Centralized File server solution in Microsoft

Last Modified: 2014-08-11
Hi Experts,

I have a client that is looking a  solution that allow the centralization of file servers. This company has a headquarter in the US and multiple satellite offices around Latin America, where is branch or satellite office, has its own Windows File server.

I've been thinking on DFS, but I need to know, if you can provide me with high level steps to integrate multiple file server into a centralized file server solution.

What type of DFS infrastructure deployment do you recommend?

Any DFS free planning tool available to download?

Any blogs, links, that shows step-by-step how to architect, design and deploy DFS to centralize Windows File servers and shares?

Your feedback is really appreciated
