There is a task to transfer some of information from a small office to a remote server (somewhere in the cloud or data center) due to the unwillingness of the management to put another piece of hardware in the office.
BUT they have a keen desire not to work in the terminal (rdp), but to work with files as over a local network. I think I need to rent a piece of hardware somewhere, set up a VPN to it and voila. Or not?

Please share your experience, how and where is the easiest way to do that?


you can also rent a server on which you can also set up a VPN.
dreams. even if you fork out for a couple of thick channels, delays can really ruin everything. + MTU issue, window size auto-matching issue.
however, yes - the question is what kind of files, and how many people are you.

Really, but you need to understand that inside the cloud the speed will be even higher than usual in the local network, and between the cloud and the local network - probably lower, because the speed is limited.
If you have a free budget, you can make a direct connection to cloud.


An online backup storage service that is famous for its high level of privacy. Of course, the cloud has other nice parameters.
What will you like:
From one account, you can create a backup on Windows and Mac computers, Android and iOS gadgets.
Security — the data is protected by 256-bit AES encryption. Access is opened using a key that only the user has and is not stored on servers.
Data deleted from the device remains in the cloud — to save space on a USB flash drive or restore deleted information.
You can share information by e-mail, via Facebook or Twitter.
iDrive Express function: in case of complete data loss, a drive is provided for their prompt recovery.

According to the developers, even the most resourceful attacker will not be able to get close to the data stored in this cloud.
The access key is created when authorization occurs. Only the user knows the password to the client on the desktop: the key is not transferred anywhere.
There is a web version, but for those to whom 100% anonymity is extremely important, this is a less attractive option: you will have to share your password with the service staff.
Interaction with all popular platforms, including laptops, systems and mobile gadgets.

A service for storing and sharing videos, photos, as well as text and audio files. A great option that will ensure security and save space on the hard drive. In addition, I like it because it allows you to quickly and easily create backups, share them with colleagues and friends. Even pop-up ads in the free version are not annoying.
