How a company can frictionlessly send or receive large files and folders using almost any storage with the Enterprise File Fabric

Many creatives use a variety of services such as WeSendIt, WeTransfer etc to send large files. This is something that is easy to setup with the File Fabric and the best bit is that your company can be in charge of the storage used including how large the file sizes can be, and everything will be audited and logged for data compliance and governance purposes and scanned for PHI/PII information.

Firstly choose from your existing company storage  a solution that you wish to use to  store the files on. This is the storage that will be used to send or receive files from someone. For this example we will use Amazon S3, which can accommodate extremely large files, but you could use Azure Blob storage or even cheaper storage, such as Google Nearline. Additionally a company could also set this to work against their SMB file shares, either on-premises, or SMB in the cloud, such as Azure Files or Amazon FSx.

Once you have your storage added to the File Fabric we are going to use the File Fabric’s ‘Drop Folder’ feature to both send large files and folder sets to end users as well as provide a link to end users so they can share large files sets.
