For anyone who needs to receive/send files between themselves and others, in an organized fashion, I would strongly recommend Serv-U as a great tool at a sensible cost. In our line of work, we can get several customers signed in at once, each sending in hundreds of Megabytes of data simultaneously. Serv-U has never struggled with this. We don't use the Quota set up for sending/receiving data but I can see it is useful where an exchange of information is the point.

SolarWinds Serv-U is perfect for departments who call all the time because their emails bounce due to large file size. The desktop icon allows them to send the files with no interaction from us, allowing us to work on more pressing issues.

Active Directory integration could definitely use some improvement. This was the biggest hindrance while implementing for us.

I believe that SolarWinds Serv-U is well suited for small to medium businesses that do not require an expensive high-end FTP server. Also, once the server is configured the daily administration can be handled by less experienced IT personnel. In my opinion this product may not be the right solution a large enterprise with heavy FTP traffic.
