The changing business of large file transfer- From FTP to SaaS

Businesses these days mainly operate on data like facts, figures, and values. However, the same data becomes a nasty drain clog when its stockpiles. Organizations tend to face significant financial losses if they can’t bring data to the right place at the right time. The flow of data across the Internet is steadily and constantly increasing, with annual global Internet Protocol (IP) traffic predicted to reach 3.3 zettabytes by 2021. As per the Cisco report, the overall IP traffic is expected to grow to 396 EB per month by 2022, up from 122 EB per month in 2017, a CAGR of 26 percent


As most of the organizations need to transfer a huge amount of unstructured data across the borders, they tend to rely on the outdated FTP technology. The FTP method for data transfer solves less than half of the problem. This protocol doesn’t handle beyond 30 connections and its failure rate of 8% is very expensive. Apart from the costs surrounding this protocol, there are reliability, security, auditing and flexibility issues associated with it. Some the reasons why we need to stop using FTP are listed below
