Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., an Emmy® Award winning pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, an accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an integration with Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft Azure is a cloud platform which integrates storage, data, networking, compute, and more. The platform is open, flexible, and available globally, running on a growing network of Microsoft managed datacenters in 13 regions, including China. Azure provides an economic solution, allowing users to scale up or down in order to meet demand.

FileCatalyst has committed to ending slow transfers in the cloud by bringing FileCatalyst Direct, an accelerated, managed file transfer solution, to Microsoft Azure. A software platform solution, FileCatalyst is able to transfer large and growing files at exceptional rates, particularly across unreliable networks. The unique, patent pending UDP-based protocol is also immune to network impairments, such as latency and packet loss, while accelerating transfers, regardless of size or format, ensuring transfers take minutes instead of hours or days. The Azure cloud is used by those seeking convenience, sharability, and working globally; launching FileCatalyst in conjunction helps ensure these ideals are met in less time than deploying without a world leading solution.

“Microsoft is always striving to provide the best possible technology solutions,” said Harpreet Girn, Business Group Lead of Cloud and Enterprise at Microsoft Canada. “Deploying FileCatalyst on Microsoft Azure can provide users with accelerated file transfer, and reliability.”

“Microsoft Azure is one of the best cloud deployments available,” said Unlimi-Tech Vice President of Business Development, Alan Atkinson. “The FileCatalyst platform can easily be deployed within the cloud, and we are excited to be integrating with Azure.”
