FileCatalyst Partners With Wasabi to Accelerate File Transfers To and From the Cloud

March 27, 2018

Ottawa, ON - March 27, 2018 - FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, has announced that they have integrated their file transfer acceleration solution with Wasabi’s hot cloud storage, providing unprecedented transfer speeds to and from their cloud platform.

Wasabi’s hot storage is affordable and reliable cloud object storage built for any purpose. Wasabi hot storage is easy to understand, easy to order and incredibly cost-effective to scale. Wasabi supports configurable data immutability to protect against accidental deletions, ransomware, and viruses, as well as ensure regulatory compliance.

FileCatalyst Direct, a suite of server and client applications that enables point-to-point accelerated file transfers, integrates directly with Wasabi hot storage, providing line-rate performance that’s perfect for applications such as:

  • Fast, low-cost primary storage for on-premises workloads and application data
  • Cost-effective secondary storage with accelerated transfer speeds for backup and data migration initiatives
  • Affordable and reliable archival storage for compliance and long-term data retention

“As more enterprises embrace the cloud, they are still faced with the challenge of simply migrating their large data sets to the cloud, as well as retrieving that data from the cloud. FileCatalyst is pleased to provide our file transfer acceleration technology to Wasabi users who want to streamline their migration,” said Elton Carneiro, FileCatalyst’s Director of Strategic Partnerships & Cloud Services.

“Legacy file transfer protocols and tools are no longer effective in the era of big data and cloud computing,” said Jim Donovan, Vice President of Products for Wasabi. “FIleCatalyst helps usher in that new era by providing a means of migrating data into the cloud at unprecedented speeds. We are very excited about this new integration, and we are excited to share it with our users looking for fast, secure and reliable transfers for their cloud storage.”
