About Workplace Server

Workplace Server is a component of the Workplace service. It makes all your files accessible through Workplace while retaining local, centralized data storage so that your data is also available via your local area network (LAN). The Workplace service keeps all data on your LAN accessible internally and in sync with Workplace.

LAN users with Workplace installed will automatically benefit from Workplace Server's LAN sync and document locking features, resulting in a seamless experience, whether they're in the office or working remotely.

Workplace Server offers the following benefits:

  • Secure, real-time access to specified folders for users outside the LAN without the need for VPN.
  • Secure and simple data replication of your data to dispersed servers without the need for VPN.
  • Maximized sync speed between devices with minimized Internet bandwidth usage with LAN sync.
  • Seamless file locking of supported files. When a file is locked via Workplace, the file is also locked on the server, and vice-versa.
  • Designed and built to work in server environments
  • Centralized management of all Workplace Servers
  • Automated alerts for Workplace Server status and sync errors

IMPORTANT  Projects must be shared with a specific Workplace server before they can be synced to that server. Refer to Manage project, folder, and file team shares.

For requirements, please refer to Workplace Server Requirements.
