Accelerating File Transfers

As file sizes continue to grow, managing and delivering large files is becoming an important consideration for organizations of all sizes. Companies have abandoned the commonly used FTP/TCP protocol as a delivery method in favor of alternative file transfer solutions which provide acceleration, reliability, management, and security.

Companies using TCP-based file transfer protocols to transfer large data sets may experience slow file transfers, or even failed and/or corrupt file transfers. This failure rate can be detrimental to organizations moving large data sets on a regular basis. This wastes valuable time, especially if these transfers take hours across an otherwise healthy network.

This white paper will cover:

  • Common issues organizations encounter when using TCP-based protocols
  • Other common file sharing methods and the issues inherent with each
  • How FileCatalyst solutions help overcome the issues surrounding slow file transfers
  • The advantages of switching to an accelerated file delivery system
