FileCatalyst Direct v3.6 is here
Posted by John Tkaczewski on 18 December 2015 02:25 AM

Ho Ho Ho! Just like Christmas gifts, this new version of FileCatalyst Direct is very exciting. This new upgrade makes web based file sharing a breeze.  Simply login to the FileCatalyst Server, select a file, enter an email address and you are ready to go... And thanks to our TransferAgent technology, Java Applets are no longer required to upload or download files within a web browser.  Need to get files into Azure in a flash? No problem, this new version supports Azure File System. So go ahead and start moving those files fast to the cloud.

Without further ado, here are the feature highlights in this latest version 3.6:

  • Ability to send e-mail Link to a file directly from FileCatalyst Server.
  • Azure external file system (EFS) support for moving files directly into the Azure cloud.
  • Allow server home directories for S3 and Azure to include credentials
  • Increased performance from S3 driver by utilizing caching.
  • Ability to transfer using multi-client using CLI.
  • Directory streaming (unlimited directory size) available in CLI with multi-client.
  • Ability to re-transfer file headers & footers as post-task operation (for media EVS or Avid files).
  • Improved TransferAgent install and discovery.
  • In HotFolder, ability to schedule task execution with more granularity (ie: every 65 seconds).
  • Advanced Configuration settings exposed in Express for site manager.

Posted by John Tkaczewski on 31 July 2015 05:00 PM

In addition to the blazing fast transfer speeds, reliability, and secure data transfer that users of FileCatalyst Direct have come to expect, FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 now also offers:

- Amazon S3 Integration
A new External File System feature allows users direct access to Amazon S3 cloud storage.

- More Dynamic File Support
A Dynamic Files option expands our support for growing files: files can be transferred as they grow, a user can wait until the growth of a file is complete before transferring, or a user can re-transfer deltas that have changed once the transfer is complete.

- Simplified Installation
FileCatalyst 3.5 simplifies the install process for Mac OSX and removes the reliance on 3rd party plugins.  FileCatalyst TransferAgent has also been been enhanced with easier deployment, and navigation features.

- Improved AIX support
FileCatalyst 3.5 can now move your files from your IBM AIX servers to anywhere in the world, including the cloud.

- Improved Central Management
With new REST API, more alarms and a new GWT client, FileCatalyst Central is ready for managing even your most complicated content delivery problems.
