Distributed File System (DFS) Solutions
For environments that share files between facilities, or companies that have extensive file sharing and storage needs, Distributed File System (DFS), a function that comes standard with Windows server, could be an excellent (and free) use case.
DFS allows files and storage to be replicated in a real-time basis between servers or facilities. This in turn means users at any facility, when they open a file, will be opening the file at the facility closest to them, meaning a better overall user experience, as the files open and save significantly faster than opening them over a remote network location (regardless the connection speed).
