Using cloudHQ

Sit back and relax!

Our company cloud system is ENGNYTE which is for us a great solution. Easy to share files. Sync several devices. Grant access. And above all, use a local copy of our cloud on a NAS.

Compared to Dropbox, Egnyte does have some advantages in our situation. In price there will be not so much difference. And once you have more than 2TB stored in the cloud, you do not change quickly anyway.

Dropbox for sure has also some advantages and is more widely used. We get shared folders from many suppliers with marketing information, pictures and so on. Really nice to do this and it works quite easy.

However, it created a problem for us. Having one big dropbox account with a lot of files in one place makes it difficult to store the files in the right place. So I was looking for a solution that could sync a specific dropbox folder with a specific egnyte folder. And then we need to be able to set multiple folder pairs.

You could do this by downloading the whole dropbox account to one pc, setup a sync program like synctoy to sync to egnyte folders. And then EGNYTE has to sync to the cloud again. A bit complicated and it can be a lot of up and downloading data without purpose.

Then I came accross, cloudHQ, the ideal solution to sync folders in the cloud.

You can add several cloud accounts, google drive, one drive, dropbox and also egnyte. And once you create a folder pair you can  keep the folders synced. So if one of our suppliers adds a new picture to their shared dropbox folder, it is synced to our own EGNYTE folder and then our customers that use a shared EGNYTE folder can access the material at once.

And it also works the other way around. Some of our customers work with Dropbox, so they prefer a shared dropbox folder. We can then sync our EGNYTE folder with our dropbox account and share it with customers.

Using cloudHQ saves us a lot of headaches and reduces the communication with customers and suppliers. So we are happy with the use of cloudHQ and can recommend it to you!
