eFileDepot is a hub for sharing data worldwide over the Internet. The terminology for this type of business is “a Storage Service Provider.” eFileDepot lets small business have a list of online leased services that include: FTP, data storage, virtual private network, Web hosting and e-mail.
“We have had this service since 2000,” Dario Desantis, president of eFileDepot, told MacCentral. “It’s a Mac for Mac users. It can be mounted on the desktop like any shared volume in an office. We can arrange any size storage that a client might need and using Timbuktu and Retrospect, we can configure a back up solution for disaster prevention.”
What’s more, it’s cross-platform so companies can exchange files across the Internet. eFileDepot is particularly beneficial to graphics or multimedia related businesses that handle large complex files and need a better way of managing and distributing this data, Desantis said. However, it can benefit “any small business that wants to begin taking advantage of the real opportunities that the Internet is about to bring to us.” For more info, go to the eFileDepot Web site.
