IABM Member Whitepaper – FileCatalyst – Accelerating File Transfers
Wed 29, 08 2018
As file sizes continue to grow, managing and delivering large files is becoming an important consideration for organizations of all sizes. Companies have abandoned the commonly used FTP/TCP protocol as a delivery method in favor of alternative file transfer solutions which provide acceleration, reliability, management, and security.
Companies seeking file transfer acceleration are not limited to the high-tech sector. Organizations leveraging the benefits of acceleration are found in sectors such as media and entertainment, natural resources, supercomputing, legal, health, government, financial, manufacturing, and more.
Companies using TCP-based file transfer protocols to transfer large data sets may experience slow file transfers, or even failed and/or corrupt file transfers. This failure rate can be detrimental to organizations moving large data sets on a regular basis. This wastes valuable time, especially if these transfers take hours across an otherwise healthy network.
This white paper will address some of the issues organizations encounter when using TCP-based protocols. It will also outline some other common file sharing methods, and the issues inherent with each. It will then outline the FileCatalyst solutions, and how they overcome the issues surrounding slow file transfers.
Finally, this paper will present a number of scenarios that showcase the advantages of switching to an accelerated file delivery system, such as FileCatalyst, that includes reliability, security, automation, and tracking.
