Supporting a geographically dispersed workforce with Terminal Servers

Many organizations expand their operations by adding offices in remote locations. This strategy helps growing teams tap into new markets, operate in local time zones, and accommodate local nuances to provide better, localized service. However, geographic growth can cause logistical complexity, so it’s important to ensure teams stay connected wherever work happens.

Thanks to advances in collaboration technology, employees can work seamlessly from anywhere like never before. To maintain control and provide remote desktop support for a highly distributed workforce, businesses often use terminal servers. The problem with this approach is that accessing large files stored in the cloud can severely impact WAN performance.

Now, Egnyte can provide the fastest possible access speeds for these large files. By enhancing Storage Sync to support multi-user connections on a single terminal server, it’s now possible for many users to access cached content locally. Once users log into their terminal server session, Storage Sync gives them access to their permissioned Egnyte folders at the speed of a file server, with the flexibility of the cloud. Changes sync automatically, ensuring files always stay up to date. This allows IT to maintain visibility and control while remote teams work seamlessly — all without barriers to collaboration.
