StingRay Managed File Transfer Server Launched on New Hardware Platform

Dorset, United Kingdom, June 26, 2009 --( After much anticipation, Pro2col are pleased to announce the availability of the Hermstedt StingRay file transfer server on a new and improved hardware platform. This is a significant step forward for the award winning managed file transfer appliance, closely following on the heels of the release of version 2.5 in December last year.

The new 1U appliance offers users enhanced file transfer features such as faster processing and more robust hardware. These improvements result in increased throughput; minimal downtime and therefore a faster and more efficient file transfer process. Customers will be pleased to hear that they can benefit from this new hardware at the same starting price of £2500.

Pro2col’s Managing Director, James Lewis commented, "The transition from desktop server to a more robust, traditional rack-mount appliance has been driven by customer demand. Whilst it’s taken a while to get there we now have a 21st century hardware platform to take StingRay forward and accommodate the additional functionality we’re building in. It looks better and is a lot faster now with Gigabit Ethernet enabling increases of up to 313% on the file transfer speeds."

Encompassing the same range of large file delivery options as the previous model, users are able to send and receive large files via FTP, HTTP, SMTP, Email Hyperlink, POP3 and Leonardo over IP. The server also still offers users the same value-added features indicative of managed file transfer solutions that enable them to streamline business processes. These include; email notification, full tracking and logging, group sending, workflow forwarding, hot folder sending and more.

Competitive upgrade options are available to existing customers wishing to migrate to the new hardware platform. For further information please visit the Hermstedt StingRay website at or contact Pro2col on 0870 250 2220.
