Just finished up the Work Folders episode and love it. My question is why use work folders over say VPN from home? What makes it better or worse to use one or the other instead from a remote location?
Work Folders Question
The goal of Work Folder is to take your existing file servers infrastructure and user file synchronize and extend it to any and all devices you might need to access those files. This allows users to have synchronized work data across all devices, including devices that are not within the security boundary of the domain.
The last scenario may happen because of tablets are smartphones that do not have the capability to join the domain or do not need to be joined to domain.
Using a VPN works but requires more configuration and may give access to more than the work data needed.
Others may want to provide a scenario to help us to understand why you may choose to implement work folders!
