YCD Shoebox Server

YCD Shoebox - All your files. In your control.

Historically, there's generally been a choice for the small business. Either splash serious cash on an office-based server, or compromise on functionality, backups and security levels with some file sharing software such as Dropbox, iCloud or Sync. A traditional server is often too expensive for a tiny business to afford - yet the file sharing solutions offer comparatively little flexibility along with a not-insignificant subscription cost for any business-sized volumes of data.

The solution that ticks the boxes has arrived in the form of what we like to call the YCD Shoebox. A small shoebox-sized device that connects to your office or home-based office network and offers to tick all of your organisational requirements, automates hourly off-site backups, allows you remote access while you're out with clients and, most importantly has state-of-the-art security measures to protect your data.

The flexibility of this system allows any, all or none of the following - plus much more, besides:

  • Direct, fast access to files across your local network
  • Remote access to files via a 'Dropbox-style' app.
  • 3 levels of file security: General users, Team leaders, Owner/managers
  • Data encryption - Your data remains protected should your Shoebox device be stolen.
  • 2-Step authentication - Keeps hackers out, even if they know your username and password!
  • Mirrored internal storage - if an internal storage hard disk fails, there's another one there to keep you running while we fix it.
  • Automated hourly off-site backups (small subscription applies)
  • Roaming profiles - Any user can log into any computer and see the same files.
  • Contact us TODAY for more information about how a YCD Shoebox can improve your productivity.

    Just give us a call on 0115 8240825 for more information.
