FileZilla, the open source file transfer protocol (FTP) solution, announced OpenStack Swift support for its FileZilla Pro, as it celebrates the first anniversary.
What is FileZilla Pro?
The FileZilla Pro is cross-platform file access and transfer software application that already supports WebDAV, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob and File Storage, and Google Cloud Storage. The application is used by thousands of sysadmins, web developers, designers and other IT professionals to easily move files between remote servers and computing environments.
It also allows users to upload a website to the server of hosting provider using FTP and other protocols. It is available for Windows and macOS.
FileZilla Pro for OpenStack Swift
Swift, the OpenStack Object Store project, provides cloud storage software, allowing users to store and retrieve data with a simple API. The Swift is considered an ideal solution to store unstructured data that grows without any limitations.
Initially, the FileZilla Pro will support the authentication using Keystone version 2, with support for Keystone version 3 expected in upcoming release.
“Our support of OpenStack brings FileZilla Pro to one of the fastest growing Open Source Cloud projects,” said Tim Kosse, original creator and principal author of FileZilla. “Our commitment to providing intuitive file management capabilities for moving thousands of files quickly and easily is becoming a reality with each new release.”
“We are happy to provide OpenStack users the ability to securely share files using FileZilla Pro,” added Kosse. “We remain on our trajectory to offer future support for Dropbox, OneDrive, and other protocols.”
FileZilla Pro comes with an in-built user interface (UI) and a Site Manager which allow users to organize sites and bookmarks. Along with the OpenStack Swift support, FileZilla has also announced updates to the UI of Site Manager to make it easier for users to setup a connection to their server or cloud storage service.
The FileZilla Pro with OpenStack Swift support is now available for both Windows and macOS.
