Seamless Migration to the Cloud Storage

What would be the best way to migrate local storage to cloud storage?

ipres_ICON_FOLDER_CLOSEDWhat would be the best way to migrate local storage to cloud storage? The answer shall be that you are using it (cloud) as if there is no migration, no interruption, no down time and no wait time.

It shall be as easy as you attach your local storage on-to the cloud and you can start using it from the cloud, regardless whether the whole transfer has finished or not.

With the new Gladinet Cloud, this is a reality. Your familiar local storage can be attached to Gladinet Cloud. It will be immediately available to your other devices, from the web, from a virtual network drive, from your desktop and your file server,  while the background migration is completing.

First, you will need to sign up for a Gladinet Cloud account. Once you are done, you can use the account from your Gladinet Cloud Desktop (Team Edition) and Gladinet Cloud Server.
