Globalscape Wide Area File Services (WAFS)™
Whether your looking to access and share file between local or global offices, WAFS means that employees can work together on files and projects just as if they were in the same room.
WAFS provides secure, real-time data access for multiple remote users. As files are modified, the system instantly mirrors all changes using intelligent byte-level differencing technology.
There is no need for a backup solution in every office, as all locations save their files to the Vault. A visualisation of how Globalscape’s enterprise collaboration software works is shown below:
Collaborate on mission-critical files
With WAFS, you can say goodbye to delayed projects, multiple errors, budget overages, and angry clients caused by slow, cumbersome collaboration.
Minimise data latency
WAFS transparently replicates files to or between servers or desktops on any scale, eliminating 95% of network traffic and boosting performance
Real-time file locking
WAFS prevents files from being changed at the same time by multiple people. Once you’ve saved your file, the changes are saved in the Vault, in real time, and the lock is removed.
Work offline when internet connectivity is limited
If your network goes offline, you can continue to work on files offline by accessing the files on the Agent (your desktop). When the Agent goes back online, it performs an initial synchronization with the Vault.
Works with Autodesk Revit
Users from locations around the world can access and share files over a WAN at LAN speeds. This means faster and more reliable element borrowing and multi-user access to entire worksets.
Continuous back up of data
The vault keeps past versions of the data. If a corrupted file is saved or if the file is deleted, you can quickly get the past version (uncorrupted/non-deleted) from the vault.
