Seafile is a software system which is used to share files between multiple stakeholders. This package is ideal for enterprise-level organisations, as sharing can take place between different devices and all data will be encrypted. Cloud-based execution is another main feature, perfectly capable of backing up important information in the event of a server crash or an infrastructure problem.

Main Features and Applications

Seafile is highly scalable and this modular nature is a massive advantage to growing firms. Any upgrades can be carried out by running a simple script, saving excess downtime. A small memory footprint is the result of the use of the 'C' programming language. All files can be organized into separate libraries. This can help to clean up a current CMS system. This information can be synchronized across multiple devices (computers, tablets and smartphones), so it is easy to keep stakeholders informed.

Other Benefits and Tools

Seafile offers a local cloud hosting system (the S: drive), so in-house data storage is no longer a concern. When required, files can also be stored directly on the Seafile server. Centralized permission control software provides a robust firewall, always an important concern from a security point of view. The community edition is absolutely free.
