Hi there,

We all login to an Terminal Server 2008 in a cloud enviroment.
In our organization we have one Mac user and he wants to work with offline files which are on the terminal server.

What is the best way to do this?

The easiest option is something like dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/

Are there other options. Like something syncing via ftp or someother software?

Is it not that with dorpbox you have to add the files you want to have offline each time to your dropbox folder or can you add a complete folder and all of this files will be synced?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The Terminal Server is not in the same office as the Mac. It's in a CLoud enviroment so I cannot map directly to it.
