Egnyte - The Cloud File Server

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Aug 25, 2020 1:43:44 PM

If you are looking for a true file server in the cloud, then Egnyte is going to be a good solution for you. Unlike other data providers, Egnyte is structured and the data is centralized compared to platforms where the data tends to reside in the users drives and shared links are created into shared drives. Recent changes with Dropbox and G Suite have enabled more centralized data with their team drives. However, when you are looking for something more traditional, much like a local file server, then Egnyte is going to be the right choice for you.
