Ubuntu and windows share

I'd like to use Ubuntu at work, while still beeing able to access and edit data on a shared windows network drive (bibliography collection of PDF files, current and archived project documents, presentations at events, datasets, ...). I have approx 4 GB of data.

Using the CIFS (Common Internet File System) from microsoft, it's possible to permanently map a windows network drive on a UBUNTU-GNU-LINUX desktop:
Canonical dropped support for Ubuntu One: "the free storage wars aren’t a sustainable place for us to be, particularly with other services now regularly offering 25GB-50GB free storage."

I could try unison
