Our team regularly holds detailed technical discussions with some of the largest companies in the world. From these many discussions it’s become quite apparent that lying somewhere beneath the fancy logo and glitzy commercials you’ll find IT departments relying on tried-and-true technologies and protocols to get the job done.
One particularly prominent workhorse is SFTP. The Secure File Transfer Protocol is a secure version of FTP, and it transfers data over SSH. Because developers often desire to build features capable of securely transferring files to some server, DreamFactory offers an SFTP connector capable of generating a full-featured REST API for transferring and retrieving files and directories.
SFTP, or Secure File Transfer Protocol, is a popular solution for transferring files from one device to another. Its simplicity belies its popularity, with the vast majority of actions involving either sending (uploading) or receiving (downloading) files. Files are typically transferred between a FTP client such as FileZilla and an FTP server, although in many cases programmatic solutions involve transferring files from one server to another.
