Load Balancing FTP Services for High Availability

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sat, Oct 27, 2018 @ 02:48 AM

This post was originally published on July 8, 2012 but was updated on October 27, 2018 

Overview

In this post, I'm going to take you through the steps of setting up JSCAPE MFT Gateway to establish load balancing across two FTP servers. Load balanced FTP servers can help you achieve high availability for mission critical file transfer services. We're going to start by creating a new FTP cluster consisting of two FTP servers. Once that FTP cluster is ready, we'll then make it accessible to clients by creating an FTP reverse proxy service that will forward client requests to that cluster.

Overview

I'm now going to show you how to enable a reverse proxy service on JSCAPE MFT Gateway. By setting up a DMZ-based JSCAPE MFT Gateway to reverse proxy for one or more file transfer servers in your internal network, you can employ DMZ streaming. This will allow you to provide trading partners and other external users access to your sensitive data without placing the data on any DMZ-based server.

How to Setup High Availability File Transfer Servers

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Jun 01, 2018 @ 06:35 PM

Overview

One of the challenges of setting up a high availability environment for transfer servers is in making sure the servers involved have the same configurations. But if you're using JSCAPE MFT Server, there are easy ways to do it. One option is to set up your MFT Server instances to use an external RDBMS as a shared global datastore. The second is to use the Failover module. In this post, we'll focus on the latter. MFT Server's Failover module will enable you to synchronize your servers either automatically or manually with a single click.
