Replace Legacy File Transfer with Cloud MFT

Move to the cloud and reduce operational costs by 40% over 3 years

Why Migrate File Transfers to Cloud MFT?

Managed file transfer platform as a service (MFTPaaS) is designed for the cloud and is the fastest growing category of MFT software. Think strategically and modernize your organization by adopting the cloud as part of your data integration strategy.

Cloud Economics

Thru’s cloud-native MFT solution replaces legacy file transfer technologies and offers the benefits of true cloud economics:

  • Get MFT service as a subscription.
  • Pay as you go based on number and type of file transfer transactions.
  • Get service started instantly with zero or minimal deployment footprint and cost.
  • Shift from a capital expenditure (CapEx) to an operating expenditure (OpEx) funding model for MFT service.
  • Eliminate infrastructure and operation costs.
  • Reduce maintenance and support costs and risks due to automated feature delivery, 24/7 support service and 99.99% uptime.

Elastic Scalability

Thru is a cloud-native application and service that utilizes native cloud platform technologies such as tiered cloud database services, cloud storage subscriptions and virtual networking. All components of our distributed hybrid architecture scale out as needed for the load and are designed with elasticity. Resources required to transfer or process the file-based data are allocated or deallocated dynamically as needed.

Unlike with legacy MFT software, organizations do not have to plan MFT service capacity. Thru handles the workload according to subscription and under a 99.99% SLA.

Built-In Security and Automatic Updates

Organizations use different cloud providers, and large organizations sometimes manage multiple cloud environments. Thru runs on all major cloud providers. We offer multi-tenant and private cloud options. When running in our cloud, customers benefit from our defense-in-depth security model for file access and transfer which includes

  • End-to-end encryption (E2EE) for data in transfer and at rest
  • Authentication and authorization
  • Multiple layers of security in service infrastructure and application components

With any cloud option, Thru offers a continuous delivery (CD) pipeline which orchestrates automated deployment of software updates to development, test or production environments.

Crocs Migrates File Transfers to the Cloud

By switching to Thru, Crocs can easily auto-scale to modernize file transfer automation across its global organization.

“We wanted to provide an enterprise-wide foundation for file transfer activities. As we go through and uncover needs in other groups, we have a more common approach to how we transfer files around the enterprise.”

How to Migrate from Legacy MFT to Cloud MFT

Playbook of migrating managed file transfers to the cloud illustration

Do not underestimate the time and effort required to migrate existing file transfer processes. To ensure file transfer migration projects are successful, Thru created a file transfer migration playbook. This playbook provides a step-by-step guide on how to plan and move existing file transfer processes from one system to another.

If your company is adopting a cloud MFT tool for new file transfer processes, then migration is not required as each process will be new and will be configured in the Thru GUI.

How to Connect Cloud MFT to Legacy Systems

Even as companies look to modernize their IT infrastructure, many continue running mission-critical workloads on application systems like IBM’s AS/400. If your file transfer migration project requires integration with legacy systems, Thru can help meet these challenges with its cloud managed file transfer in a distributed hybrid architecture deployment.
