In a matter of days, Canadian Cloud Computing went from receiving the initial request to the delivery of a highly successful solution. The solution included a cloud server and storage for two months from Canadian Cloud Computing as well as FileCatalyst Server and FileCatalyst Workflow software deployed on the Trusted Canadian Cloud. This solution allowed for easy uploads, fast and secure access, and satisfied conference organizers.
FileCatalyst Workflow allowed them to generate and send each participant a customized email that included a link to their file with a security PIN. Clicking on the link opened a web page where the participant could enter the PIN and download their file.
After the download completed, the sender also received an email notification for the successful transmission. The video files were then flagged for automatic deletion six weeks after the contest, and the cloud resources were released.
