Today's workers are familiar with Dropbox, Google Drive, or one of the many file sharing options available on the cloud. Many ask their IT department, why should I have to switch to an on-premises system for work documents? Novell argues there are some reasons to use an on-premises file sharing solution for business documents, and users should evaluate their situation before abandoning internal servers.
