Kolab integrates with Seafile, a cloud file storage system that, among other features, enables Kolab users to share information with external, third parties, and provides synchronization of libraries between clients — laptops, desktops and mobile devices.
Kolab Systems provides an extension for Plesk, allowing Plesk customers to enjoy Seafile. Let’s look at scenarios where Seafile excels!
A Backup Copy in the Cloud
When was the last time you accidentally dropped your phone in the sink / pool / lake / toilet / …? A truck drove over your laptop?
It’s never a good idea to have your entire life stored in just one place, and backups can be cumbersome. Why not synchronize selected content to the cloud? While it protects you against a complete loss, it can also protect you against accidental deletion!
Part Home Office, Part Road Warrior
John works on a laptop when he’s on the road, but at home uses a desktop workstation — one of those with three monitors in a row, a powerful graphics card and plenty of storage.
When he edits documents in one place, he would love to have the same copy automatically synchronize to his other computer. Furthermore, John’s in Sales, and AirDropping a presentation onto the customer’s screen is as smooth as it goes, so he’s got his iPhone hooked up as well. Added benefit: his family pictures are automatically uploaded to his private cloud.
Share with Users, Groups, Anyone
You can easily share libraries, directories or individual files with other Seafile users, create groups for teams or generate download links so you can share larger files with anyone.
