1. Where does the “WORLD” server reside?

The “WORLD” server acts in many ways like traditional cloud storage. GeoFolder chooses the best server location for files stored in “WORLD” based on a combination of factors such as speed, availability, and load balancing. The “WORLD” storage option does NOT conform to data residency rules, as the files can be stored anywhere. However, it still has the military grade encryption, security and performance of the rest of GeoFolder. The “WORLD” option exists for 2 reasons: 1) to provide a “Home” option that allows desktop syncing for users who are not in one of the current storage locations GeoFolder offers; and 2) to provide a best practice folder to store files you intend to publish to the web, which by definition is worldwide.
