Platform Overview

This is a hybrid business-class online solution that completely eliminates the costs and complexity of purchasing and maintaining traditional onsite file servers, tape backups, FTP and VPN systems. Access files from your PC, Mac or mobile device. You have unprecedented file access control which can be administered from anywhere on the Internet.

Egnyte is the only file-sharing platform that adheres to data gravity – the simple idea that not all files were meant to be “up in the cloud.” Egnyte provides deployment models that solve all enterprise file sharing use cases: cloud-only file sharing, remote access to files stored on-prem, fast local file access while in the office and cross-office collaboration through site-to-site sync of heterogeneous storage devices.

Unlike point solutions, Egnyte’s flexible deployment models solve enterprise issues of file sensitivity, file size, bandwidth constraints and multiple types of users – all while leveraging existing infrastructure, folder structures and permissions.

If you have not seen a cloud file server demo, we encourage you to visit our office for a working demo. We use the same cloud file service we sell and have found the results to be very effective.

We have been using Egnyte for over nine years, before wide-spread cloud adoption was a thing. Egnyte has continued to invest in their platform and in our opinion, it is the strongest cloud sharing service available. When compared to SharePoint, OneDrive, Google Drive, and others, there is no real comparison. A few of our reasons are below.

User adoption:

Egnyte is so easy to learn and pick up that almost anyone in the organization can do it with minimal training. Where training is needed, helpful guides and resources are available and take just minutes, not hours or days, to learn.

Flexibility of access methods:

We can deploy Egnyte in just about any configuration that makes sense – cloud only, hybrid, or local. You can have the benefits of a cloud solution with the speed and security benefits of local storage. No other solution, SharePoint included, can boast this with as much simplicity and value as Egnyte can.

No cumbersome VPN services, no compromise on security. No problem.


You get more than just file sharing. You also get backup, revisioning, and collaboration tools; as well as multi-point integrations with industry leading products such as Microsoft 365.

Secure sharing:

Egnyte allows you to securely share both inside and outside your organization, ensuring compliance and PII remains protected while offering an intuitive way to share and engage your team, clients, and vendors.


Gain contextual search for all things stored in Egnyte allowing you to quickly and deeply understand your data. The engine is turnkey and ready to go from day one. No training data sets, integration work, or complex scripting required to get started. With simple reports, alerts, and triggered workflows, you don’t need a team of engineers to operate it either.


Help drive good compliance practices by limiting and being able to report on who has access to your data, both inside and outside the organization. With full audit logs, access trails, and deep user permissions, layer on Egnyte Protect for the most automated and comprehensive experience.

Egnyte is a power tool, delivering value day after day with an intuitive method of working. As a partner, PremierePC can offer you full support, direct billing, and ongoing assistance with management.

Storage Sync

And Supported Hardware

The Egnyte Cloud File Server is flexible. It can be used with no hardware or deployed on a variety of hardware solutions.

Storage Sync is Egnyte’s hybrid file-sharing and collaboration technology. With Egnyte Storage Sync, files on any local storage device (direct attached, NAS, or SAN) can be synced with Egnyte Cloud, thereby enabling users to store, share, and access files seamlessly across storage systems and the cloud. Your data is encrypted at the storage level on Egnyte cloud servers and while in transit. Storage Sync is currently supported with the VMware, Hyper-V, and NETGEAR platforms.



Storage Sync for VMware is Egnyte’s premier offering in terms of scalability and performance. This solution is intended for shared workspaces that undergo a high frequency of file and folder operations on a large number of files.

Consider this solution if:

  • You are familiar with VMware virtualization technology or have existing VMware infrastructure.
  • You have large-sized teams with over 250 people.

Microsoft Hyper-V

Teams with predominantly Windows operating environments can enjoy a hybrid-cloud solution. This solution is intended for small teams in a remote office with limited IT resources. Business files can be stored either locally inside the virtual machine or can be mounted inside the virtual machine if there is an existing SAN disk. On-premise users can map a network drive (CIFS) from their computers and access the local copy of files stored on the Storage Sync device. Remote users can access the cloud copy of these files.

Consider this solution if:

  • Your company predominantly operates on Microsoft environment and are familiar with Microsoft Virtualization infrastructure.
  • You have remote teams with small number of collaborators (<100).


Netgear ReadyNASNetgear

Storage Sync for NETGEAR is an easy-to-install solution that provides all the benefits of a physical file server without the associated costs and management overhead. Storage Sync combined with Egnyte Cloud File Server is intended for SMB customers who have the following needs:

  • High speed, LAN access speeds to files.
  • Concurrent access across a large number of users in one office location.
  • Remote/mobile employees & collaboration between several offices.

Storage Sync is a software solution that can turn any commodity, Linux-based, off‐the‐shelf NAS device into a fully functional file server.

Consider this solution if:

  • You own a small business with limited (or no) IT staff requiring an off-the-shelf and easy-to-deploy NAS server.
  • You do not have virtual server infrastructure like VMware ESX/ESXi server or Microsoft Hyper-V.
  • You require small NAS servers to be transported to locations with limited or no bandwidth.

Egnyte Turbo

Turbo is the next generation hybrid technology platform from Egnyte. This solution combines the performance and scalability aspects of Storage Sync along with many new and compelling end-user and Administrator features as listed below.

  • Single Drive Letter: End-users can access files on Turbo with Egnyte Connect Desktop App installed on their laptop. This implies that users can access their files stored on Egnyte cloud or on Turbo device through a single drive letter.
  • Global File Locking: With Turbo, Egnyte Connect Desktop App users can ensure that when a file is opened for editing, the file is locked and is not editable by any other user.
  • Automatic Discovery and Location Awareness: Users who travel between different offices can continue to use Desktop App to access files stored in Turbo devices at each location (if they are authorized to access Turbo device at each location).
  • Cloud Management: Turbo devices can be easily monitored and managed in the cloud.


Advanced File System

Includes 200GB / User, Active Directory and SSO Integration, and Role-Based Administration
