Updates for GoAnywhere Include Clustering, Disk Quotas, and More

In response to customer requests, especially from larger organizations, Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] has released new enhancements such as clustering and disk quotas for GoAnywhere Director and GoAnywhere Services.  These updates to the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer suite provide even more robust administrative control, and add automatic failover protection in the event of a server failure.

GoAnywhere Director 4.5.0 adds clustering

The new release of GoAnywhere Director 4.5.0 got a big boost when developers added clustering, a feature they added to GoAnywhere Services earlier this year.  Clustering, also know as "active-active" high availability, means that multiple installations of GoAnywhere Director can be in operation simultaneously, communicating with each other at all times.

GoAnywhere Director Clustering for High Availability

There are several advantages to clustering.  It provides assurance for users and trading partners that if something were to go wrong with one of the servers, the additional installations would automatically take over so availability would not be affected.  It also allows for load balancing, which is especially helpful for organizations with high volumes of file transfers.  Finally, it makes it easy for organizations to manage growth because they can easily incorporate additional servers to their managed file transfer environment.

GoAnywhere Services 3.3.0 adds disk quotas, bandwidth throttling

GoAnywhere Services 3.3.0 offers administrators even greater control over how users interact with their secure FTP servers.

One key enhancement is the addition of disk quotas, which allows admins to determine how much storage space to give to each trading partner and user to better manage storage device resources.

Bandwidth throttling, also new to GoAnywhere Services 3.3.0, lets administrators put limits on the amount of network resources a user can consume when transferring files.  With this feature, controls can be enforced on file uploads, downloads and even on which days or times of day are available to specific users.

With more than 50 updates in this round of enhancements, GoAnywhere continues to respond to the needs of its ever-growing consumer base.  GoAnywhere customers will be notified within their product screens that an update is available, and those who are not yet customers can contact us to get a free demo, or can download a fully-functional free trial.
