Best way to work in the cloud. Now using a local SMB file server - almost full

Dear all,

 

A company's marketing department (3 people) are using premiere, photoshop, indesign.. They are working on a Windows server file share that is almost getting full.

 

I'm investigating the possibilities to migrate / work in the cloud. They have a business premium MS365 subscription.

What is the best option for this? Creative cloud? 

Can they use a onedrive sync of a large sharepoint document library?

 

Please advise;

thanks!

Hi @Ent-christophe Officially Adobe does not support working directly from remote locations (cloud services/synced folders/servers, etc). You can search this forum for hundreds of posts regarding issues doing so.

My best recommendation is to look into a DAM (Digital Asset Management System) that can integrate with your Creative Cloud (most do through plugins) and allows seamless workflows using a check out/check in system.

OneDrive and Sharepoint will work if only used for storage. As with any other solution, the users would have to download to local, edit, save then reupload versions to the storage location. Again, working directly out of these - even with a locally synced folder is a recipe for disaster (file corruption).

Hi, yes of course the cloud files would need to be synced to the local computer. Directly from the cloud will not work. That is what I mean. 

Would a Onedrive synced location from Sharepoint not be a valid option? Here the sharepoint files are downloaded locally. Or is Creative cloud better integrated?

Hi @Ent-christophe synching cannot be active while working in those locations. Same issue.

Creative Cloud is not a better option IMO either. All of these are simply storage options not meant for active working spaces.
