To overcome these challenges, Ichthys Genomics chose FileCatalyst’s flagship solution, FileCatalyst Direct. FileCatalyst Direct is a suite of server and client applications that use FileCatalyst’s patented UDP-based protocol to transfer files at speeds of up to 10Gbps. FileCatalyst TransferAgent was also used to provide a simple two-pane transfer interface.
By using the FileCatalyst SDK, FileCatalyst’s solutions have been integrated with the genetic analysis software used by the research institutes across each region, allowing for accelerated transfer speeds.
FileCatalyst Direct’s client application, FileCatalyst Hotfolder, was also installed, which allows for automation. By placing HotFolders across the various endpoints, files will automatically download or upload content at intervals that can be customized.
