How to setup Office Online Server with Citrix ShareFile StorageZone Controller & NetScaler

Did you know you can get Office 365 document previewing capability in Citrix ShareFile with on premise files located on local storage zones in your datacenter? And it can be done in a secure and optimum way using Citrix NetScaler? You need to run a Microsoft Office Web Apps (OWA) server on premises for this integration to work. This product was recently renamed Microsoft Office Online Server (OOS) as of May 2016.

Office Online Server is basically just a farm of document rendering servers you can deploy that can handle all the document previewing requests from your ShareFile StorageZone Controllers. You will not be able to edit documents like you can with full blown Office 365 with files saved on Citrix managed cloud storage however. Office Online servers can do editing by utilizing the same user license as Office 365 but ShareFile does not have the capability to use it right now. Fingers crossed it will eventually. 🙂 If you’re using ShareFile with local storage, I highly recommend setting up Office Online Server for several reasons.

Why do you need Office Online Server with ShareFile?
