If this solution had a better ability to search, that would be helpful. In addition, if there was an ability to collaborate, that would also be a benefit. At present, the vision control is had because if someone gets out of it, it locks. And, whoever saves last overrides everyone's work.

Try using Synology 1517+ which comes with bundle of software and one of them is SFTP which is secure and run with Linux. This solution address the requirements for FTP, FIle Share, Cloud Sync, etc. A single box can be deployed with multiple functionalities. I have used 1517+ with 5 X 10 TB disks with usable 35 TB (RAID 6) and cost approximately 2500 $.

Thanks for that,

I've looked at Box but it doesn't have auto file locking nor hybrid functionality.

With Sharefile the Enterprise version looks to be way out of our remit, its only for 7 users!

And I don't understand Sharefile's data allowances, they are woefully under provisioned. I think they're missing a 0 at the end :)
