FTP/ File sharing question
on Nov 20, 2013 at 11:51:55 am

Hi there,

I'm an editor based in London and I have a team in Mexico at the moment about to send me about 10GB worth of footage.

We've signed up to the FTP site Wuala for sharing, but the upload time is too slow and I need to switch to another.

Can anyone give any advise on a good file transfer host?

your response - "Oh My God ! do you know how expensive these services are ? Isn't there anything cheaper " -

you want fast transfer, you pay for a custom encoding solution like this, or you pay for a faster "pipe" from your internet provider. I know people paying $2000 a month for specialty pipes to do very fast uploads (and you client needs a fast pipe too).

I spoke with Level 3 at NAB 2013 - you want fast, you pay.

Bob's right. As usual.
Here's some info I have that he may not -

For this type of solution, you can consider using HELIOS Webshare and Document Hub.

You can even try it out free of charge for this transfer.

I will need to make a special log for you on my LA Server and also send you instructions on how to use it with drag and drop as well as Resume if transfer stalls or fails due to some strange issue.

I can also provide you with pricing for your own server.

Or we can charge for this one but giving someone a test drive and then offering a spot on the server or their own server would be the best way to make certain this is a valid solution.

For the data hosting, if you need that, this can be hosted at the same site for a higher price of course too.

If you're interested, you'll need to give me a shout so we can talk.
