanet to provide a cost effective solution, Cloudfiles was the chosen product, it’s very easy to use, the workgroups and segregation work well and are easy to setup and manage, with the Datanet Support team helping and giving clear instruction on how to manage users, this was a real benefit, there is also good reporting functionality, I’m sure I will use Cloudfiles for other customers.
