I am looking for a secure file syncing solution for a Law Firm. We currently use Synology Cloud Station. It works but has MANY quirks and has caused quite a PITA. Microsoft Office 365 OneDrive for Business is horrible, unfortunately, so that is no option.
I am thinking about testing a configuration that will allow the users to bring Shared Folders off-site using Off-line folder syncing. Users will be in areas where no internet connection is available and cellular is not reliable enough. Here is how I envision this working.
1. Windows Server 2012 R2 DirectAccess Server
2. Windows Server 2012 R2 File Sharing Server
3. Windows 8.1 Enterprise Client using DirectAccess connectivity
4. Users will make Shared Folders they need available off-line as needed
I am very interested to know if anyone uses DirectAccess and how that works for them. Also has anyone tried to use Off-line folders for a workgroup of staff that share the same Shared Folders? How has that worked for you?
I am open to any solution that can be secured, can handle large 2GB+ files, and is mostly reliable. Anything with the work "sync" in it will need to be trouble shot now and again, as long as there are clear ways to resolve the issues.
