FileCatalyst Teams Up with Cloudian to Add File Transfer Acceleration to Object Storage

Ottawa, ON — FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and world leading accelerated file transfer solutions provider announced that they have partnered with Cloudian to accelerate transfer speeds between Cloudian’s object storage systems, users and applications at remote sites. Cloudian enables cost effective, limitlessly-scalable storage ideal for use cases such as M&E active archive, backup, disaster recovery, and IoT data feeds. With FileCatalyst Direct, Cloudian object storage users are better positioned to provide a faster experience to remote clients.

FileCatalyst Direct is a suite of server and client applications that accelerate point-to-point file transfers at speeds of up to 10Gbps. By installing FileCatalyst Direct locally to each Cloudian system, remote users can transfer client’s files directly to Cloudian without caching files locally. They are immediately uploaded and made available on the Cloudian system. FileCatalyst utilizes a patented UDP-based file transfer technology that overcomes the issues of slow file transfers caused by network impairments such as latency and packet loss.

“Cloudian object storage helps our customers solve their biggest-scale media storage challenges at an unbeatable cost. FileCatalyst is the ideal complement, providing the perfect solution to move large media files to and from Cloudian at phenomenal speed. Together, FileCatalyst and Cloudian let media professionals leverage cost-effective private cloud storage to address their archive storage, data protection, and content distribution needs” says Jon Toor, chief marketing officer of Cloudian.

“We put a lot of effort into building tools that accelerate file transfers to various public clouds,” says Elton Carneiro, Director of Strategic Partners and Cloud Services for FileCatalyst. “By integrating with Cloudian, we are allowing users to use the same tools to accelerate content to private clouds.” This integration is very exciting for both parties and they look forward to working together.
