Cloud Connector Module (CCM)

Slow and inefficient data transfer processes waste valuable company resources. When your organization relies on manual and intermittent processes to deliver the data they need, day-to-day productivity becomes vulnerable to manpower limitations and simple human error. Automating your data exchange processes allows you to deliver data reliably and efficiently.

Automate Cloud Transfers

Organizations are moving at least some of their infrastructure to the cloud to take advantage of numerous business benefits, including agility, cost savings, and scalability. IT teams often look to move new projects or non-sensitive data to the cloud first. This often includes data that is moved to cloud storage for backup and redundancy planning, to be consumed by cloud services, or for transfer to a third party. IT teams have a few methods to accomplish this today but each has its own drawbacks. Enhanced File Transfer’s (EFT) Cloud Connector Module (CCM) gives the IT team a seamless process to move data to the cloud. With CCM, you can quickly connect to Amazon Web Services or Azure storage moving data from on-premises to the cloud or from EFT in the cloud to a separate instance of cloud storage.

Native Cloud Connectivity Through EFT

The CCM is an action added to EFT’s native Event Rule system. The cloud action supports transfers from and to Amazon S3 and Azure containers. CCM includes numerous advanced settings, like multi-part encryption, and requestor-pay functionality.

The Cloud Connector Module has the following capabilities:

  • Files arriving at EFT can be automatically copied/moved to cloud storage.
  • Timer rules can download files from cloud storage at set intervals.
  • Seamless integration with EFT’s other powerful, post-processing engine.

With the CCM, EFT Admins can:

  • Connect natively to Amazon S3 and Azure blobs without scripting, manual browsing, or complexity in setting up connections
  • Integrate natively with cloud storage through EFT without the need for outside integration
  • Add CCM connection information to a reusable Connection Profile—define it once and reuse it in multiple Event Rules

The CCM actions are:

  • Copy/Move file to cloud storage
  • Download file from cloud storage
