Starting at $0.35/GB


This license model is perfect for organizations that do bulk transfer only occasionally or on a per event basis, and where there is a predictable volume of data, or if you require unlimited bandwidth transfers whenever you are moving files. You can budget the costs of the data transfer into your overall project budget, and not continue to pay when the project is complete. In addition, those offering a service that require a model that has a low entry cost and scales with their business will benefit from this model.


  • License never expires
  • Metered – you only pay for data transferred by the GB
  • No bandwidth or concurrent connection limits
  • Access our entire client software suite, with unlimited distribution
  • Use the same license on multiple FileCatalyst Servers
