What is multi-cloud connection, and why is it important?
Sometimes you and your users need to connect to multiple cloud storage locations.
For example, your development team decides to code in AWS Lambda, but the data they need is stored in Azure Blob. The team doesn’t want to do the development in Azure, so they need a way to move this data to AWS to get their work done. Data sharing and collaboration get much easier when you have a simple way to move it between clouds.
The team can quickly transfer their files from Azure Blob Storage to Amazon S3 using SFTP Gateway’s multi-cloud connection capabilities. It’s as simple as setting up two folders, each pointing to a different cloud storage location. Check out the video below to see what multi-cloud connection looks like for data sharing and collaboration using SFTP Gateway.
This configuration allows you to instantly transfer all your files from one cloud to another with a single SFTP connection.
Making this file transfer process even simpler is that you only need to spin up one server–either on AWS, Azure or Google Cloud Platform (GCP)–and you can access multiple clouds from that one server. There’s no need to spin up a server in each cloud to get multi-cloud connections with SFTP Gateway. You’re sharing data in fewer steps with SFTP Gateway and can get back to the work you want to focus on.
