FileCatalyst on your Cloud

Your Cloud, Your File Transfer - one low monthly fee

Cloud IconFileCatalyst is completely agnostic. Put the world's fastest file transfer on the server of your choice, with no limitations by operating system or cloud provider. FileCatalyst works on most public clouds including: Amazon, Windows Azure and OpenStack.

But what if your deployment is not on a cloud?

Globe Icon You can deploy FileCatalyst anywhere, including a private server and still take advantage of monthly pricing. Since not every IT project is given a capital budget, our subscription based licensing is available for any scenario.

What if you don't have a server?

Consider our FileCatalyst Hosted Packages.

Client Connectivity Options


HotFolder is a desktop application that may be installed at the client side. With HotFolder, set up one or more “watched” folders, which transfer new or changed files automatically. HotFolder has rich filtering and bandwidth scheduling capabilities, along with a number of other tools to fully control your file transfer.

Unlimited distribution of the HotFolder application is included in the license cost.

The FileCatalyst Express Client is a standalone desktop application for end user initiated (unscheduled) file transfers. This is a good choice for people who: prefer on-request file transfers, are already familiar with standard FTP clients, and prefer to have an installed desktop application.

Unlimited distribution of the Express application is included in the license cost.

Web Applets

Java Web Applets allow you to embed accelerated file transfer into any webpage, resulting in a zero-installation experience for the end-user. Build a new file transfer web portal, or add the applets to an existing one. There are three applets: two-way, upload-only, and download-only.

Unlimited distribution of Java Applets is included in the license cost.


FileCatalyst Mobile App is available for both iPhone/iPad and Android

Mobile app is included with all the packages.


The FileCatalyst SDK is written in Java SE. Use the Client API to build an accelerated file transfer application or component. Use the Server API to build an interface for controlling the server. The Client API also includes a .NET wrapper.

The CLI (Command Line Interface) can be triggered using scripts or via applications built in languages other than Java. If your existing process already uses command-line FTP, upgrade it with accelerated FileCatalyst transfers.

Unlimited distribution of the SDK and CLI is included in the license cost.
