Managed File Transfer Tool

MDREN will be using the Fortra GoAnywhere tool to enable researchers to move large data files to colleagues, cloud repositories (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc.), or High-Performance Computing Centers (HPC). The tool will be funded by the NSF grant obtained by MDREN.

Bowie State University has been using GoAnywhere to integrate Peoplesoft data with third-party providers’ software and with other internal systems. The tool provides secure encrypted file transfer capability and allows scheduling, and detailed logging. It’s really a “Swiss army knife” for file transfer and management. As some campuses plan to move to Workday or the Oracle Cloud, this could be a great solution to set up the transfer and document the process. It’s free to MDREN members. Most campuses are integrating with dozens of third-party software providers. This could make life easier and more manageable.

If you would like access and an orientation to the tool, contact Brad Bothun at .
