Security is the issue of user authentication and select the tool file access, and reliability - is the choice of technology.
Turnkey solutions are usually considerably expensive, especially in large volumes. Ie Yes, cloud solutions provide access control by password, and relatively but not absolutely reliable (service is in fact not responsible for data, even if you pay).
If your volumes of the order of hundreds of gigabytes or several terabytes, the better your system nothing. Do not have to lift a file server, you can do a simple pluggable drives (do not care stick or hard disks), but we strongly recommend the use of not one device but several (RAID 1,5,6,...). Support for RAID and encryption available in all modern major operating systems, so that some perturbations of the mouse you can configure the same mirroring and raise the encryption to access the files required to enter a password.
