Synology® Announces the Official Release of Presto File Server

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — 12th June 2017 — Synology® Inc. today announced the official release of Presto File Server, a new application for Synology NAS that speeds up and significantly shortens the time required for transferring massive data over WAN, while also simplifying the steps for deployment and IT management.   

Based on the network-attached storage provider's exclusive Synology Internet Transfer Accelerator (SITA) technology, Presto File Server effectively overcomes the common problems involving high-latency and unstable connections when transferring files over long-distances via other protocols like FTP, and significantly accelerates transfer speeds when delivering massive data to distant destinations. 

"The commonly used file transfer methods can no longer suffice the growing needs for long-distance collaboration and mass data transfer across the globe," said Jia-Yu Liu, Senior Manager of Cloud & Backup Division at Synology Inc. "Presto File Server solves file transfer problems from two dimensions: first, our SITA technology overcomes the common transmission performance issues that occurred when files were transferred over long distances; and second, the intuitive user interface enables users to quickly become familiar with the package features".

Key features of Presto File Server include:

  • SITA-powered high-speed file transfer: When delivering a large amount of digital files to distant destinations, SITA ensures files of all types and sizes are transferred at high-speed over WAN.
  • Highly-secured file transfer: AES encryption is supported on Presto desktop client. Login credentials are secured in a dedicated TLS/TCP encrypted channel, with a 2-step verification adding an extra layer of protection to the credentials. 

  • Reports generated according to schedules: Administrators can easily export daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports on Presto File Server and send them to designated email addresses according to set schedules.  

  • Intuitive user interface: Presto desktop enables users to safely exchange data on major platforms such as Mac, Windows, and Linux.
