FileCatalyst provides file transfer solutions that enable users to send files of any size or format at full line speed, and up to hundreds of times faster than traditional solutions, while ensuring the secure and reliable delivery of files with sizes into the terabytes. FileCatalyst’s core transport technology is based on the UDP protocol, which provides a mechanism by which data can be transmitted at precise rates. Files can be transferred over the UDP protocol without being impeded
by network impairments such as latency and packet loss, which substantially slow file transfers. UDP does not have any means of recovering from lost packets, meaning that in the past there was no way to take advantage
of the UDP protocol for reliable transfers over a network with impairments. FileCatalyst adds the reliability and rate control missing from UDP without sacrificing its other desirable properties.
- Fast data transfer: send files over the WAN at speeds of up to 10Gbps
- Secure files during transfer: transfer files over a secure SSL channel
- Guaranteed file delivery: each file is verified byte by byte using MD5
- Transfer files dynamically: files can be transferred while still growing
