Do you know any roadmap or plan for centralizing organizational data in a server?

We buyed our first server and we are planning to use Turnkey Fileserver to store files from management offices which are duplicated and organized in different folders. Users will replace old pc's and start to use thin-clients to access their files. Any advice to smooth the migration?

First plan it out:

  • build a file structure, make it look like your organization (different departments, branches,...)
  • think about access and security, who needs/can see what
  • organize your files as you would normally do in a cabinet

Migrate your files.

Test it before going live (this is the crucial part, don't get rid of your old PC's before having thoroughly tested it)
