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.

Posted by Jayden @ Movebot on Aug 3, 2020 2:30:33 PM

Egnyte is a single content platform that is a way to secure and manage all your content across distributed teams, devices and apps. Unlike other cloud storage providers, Egnyte has a centralized data structure, what you would expect from a traditional file server, but in the cloud. Compared to other cloud storage providers that offer an unstructured means (users "own" the data and then have to share it out) Egnyte is simple and great for organizations who like centralized data management.
