File server enablement connects the existing server to the cloud and permits discrete folders from the file server to be logically mapped
Business-class file sync services implement a feature call File Server Enablement. File server enablement connects the existing server to the cloud and permits discrete folders from the file server to be logically mapped to users and team shares using the sync services. With this technology, all the data from the file server is available in real time on users’ mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, and remote laptops and home office PCs. As new content is created on a remote tablet or PC, the data is instantaneously synced back to the server.
