File Synchronization

File synchronization is a process that exchanges files between two hosts, or nodes, using a mode that defines the rules for synchronization. Synchronization modes include mirror, synchronize, backup and contribute.

JSCAPE MFT Server supports file synchronization using all major file transfer protocols including FTP/S, SFTP, AFTP and HTTP/S, cloud protocols such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob and Google Drive, and a lightweight Agent protocol that may be freely used by nodes that do not have a file transfer service installed and/or that have firewall policies preventing inbound connections.

Utilizing a hub and spoke network topology JSCAPE MFT Server is able to synchronize files from spoke to hub, hub to spoke or spoke to spoke all with ease and complete visibility.
