Presto File Server

Delivering instant and automated high-speed transfer between endpoints and server over WAN the way businesses deserve but can't reach with protocols like FTP and HTTP.

SITA technology

Synology Internet Transfer Accelerator (SITA) is a transfer acceleration technology developed by Synology. It improves file transfer performance and conquers high-latency and unstable connections when transferring files over long distances.
See the performance tests

  • Unleash the potential of your bandwidth

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

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

Transfer digital data at high speed

  • Transfer digital data at high speed

    Accelerate remote workflows with faster file transfers

    The time it takes to transfer files between a company and its overseas branches via FTP or HTTP can delay projects and negatively impact efficiency. With SITA, time spent on transfer is greatly shortened, improving business continuity. See the performance tests

  • Transfer digital data at high speed

    Easily exchange massive amounts of data

    Delivering large files abroad via FTP or HTTP can take several days. Shipping data on hard drives may be faster, but with extra costs and risks of data loss. Presto File Server delivers data at much faster speeds in the existing network environment, benefiting industries that frequently transfer large data, such as multimedia, entertainment, engineering, manufacturing, healthcare, and more.

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 bulk data remain highly secured as they transfer.

SSL verification

Synology Presto Client includes SSL verification to prevent users from connecting to phishing sites with untrusted SSL certificates, keeping the connection secure and safeguarding sensitive data.

Intuitive client for instant and automated transfer

The intuitive Synology Presto Client enables users to rapidly exchange data on all major operating systems anytime they wish, including Windows, macOS, and Linux. You can now use Presto through a command-line interface (CLI) based on the customized script that best fits your usage scenario.

Adding new tabs on Synology Presto Client allows users to connect to multiple Presto File Servers concurrently. 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 Transfer Manager, and the detailed logs keep a record of the recent activities of different accounts on different servers.

You can drag and drop files between Presto and Windows File Explorer or macOS Finder, and can also use the native hotkey combinations on context menu to copy, paste, rename, and delete files.

Rapid, automated NAS-to-NAS file transfer

Transferring large files between multiple sites can take a long time, but for Synology NAS devices, you can schedule high-speed transfers across multiple sites with Synology Presto's Site Express. It automates file distribution by triggering the file transfer from one NAS to another, and its visualized interface allows you to view the current transfer status at a glance.

Flexible resource management

Synology Presto Client serves as an optimal solution for exchanging files between your PC and Synology NAS.

Dispatch and monitor resources

Priority of transfer tasks can be adjusted in Task Manager. Admins can keep track of events of different accounts on different servers through activity logs. Admins can also set the limitation on the number of concurrent file transfers to ensure the bandwidth is fully utilized by the prioritized tasks.

Flexible bandwidth control

Bandwidth can be adjusted directly on Synology Presto Client according to what's needed on-premises. Setting the maximum and minimum bandwidth thresholds for file transfers allows better prediction of the required transfer time and bandwidth resource management.

Smart compression

Synology Presto Client can adapt to different data types and environments. The data compression function will be disabled to save CPU resources during incompressible data transfers.

Automating high-speed transfer

You can automate the high-speed transfer according to your needs with the command-line interface support and desktop tool — Synology Presto Automator1.

Customizable transfer experience

Multiple ways to schedule

Have your tasks be transferred in high-speed at your desired schedule or triggered by event.

Centralized 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 connected servers and clients, as well as the current transfer quality.

  • Centralized transfer policy management

    Creating and applying accessibility and transfer policies to different connections on the licensed server is centralized. Set the priority by dragging and dropping these policies to cope with ever-changing environments in near real-time.

  • Detailed activity logs

    The detailed activity logs contain upload and download activity history, traffic records, and file counts, assisting administrators to identify possible transfer issues and manage bandwidth settings.

  • Generate scheduled reports

    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.

Notes:

  1. The application can be installed through the Synology Presto Client Installer.
