Posts from ‘WS_FTP Professional’
Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with the sales representatives and account managers at CompuCom, many of whom have been selling Ipswitch solutions for a long time. It was a return visit to CompuCom’s Dallas headquarters for me, having attended a similar vendor fair about 6 months ago.
Many of our conversations centered on the types of problems that CompuCom customers are asking them help solve with technology solutions. Top of the list are topics such as: Group policy management, security, compliance, B2B exchanges and virtualization.
About a dozen or so of the representatives I talked with focus solely on renewal business. It was nice to see the enthusiasm on long-term customer relationship and growing existing customer accounts. One upsell in particular that was mentioned quite often for existing WS_FTP Server customers was adding the Ad Hoc Transfer module for person-to-person transfers using either Outlook or a browser.
Oh, and team Veeam – nice spending time with you guys. You may have won the bowling match over team Ipswitch, but I return home to Boston knowing that Sam Adams beat Shiner Bock (TX’s so-called national beer) in the head-to-head comparison taste test!
Here’s an amazing tale of how Ipswitch WS_FTP software is being used by the European Columbus laboratory to securely transfer hundreds of megabytes of scientific data between the International Space Station and Earth.
“Crew time is so valuable and the volume of data involved is so large that a reliable and secure system for data transfer was absolutely essential,” explained Alain Maillet, Cadmos engineer.
“WS_FTP gives us the possibility to transfer all our scientific data files automatically and securely, not only in space, but also back down to Earth – it is secure, stable and easy-to-use.”
Here’s an action photo of Alain Maillet talking with the International Space Station from Toulouse, France.
