FileCloud Overview

What is FileCloud?

FileCloud is an enterprise file sharing, sync and backup solution which enables users to access, manage and share files and data securely via their web browser, mobile app, mapped virtual device, and more.

FileCloud integrates with Microsoft Office and Outlook, along with other apps like Excel and Okta. Zapier integration serves to further enhance user productivity, allowing users to connect with multiple tools, like Evernote, Trello, Gmail, and Google Drive.

FileCloud supports remote access and data synchronization, enabling users to access their data anytime, anywhere, using any device. FileCloud offers both self-hosting and cloud-based solutions, allowing users to integrate the platform into their IT infrastructure and storage, or host it wherever they like, no installation required.

The platform gives businesses complete control and ownership over their data with security and file sharing technology such as public and private sharing, built-in document preview, and granular folder permissions, plus anti-virus scanning, file encryption, two-factor authentication, ransomware protection, and compliance support for HIPAA, GDPR, and more.

Other FileCloud features include customizable branding, content management, and collaboration tools like custom workflows, notifications, comments and file locking. The platform offers administrator features like user management, file analytics and reports, full audit logs, and role-based access.

On-prem choice for file sharing and remote file access

We have a number of project managers, drafters, engineers, contract administrators, and estimators that need to share large files easily via email links. We prefer to host our own content and keep it under our control, so we used a popular self-hosted product for quite some time. The instability of the product and the politics and marketing of the sponsor company made finding an alternative compelling, as the concept of hosting our own content really worked well for us. After a number of trials of competing products, FileCloud stood out as the best Active Directory integrated file sharing platform available. It's worked out VERY well for the last year, and we renewed for another year. Performance of the VM is great, and with as much storage as we feel like allocating is available at NO additional cost. Adding a user to FileCloud is a matter of adding the AD account to the FileCloud security group, what could be simpler? Outlook integration and the mobile apps work well, and the Windows client allows a drive letter assignment - no muss, no fuss. I needed a little help from support sorting out the SSL certificate, they were SUPER great to work with.

Great Online Storage Solution With Some Downsides

This is great online storage solution (and sharing) with HIPPA compliance function and Drive for windows. We mainly wanted to use Drive for windows to create local drive on our users devices. But Drive for windows has some limitation and slowed down. Hence, we stop using it. But their tech support is great and in addition they meet with us multiple time to see how they can address our needs in future.

Still in the first year of using FileCloud.

We use FileCloud to extend our user's reach into our super computing environment so that they have access to their research from anywhere. It has been only about 6 months since we got it up and running but the overall experience has been pretty good so far. We are still working on transitioning all of our users over.

Pros

All of the content is hosted by us, controlled by us, backed up by us, and secured by us. We don't have to train users on five different platforms, either - it's FileCloud, start to finish.

Cons

Well, you know how PHP likes to throw off goofy error log entries, that aren't really errors? That's kind of annoying.

Overall I'm very happy with the service and I encourage people to use it on a regular basis.

Pros

I setup a lot of software on my OpenMediaVault-based server. I've tried other file hosting applications and they were fine, but hard to setup in a lot of cases. FileCloud was very easy to setup and use from the start. I've had no issues or downtime in my file sharing since I started using FileCloud.

Cons

I don't like that I lost the ability to customize my instance when I paid for a community license. I'm hosting the software on my computer. Why can't I use any of the customization features?

Pros

The online tools make this so much more powerful than what we were using before (DropBox). Loved all the reporting and ability to really tighten all the permissions to a very granular level.

Cons

We ended up having issue when we updated our accounting software to the current version. They assured us that in the future it would be updated but it would take a few months. They gave us a complete and full refund and were super helpful as we had to transition back to our prior service.

This is great online storage solution (and sharing) with HIPPA compliance function and Drive for windows. We mainly wanted to use Drive for windows to create local drive on our users devices. But Drive for windows has some limitation and slowed down. Hence, we stop using it. But their tech support is great and in addition they meet with us multiple time to see how they can address our needs in future.

Pros

Easy to implement
Great support
Can access from many devices and OS
Lots of future
New compliance manager is great
New UI is way better

Cons

FileCloud Drive for windows has limitations.
Quick Edit function is great but I wish was not limited to one file.
