The DBSyncs FTP (File Transfer Protocol) connector implements a file transport channel so that the DBSync iPaaS can exchange files with an external FTP server. The FTP connector can download the file from an FTP server and even upload files to an FTP server. This solution can also be used to read file(s) and also for writing to existing file(s).
- In memory data transfer over TCP or “Store and forward”
Files when moving between Cloud apps to FTP servers often requires additional security considerations, especially when you are in a highly regulated environment. Unlike many FTP applications, DBSync supports both in-memory or “store and forward” file transfer capabilities.
- Post-processing operations
Once a file or data is processed, you will very likely need to run post-processing calls like moving processed files into another folder or deleting them. DBSync post processing allows you to configure actions to be taken after the process has been completed. The action can be any operating system command, or an executable file.
- Different ways to run the process
A process can be run in two different ways: manually and using the scheduler. A manual run is useful in tests or sporadic use. The scheduler lets you manage repeated runs, or runs at a specific date and time. You can create more than one schedule.
- Compliance with regulations and standards
DBSync helps your business comply with legal requirements regarding backups, such as the ones defined by HIPAA in the USA and the GDPR in the EU, and conform to standards such as the ISO 270001 and the PCI-DSS.
- No per user costs
Your license doesn’t limit you to a number of users.
- Automated file backups by decreasing the manual intervention from any CRM, Accounting system to a remote FTP server.
- Post processing of files from one directory to another directory within a file system.
