Legacy file transfer protocols and tools are no longer effective in the era of big data and cloud computing. Traditional connection-oriented protocols like FTP squander bandwidth (each packet is individually transmitted and acknowledged) and are susceptible to network latency and packet loss. Using FTP, it can take hours or even days to transfer multi-gigabyte files.
FileCatalyst was designed from the ground up with big data and the cloud in mind. The innovative platform leverages a patented connectionless file transfer technology that avoids protocol overhead while ensuring reliable and secure delivery. Immune to latency and packet loss, FileCatalyst’s fast file transfer technology reduces transfer times down to minutes, or even seconds, for the largest of data sets.
Based on a client-server architecture, FileCatalyst supports a variety of client interfaces including Wasabi’s S3 API, desktop user interfaces, browser-based interfaces with REST APIs, a scriptable CLI, and an SDK for integration with third-party applications.
