Emerald Cloud - Document Sharing


What Is Emerald Cloud?

Emerald Cloud as a document sharing platform is a collaboration between ourselves and File Cloud. We provide the data centre infrastructure to give you: 

Flexibility - We provide small businesses with the flexibility to make the most of the time available. Emerald Cloud gives employees the ability to work from any location and for teams to work on documents collaboratively.  Files stored online are easily accessible from anywhere with any computer, smartphone or tablet.

Security - The security of your data is our priority so all files are encrypted and stored in our dedicated Tier 3 Data Centre in Northampton. The data centre has full monitoring, the latest fire protection, and is manned 24/7 with full perimeter security fencing. 

System Integration - You can integrate with existing file servers, such as Microsoft Active Directory to synchronise user accounts and groups; allow remote access to existing Windows File servers preserving NTFS permissions; provide fast access to files for remote branch offices while reducing network latency, and seamlessly find documents by searching through file content even in your existing file shares.

Fast Document sync  - Emerald Cloud has the capability to sync large files efficiently without slowing down productivity.
