Setup FTP Server
Setup an FTP Server might seem to be easy as both Windows and Linux servers have FTP feature built-in. However, to configure, manage and secure an FTP server is never easy.

In Active FTP case, the FTP server needs to connect to the client computer for data connection, which is often blocked by firewall.

Offsite Data Backup
You might already have a backup solution in-house. However, in-house backup is inherently less secure and less reliable than VOSI.biz offsite backup. In case of major disasters, such as fire, flood, theft, virus, etc., both source files & backup files may be destroyed as they are in the same location. Offsite backup keeps your backup data in a different location, thus it is more reliable.

It supports SMTP/POP3/IMAP4/webmail and custom domain.
SMTP, POP & IMAP
SMTP is the standard protocol for sending emails; POP & IMAP are the protocols for retrieving emails. Most email client software (incl. Microsoft Outlook & Outlook Express) supports SMTP, POP & IMAP. POP3 is usually used for downloading emails to local; IMAP can keep all emails on server and automatically sync local and remote email boxes. VOSI.biz virtual email server supports all 3 protocols.

WebDAV Drive Mapping
You can map VOSI.biz cloud storage as a network drive, such as Z: drive. No software needs to be installed. It is extremely simple. However, drive mapping is less efficient / reliable than VOSI.biz File Explorer and FTP. If you have a lot of files or very large files, it is recommended using VOSI.biz File Explorer or FTP.
