transfer files to Google Cloud

If you missed the news earlier this year, SFTP Gateway can be used to transfer files to Google Cloud Storage via SFTP now too.

After thousands of deployments via the AWS and Azure Marketplaces, SFTP Gateway remains a simple and secure way for users to access cloud storage locations like Amazon S3 and Azure Blob Storage. And, as some of you have already discovered, it’s a great way to transfer files to Google Cloud Storage as well.

You can get started with a 30-day free trial of SFTP Gateway whenever you’re ready.

The affordable way to transfer files to Google Cloud

SFTP Gateway is one of the most affordable ways to connect to the cloud via SFTP, at only six cents an hour, plus your cloud infrastructure charges. AWS Transfer and Azure’s SFTP solution are both 35 cents an hour. Compared to many other options, SFTP Gateway could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars each year.

If you’re a new Google Cloud user, a 30-day free trial is available, allowing you to take SFTP Gateway for a test drive and save even more. Just head to the Google Marketplace to get started with your trial.

SFTP Gateway is also typically a more affordable option than building an SFTP solution yourself. Many users try SFTP Gateway after realizing how time-consuming and expensive it was to keep their own solution up and running. You also get a lot more features with SFTP Gateway than what most in-house solutions offer.
