Software needed private cloud with file access

Posted on 2011-05-11

I work at a school and would like staff and students to have the ability to access thier home directorys over the web without the bulk of VPN services. I have looked into alot of the web-basted cloud software but the users would have to login to the same website at school to access the documents uploaded or created.

The only software I have seen is made by a company by stone-ware called webnetwork which is close to $13k. There has to be another software to provide this access with a smaller pricetag.

Do you guys know of anything?

Ohh it would need LDAP access and File server access

    do you need remote and easy file access to the school files, or cloud based file hosting? Are you willing to move over to the cloud the zillions of documents that probably are on your file server today?

    Accepted Solution

    If you just need file access I recommend it is compatible with LDAP and can mount most kinds of local file systems. All you need is an additional webserver, or simply run it on your schools webserver.
