Transfer Scenarios

MassTransit elegantly supports both simple and complex file transfer scenarios, ranging from email-like user-to-user deliveries, to fully automated site-to-site use cases, including powerful workflow tools and APIs to support integration and scripting to handle more complex or custom situations.

  • Client-to-client transfers MassTransit makes it very easy for users to send each other files through a web portal or with the plug-in for Outlook. Senders can upload files directly from their desktop. Recipients receive an email with a link to download the file through the browser.
  • Mixed client and server file transfers Users can send files to remote file servers or receive files that have been copied into folders on remote file servers. This means that companies have tremendous flexibility in how and when files are transferred.
  • Automated digital supply chains MassTransit can automate even the most complex business processes that connect multiple users and systems.
  • Site-to-site transfers Push and pull files without user intervention. Companies can setup "hot folders" on file servers at multiple sites or companies.

Tracking, Logging and Compliance

MassTransit's logging and reporting capabilities are critical to ensuring both visibility and control.

  • Comprehensive, auditable, user-friendly log All aspects of the file transfer process are tracked. MassTransit tracks users, "send" progress and updates the log as to where files sit in the queue.
  • Reporting tools MassTransit provides rich, web-based reporting that significantly increases visibility and control into system usage, what information is being sent, system health and performance.

Management and Provisioning

FTP server administration is typically an IT administrator's nightmare. MassTransit streamlines all of this, requiring a fraction of the cost and time that would have otherwise been required to support hundreds of users.

  • Active Directory automated client provisioning MassTransit can be bound to Microsoft's Active Directory groups to completely automate user provisioning, authentication and delivery permissions.
  • Active Directory user authentication MassTransit can be tightly integrated with Microsoft's Active Directory to enforce user access rights and compliance with corporate credential policies.
  • Automated system cleanup and optimization MassTransit automatically deletes older files and unused accounts according to rules set by the administrator.
  • Rich monitoring interfaces MassTransit provides monitoring interfaces to Microsoft Perfmon or other compatible system monitoring tools.
