FileZilla

I use FileZilla to securely upload files that are not permitted to be sent via insecure methods like email or web forms. FileZilla is great to test the ability to "reach" the remote SFTP server and to verify my files arrived. Once I have tested that, then our internal IT group automates the uploads to these third parties, however I can always manually log into FIleZilla to verify the uploads.

GoAnywhere is easy to use and easy to learn. Once you get the basics down learning how to do advanced functions becomes even easier. Their support is top notch and is always ready to lend a hand.

Pros

FileZilla

  • Strips away unwanted underlying code from products that produce documents using any Microsoft product that is not needed in our products.
  • The nice part is that it strips away hidden code such as ctrl and another digit that is not necessary or can be replaced with the correct coding to produce standard processes such as graphics using ANSI or another protocol as well as line feeds and header masks.
  • We are in the process of determining if their pro product will function in the way we want it to across networks rather than going to each workstation to make changes decreasing our productivity.
  • We are also evaluating whether their technical support is responsive.

  • Data extraction: You can pull data from nearly any database and send it to users/partners in a variety of formats.
  • Data transformation: Great for massaging data and transforming it to XML, text, spreadsheets, etc.
  • Data Integration: An extremely useful tool for moving data between different systems. I have used it to integrate data from Oracle, Netezza, DB2, SQL Server, and even Interbase.

Cons

FileZilla

  • Server version for Linux: The FileZilla Server version is only available for Windows and not available for the Linux Operating System. As we have a huge Linux fan base and most of the servers being deployed on Linux across the world, there is a need for the server version of this software to be available on Linux.
  • Proper tutorials for all the available features: I sometimes feel that this tool offers so many advanced features, but most of them remain hidden behind some nested options. This happens because of a lack of official tutorials of this tool.

  • Reviewing support cases on support web site.
  • Testing remote resources is limited without creating a project.
  • With so many features, it can take awhile to master it.

FileZilla is really easy to understand and makes it easy to log into servers to upload files. Moving files around is a breeze (even if it's a little tedious to wait for large quantities to move one by one) and editing html and css files directly is a feature it would be difficult for us to live without

Since using it and having time to work with it, its process and actions are growing on me and once a project is created one can implement across numerous location or platforms

I've never contacted FileZilla support directly, but they are so popular that there are countless tutorials online showing how to connect to any number of web servers, how to configure SSH/SFTP and so on. I feel that because of the popularity of FileZilla, the support from the general user community is sufficient.

GoAnywhere's support team is absolutely wonderful. They are always very fast to respond and will do anything that they can to help you with whatever dilemma you are facing. They also have a great user forum that is very helpful if you are looking for the solution to a problem or just want some advice from others. They are constantly looking to improve and always looking for suggestions on what customers would like to see next which is refreshing.

Implementation was straight forward. We paid for 50 hours of professional service in case, we need help. We end using only 10 hours. I have only 1 month to convert over 120 scripts from FTP voyager to goanywhere. Old script was had written using bat files. Some of the batch file were written by some other person, who passed away. Documents for old script was not in details. With the professional service, I was able to convert all script within windows

Alternatives Considered

FileZilla

We've used mostly either command-line FTP programs built-in to the operating systems, or we've used web-based file transfer sites. Some of these web-based sites might require Java or other specific browser addons, which sometimes are not safe and/or can be hacked, so it's much safer and more convenient to use FileZilla instead for all file transfer purposes.

  • GoAnywhere adds features as extra modules, allowing you to start with the most basic file transferring solution and scaling up as you find other uses. Adding more modules means that you are building on an existing platform, and you will not need to seek out other vendors.
  • Compared to other products such as MoveIt, the projects can take more time to create as it seems less intuitive than MoveIt but adds to its potential as you learn the many extra functions available.

Return on Investment

FileZilla

  • The positive impact is easy file management. Since we have multiple clients some of them have different host providers which offer their own FTP interface. Using FileZilla allows us to use one interface to interact with all of our client files.
  • The return on investment is quick turnaround for updating files.

  • GA MFT has reduced the time and resources needed to devote to file transfer processes.
  • Administration of processes has become easier to manage.
  • Files are easily monitored to ensure successful transmissions. No more missed files!
