What about Dropbox?  It is for computers and has an iPhone App as well.

We are using Google Drive in one of our client project.

Its easy to use and user friendly,

Also its integrated with Google Mail (We have migrated our exchange server to Google mail) .

Dropbox doesn't do network drives either. I don't use Google anything in business for ethics reasons.

True (and I probably should have mentioned that). But you can use it as a Network Folder (not on your Server of course), and put the documents there that you need remotely and on mobile devices.

I want to synchronize all documents for backup purposes too and it could be up to 50 gigs sometimes .

For that size of data storage, I use SyncBack Pro (2brightsparks.com). It can handle Sync and Backup with a Server and with computers. I regularly scan through a 40Gb file of documents and sync it to my home office desktop for backup and use. So that will certainly work.

SyncBack Pro does not have a mobile app that I know of.

I figured out how to make them work on shares. I was able to get it to work by creating a local link on the hard drive using the mklink /d c:\shared\foldername \\network share . I used syncplicity and I could add any folder if I went through that link. You can share files and it has a mobile app It worked great.
Thanks for your assistance.
