Group Logic’s big-muscle file transfer platform MassTransit has been updated, and now includes a host of features that take advantage of the UNIX core underneath Mac OS X.
MassTransit 4.2 takes an enterprise approach to file distribution between remote work sites. Files are moved onto the MassTransit server, which in turn moves them automatically to remote MassTransit servers. The software provides file logging and version tracking, and allows for remote collaboration. Mac and PC versions of the software are available, allowing for seamless file transfers between platforms.
The newest version now runs on Mac OS X, and adds new options for Web based file transfer workflows, integrated security for web-transferred files. The software takes advantage of Mac OS X’s networking enhancements for enhanced file transfer system architectures.
According to Andy Lewis, VP of Sales and Marketing at Group Logic, “The stability, reliability and performance of Mac OS X make it an excellent platform for mission-critical server software packages such as our MassTransit Enterprise product.”
MassTransit is utilized by graphic art houses, printing services, printers, prepress companies and other firms moving high volume, mission- critical files. Eleven of the top fifteen printers in North America use MassTransit, according to company statements.
GroupLogic will continue to provide maintenance to the OS 9 version of their software until the end of 2004.
