Presto File Server

Nowadays, the commonly used file transfer methods such as FTP or HTTP/S can no longer suffice the growing needs for instant file transfer across the globe. Presto File Server ensures fast and secure delivery of massive data over high-speed WAN and effectively utilizes the available bandwidth, transforming Synology NAS into a high-speed file transfer portal.

SITA technology

Synology Internet Transfer Accelerator (SITA) is a WAN acceleration technology developed by Synology. SITA improves file transfer performance and overcomes the common problems 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.

Transfer digital data at a high speed

Transfer data at a high speed to anywhere, at any time

  • Accelerate the speed for transferring frequently accessed files to overseas branches

    The time elapsed when transferring files between companies and their overseas branches via FTP/HTTP(S) may be long enough for employees to temporarily leave the current tasks idle, thus affecting work efficiency. SITA overcomes this issue with its accelerated file transfer speeds, shortening transfer time and enhancing work productivity.

  • Satisfy the needs for exchanging gigantic data

    Delivering large files to overseas destinations via FTP/HTTP(S) may take several days. Storing data on hard drives and ship them to destinations may be faster, but this involves extra costs and the risks of data damage or loss. 

    Presto File Server delivers data at a much faster speed in the existing network environment, benefiting industries that need to 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.

Credentials protected by encryption and 2-step verification

Login credentials are secured in a dedicated TLS/TCP encrypted channel. The 2-step verification adds an extra layer of protection to the credentials, preventing malicious parties or viruses from attacking them even if they were hacked.

Encrypted file transfer

Presto desktop client supports AES-128 encryption, ensuring that bulk data transfer is highly secured in the SITA-powered UDP channel.

Intuitive Presto desktop client

The intuitive Presto desktop client enables users to securely and rapidly exchange data on all major platforms.

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

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 Mac Finder, and can also use the native hotkey combinations on context menu to copy, paste, rename, and delete files.
