FileCatalyst Enables Accelerated File Transfer in the Cloud via Amazon Web Services Marketplace

Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the world’s leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce the availability of the FileCatalyst Direct accelerated and managed file transfer solution on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

Serving hundreds of thousands of customers across 190 countries, the AWS Marketplace delivers a set of services that together form a reliable, scalable and inexpensive computing platform in the cloud. Using AWS, companies can quickly launch the IT solutions they require, on a pay-as-you-go basis rather than with significant capital investment. Furthermore, AWS’ economies of scale and efficiency improvement allow for continually lower prices as well for end users.


Joining the many other valuable IT solutions, FileCatalyst Direct brings its unique file transfer acceleration technology to the AWS Marketplace to eliminate the presence of slow file transfers to the cloud. FileCatalyst Direct is an enterprise solution used across a variety of industries to accelerate the data transfer rates of large format file transfers, transfers across large geographical distances, file transfers over poor networks conditions, and countless other scenarios.

As FileCatalyst’s flagship file transfer solution, FileCatalyst Direct enables point to point accelerated file transfers at blazing speeds of up to 10 Gbps. FileCatalyst Direct utilizes the FileCatalyst UDP-based file transfer technology, immune to packet loss and latency, to eliminate file transfer bottlenecks and quickly delivery files of any size or format between cities, countries, and even continents. Used across a variety of industries including media and entertainment, oil and gas, healthcare, enterprise, government and education, FileCatalyst Direct is a flexible and scalable solution.

“The AWS Marketplace is a great solution for businesses looking to deploy enterprise-level solutions without committing to large infrastructure investments,” says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech. “FileCatalyst Direct is easily deployed on the cloud and allows users to have quick and easy access to accelerated and managed file transfer as a pay as you go service.”

FileCatalyst will be demonstrating its accelerated and managed file transfer solutions at the upcoming IBC2013 Exhibition at the RAI Amsterdam taking place from September 13 to 17 at stand 7.H40.
