Maytech Introduces FTP Solution to Speed Data Transfer to/from Hong Kong and Mainland China

Share Article

FTP-Stream enables companies to exchange large files quickly with business partners in Hong Kong and mainland China, bypassing latency caused by local filtering and the cross-Pacific public Internet.

With businesses running on tight schedules, there simply isn't time to mail DVD files and wait for them to be delivered. Electronic file transfer provides the only viable solution

Historically, FTP file transfer (http://www.maytech.net/ftp_intro.php) to China has been problematic, since slow links and congestion at the international gateway leads to very slow data rates and broken transfers. Maytech Communications Ltd has introduced the FTP-Stream China service to solve this problem. It provides a pair of mirrored FTP sites, so that organizations in the U.S. and Europe with business operations in Hong Kong and mainland China can exchange large files, such as complex CAD files or 3D visualizations.

With FTP-Stream China, a pair of mirrored FTP sites, one in Hong Kong with fast regional connections, and one in the U.S. or Europe, enable fast, reliable file transfers. For example, files uploaded to the Hong Kong site by regional partners are mirrored automatically over the private network and vice versa.

"With businesses running on tight schedules, there simply isn't time to mail DVD files and wait for them to be delivered. Electronic file transfer provides the only viable solution," says Antony Freeman of Maytech Communications. "Our system utilizes an uncongested fiber network with interconnected data centers in the U.S., Europe, and Hong Kong. The Hong Kong data center incorporates direct regional links with mainland China, opening a speedy means of intercommunication."

Maytech has recently committed to having a strong presence in Hong Kong. The company has implemented significant upgrades to both server and storage capacity, and has also reserved bandwidth over fiber links to the U.S. and Europe that is not touched by the congested pathways of the public Internet.

Depending on requirements, the FTP-Stream China service is available in a range of plans. All provide server space in Hong Kong, the U.S., and Europe, and include 2-way data mirroring. Service plans span a range of FTP storage capacities and also include SFTP file transfer capabilities. Plan rates range from $64 to $1496 per month and $704 to $16456 per year for the business plans.

"Our FTP-Stream China service offerings launch a new realm of international business communications. The business plan enables unlimited transfer capacities over the Web, via FTP or Secure FTP. Latency problems with transferring large files between Hong Kong and mainland China, and the rest of the world, will be a thing of the past," added Freeman.
