Map DriveHQ Cloud Storage as a Network Drive. Completely Replace Your Local File Server!

DriveHQ cloud storage can be mapped as a network drive. You can easily access it using Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. It is NO DOUBT the most straight-forward way of accessing cloud storage, more so than Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and One Drive's folder sync service.

  • For Businesses and Enterprises: Easily migrate file servers to the cloud and receive all the benefits offered by a cloud-based service. Employees don't need to be re-trained; they probably don't even notice any big changes as they will be accessing the same drive letters as before.
  • For System Administrators or IT Staff: Offers many advanced user, group and security management features, along with high-end features like Active Directory Integration, SSO, pre-configuring a list of folders to be mapped automatically and the specific drive letters to use, etc. These features are extremely useful to enterprise customers. Why migrate to an unfamiliar web browser or folder sync based cloud storage system that many employees hate to learn, not to mention such solution is usually not scalable for enterprise use?
  • For Consumers and Individual Users: As easy as an external drive, users don't need to carry an external drive. The cloud drive is accessible from anywhere at any time, not to mention it is more reliable and more functional.
