large file transfer software

Transferring large file sizes between people, systems or into and out of the cloud is becoming a business necessity in many data intensive industries. The size of files is continuing to grow along with improved imaging resolution and capture technology, and businesses are struggling to find a large file transfer option that scales to their business needs with security, speed and reliability. Most cloud-based transfer services have file size limits and are often built on slow and unreliable FTP-based infrastructures. For businesses that need to move more of their large files around the world, a reliable large file transfer software solution is a must.

Signiant has accelerated large file transfer software solutions for companies of every size. Industries like the entertainment and broadcasting industry are seeing their large files continuously move efficiently even as file sizes grow and workflows become more complex. Unlike FTP, your teams will get their large files fast and without disruption using Signiant’s scalable large file transfer software. Read more about large file transfer software and how Signiant is developing solutions to the growing needs of data intensive industries.

How Much Bigger is 8K?

As image resolution increases from 2K to 4K to 8K, each jump in pixel rate actually squares incrementally. That means that while 4K = 8 megapixels, 8K = 32 megapixels. And this also translates to exponentially bigger video files.

Transitioning from FTP: Why today’s B2B solutions are SaaS

There was nothing “user friendly” about the early Internet. By today’s standards — where most people abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load — the early Internet moved at a glacial pace. And, it was so technically esoteric, few people aside from computer experts and scientists understood how to use it. FTP, the Internet’s basic protocol for transferring files between systems, was invented in 1971 with its base specifications standardized during the 1980s. Even though FTP is still used today, its speed and user experience betray its legacy protocol status.
