Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -- From InterOp, Las Vegas, Unlimi-Tech Software is pleased to announce the integration of FileCatalyst file transfer technology within Hosting.com’s Cloud and Dedicated Hosting solutions. FileCatalyst is available as a pre-installed software option across the range of Hosting.com’s hosted environments.

Organizations move to cloud-hosted solutions for reasons like scalability, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. But during initial data migration, transfers seem to crawl along more slowly than expected. If file transfer is a recurring task, slow speeds become a growing concern. The problem is not the infrastructure, which is every bit as fast as advertised; the problem is outdated file transfer technology.

Hosting.com’s customer-centric approach led them to develop a portal that allows customers to select and deploy additional services and applications right from the beginning. When the time came to select a fast file transfer solution for inclusion in the customer portal, FileCatalyst was the clear choice. After choosing the FileCatalyst option, Hosting.com customers have accelerated file transfer during the migration phase and beyond.

“Hosting.com partners with select 3rd party software vendors to ensure that we provide not only the best cloud hosting experience, but that it also provides a multitude of tightly integrated applications within our customer portal,” says Matt Ferrari, Director of Platform Engineering with Hosting.com. “We choose only the best of breed for each type of software and so we chose FileCatalyst as the technology for moving large files to and from our cloud service.”

Including FileCatalyst in the Hosting.com Customer Portal means that customers have a cost-effective way of getting started with FileCatalyst technology, no matter the size of their organization or whether FileCatalyst is needed on a per-project or ongoing basis.

Beyond being an exciting project from a technical point of view, the two companies found that they shared the same perspective on customer support:

“Hosting.com is an ideal partner to bring FileCatalyst to the cloud,” says Chris Bailey, CEO of Unlimi-Tech Software. “Unlike many other cloud hosting providers, they build real relationships with their clients and partners—when you need to, you can actually speak to a real human being. This service-oriented approach makes them an exciting company to work with, and gives us confidence that our customers will receive the highest level of service possible.”
