Fortra’s FileCatalyst is a robust accelerated file transfer solution that supports client/server architecture, enabling the fast transfer of large files. This solution from Fortra is designed specifically to allow the transfer of large files over remote networks experiencing high latency or packet loss.

Fortra’s FileCatalyst solutions employ multiple techniques to yield speedy file transfer results.

As a UDP-based protocol, it makes transferring large data sets much faster, even in high latency or packet loss environments. To cut down on time-consuming compression and decompression processes before and after a file has been transmitted, FileCatalyst compresses the files you send on the fly.

TCP streaming acts as FileCatalyst’s functioning safety net, which allows for file transfer acceleration to occur even when UDP is not possible. Additionally, the solution supports delta transfer algorithms which allows for users to revise files and, instead of sending the entirety of the file, sends just the revision that was made. Once the revision arrives to its destination, the original file is modified.

Fortra’s FileCatalyst

FileCatalyst is an award-winning accelerated file transfer solution, known for achieving file transfer speeds much higher than other file transfer solutions:

  • Maintain scalability
  • Improve efficiency
  • Move large files with no delays

FileCatalyst ensures a constant flow of data, thanks to automatic retransmission in the case of a lost packet of data.

The FileCatalyst suite has the capability to maximise organisational productivity, ease collaboration across border, secure confidential information and simplify the need for heavy-handed IT administration.
