Moving to the cloud in 2020

Cloud file transfer services are becoming more common as organisations and enterprises look to make a move to the cloud. According to IBM’s 2020 cloud trends, hybrid multi-cloud solutions are emerging as the favoured strategy for organisations.

With further trends and advances in technology; 5G, automation, and open-source tools, cloud transfer technologies have a big part to play and need evolve to optimise this experience.

Cloud file transfer

Couchdrop lets you push files to your cloud using it’s Cloud SFTP and MoveBot offerings. Cloud SFTP also offers the ability to utilise FTP, SCP, SMB, NFS, and Rsync. It’s integrations and partnerships with cloud storage providers across the spectrum from the likes of Wasabi, Backblaze to Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, and other standard cloud storage solutions. Great for automation tasks using the above protocols or their API.

The MoveBot solution provides the ability for quick in-flight cloud migration, replication, and backups. Offering you a way to ensure your hybrid multi-cloud solution can be kept up to date and backed up. Additional settings provide a routinely scheduled job, such as a recurring cloud replication task every day, and also the ability to push partial/delta updates to preserve bandwidth and save time. This service is also a neat way to migrate quickly between the likes of GoogleDrive to OneDrive.
