Ipswitch Delivers High Availability With Popular WS_FTP Server

New Failover Configuration Ensures Increased Uptime and Reliability for File Transfer Services

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Ipswitch File Transfer , an innovator of secure, managed file transfer (MFT) and high-performance integration solutions, today announced that its widely used WS_FTP Server solution can now be deployed in a failover configuration for high availability. As MFT continues to become more strategic in IT environments, ensuring uninterrupted service to users and meeting SLAs is vital.

"We use WS_FTP Server to securely transfer HIPAA sensitive data from our customers' sites to our own," said Kelly Woods, Senior Systems Engineer, HealthMEDX, Inc., the number one US-based provider for long-term care software, home care software, and rehab software. "With the product's new failover capability, we can now deliver increased uptime and reliability to our customers."

WS_FTP Server makes administering a file transfer server easy and secure. Used by administrators globally to support millions of end users and petabytes of data, WS_FTP Server provides powerful administrative control over server access and user permissions. For added flexibility and ease of deployment, this new failover configuration supports both Microsoft Cluster Services (MSCS) and Microsoft IIS web farms using Microsoft Network Load Balancing (NLB). 

"As organizations rely more and more on file transfer to exchange mission-critical files and data with global partners, employees, vendors and customers, downtime is not an option," said Jonathan Lampe, Vice President of Product Management, Ipswitch File Transfer. "Now that WS_FTP Server has failover capability, all of our server products deliver the high availability our customers demand, regardless of company size or project maturity."
