I am looking for a dropbox like file sharing software to use in my company.  We have a couple locations and we would like to share files.  I want to have the file server installed on my server in the office instead of paying somebody and putting everything in their cloud.  Any suggestions?

I have following options:

1. OwnCloud (free, but maybe not easily implemented in existing network?)
2. AeroFS (not free, so actually not really an option)
3. BitTorrent Sync

My favorite is BitTorrent Sync, it just works great on all my machines from Windows to Macs and Linux devices, IOS and Android.

My bad.  Actually, there is one more requirement.  I want to restrict some users to read the files only but not downloading it to make changes.  Is there any?

If you choose the OwnCloud way, then it will give you that feature, sort of: https://owncloud.com/blog/how-to-avoid-oversharing-with-owncloud

The suggestion is very great but it does not do exactly what I want to do.  The only way I can think of is using remote desktop and make the drives inside readable only, so they cannot copy anything over to their desktop.
