Presto File Server

Commonly used file transfer protocols such as FTP or HTTP(S) can no longer suffice the growing needs for instant file transfer across the globe. Presto File Server effectively utilizes the available bandwidth and delivers fast, stable, and secure file transfers over WAN, transforming Synology NAS into a high-speed file transfer portal. 

SITA technology

Synology Internet Transfer Accelerator (SITA) is a transfer acceleration technology developed by Synology. SITA improves file transfer performance and solves issues involving high-latency and unstable connections when transferring files over long-distances, making Presto File Server the optimal solution for transferring massive files over WAN.

  • Unleash the potential of bandwidth

    Stagnation caused by network latency leaves available bandwidth idle. By improving the packet delivery assurance mechanism adopted by HTTP/FTP, SITA reduces stagnation and takes full advantage of the available bandwidth.
  • Configurable transfer speed

    With SITA, users can configure the minimum and maximum bandwidth according to their needs, thereby better predicting and controlling the required file transfer time for different tasks.  

Transfer digital data at high speeds

High speed data transfer to anywhere, at any time

  • Accelerate remote workflow with faster file transfers

    The time it takes to transfer files between companies and their overseas branches via FTP/HTTP(S) can stall projects and affect work efficiency. This issue is solved by SITA’s accelerated file transfer speeds and shortened transfer time, thus maintaining productivity.

  • Easily exchange gigantic amounts of data

    Using FTP/HTTP(S) to deliver large files to overseas destinations may take several days. Storing data on hard drives and shipping them to set destinations may be faster, but extra costs and the risks of data damage or loss are involved. Presto File Server delivers data at much faster speeds in the existing network environment, benefiting industries that frequently transfer large data, such as multimedia and entertainment, engineering and manufacturing, and healthcare industries.

Secure data transfer

Presto File Server transfers files at a high speed, without compromising the security of your login credentials or data.

Credential encryption and 2-step verification

Login credentials are secured in a dedicated TLS/TCP encrypted channel. The 2-step verification protects your credentials from attacks by malicious third parties and viruses.

File transfer encryption

Presto’s desktop client supports AES-128 encryption, ensuring that bulk data transfers remains highly secured as they pass through the Internet.

SSL verification

The Presto desktop client includes SSL verification to prevent users from connecting to phishing sites with untrusted SSL certificates, keeping their Internet connection secure and safeguarding sensitive data. 

Intuitive desktop client

The intuitive Presto desktop client enables users to securely and rapidly exchange data on all major operating systems, such as Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Adding new tabs on Presto desktop client allows users to concurrently connect to multiple Presto File Servers. Login credentials are automatically saved, eliminating the hassle of needing to remember server addresses and credentials and simplifying the transfer process.

Transfer tasks can be prioritized on Task Manager, and the detailed logs keep a record of different accounts’ recent activities on different servers.

You can easily transfer files by dragging and dropping files between Presto and a local or network folder on Windows File Explorer or Mac Finder and can also use the native hotkey combinations on context menu to copy, paste, rename, and delete files.

Right-click to instantly download one or multiple files to the selected folders or to default local folders in Settings.

Flexible resource management

Presto desktop client serves as an optimal solution for exchanging files between PC and Synology NAS.

Dispatch and monitor resources

Transfer tasks can be prioritized on Task Manager and detailed logs keep records of different accounts’ recent activities on different servers. Administrators can set the maximum number of concurrent file transfers to ensure the available bandwidth is fully utilized by the prioritized tasks.

Flexible bandwidth control

Bandwidth can be directly adjusted on Presto desktop client according to local needs. Setting the maximum and minimum bandwidth for file transfers allows users to better predict the required file transfer time and manage the bandwidth resources in the existing network environment.  

Smart compression

Presto desktop client can adapt to different data types and environments. When transferring incompressible data, the data compression function will be instantly disabled to conserve CPU resources.

Monitoring and management

With Presto File Server installed on DSM, administrators can effortlessly monitor bandwidth usage and transfer quality in real-time.

  • Real-time traffic status

    Presto File Server on DSM offers an intuitive panel for monitoring the current transfer quality and connected clients.
