  • Improved: performance and reliability of the [%USER_HOME%] finder function inside the VFS subsystem

  • Fixed: few other minor and rarely occurring issues

Syncplify.me Server! now available on AWS Marketplace

Syncplify.me Server! version 4.0 is now available on AWS Marketplace offering top security with hassle-free deployment, a 15-day free trial, and no up-front license fees.

WILMINGTON, DE – Syncplify, Inc., a young and dynamic US-based software development company, has released Syncplify.me Server!, a highly secure SFTP server available on Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace). The new service is marketed under the name SFTP.cloud.

Syncplify.me Server! on AWS delivers the same level of security as its on-premises brother product, but without the need to go through a complex, lengthy installation procedure, and with no up-front traditional licensing fees. In fact, after the 15-day trial period, Syncplify.me Server! on AWS is charged on an hourly basis only for the actual usage.

“From a technical standpoint, making our software available on AWS Marketplace was a great choice to deploy a very secure file transfer server onto a highly reliable, globally available infrastructure,” said Fjodr Soyevskji, Chief Technology Officer at Syncplify, Inc.

“We believe that this relationship with AWS will greatly benefit our customers, especially those who need to deploy highly dynamic, secure, file transfer infrastructures that change frequently over time,” said Helga Kessler, Chief Operation Officer.

Customers can deploy the Syncplify.me Server! edition they need (Basic, Professional or Ultimate) on AWS, and they can choose between Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 EC2 instances.

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.0+

One of the biggest additions to the upcoming version 4.0 of Syncplify.me Server! is the VFS (Virtual File System) support. But what is it exactly? And what advantages does it bring to our users?

Let’s start by setting the bar with v3. Our version 3.x, in fact – as nearly every competitor – allows you to place users’ “homes” (root directories) on a disk. It can be a local or a network disk, but it’s basically disk-based. The following picture explains the concept in a visual way: Continue reading
