Deploy an SFTP Gateway instance with a few clicks from the AWS Marketplace as a single AMI or using the CloudFormation template (coming soon).
SFTP Gateway is self-configuring and automatically creates required AWS resources including S3 buckets, IAM Roles, and Security Groups.
SFTP Gateway comes with command line scripts to easily create or delete new FTP users. Secured SFTP user directories and SSH key pairs are automatically generated.
SFTP Gateway is configured with the appropriate security setttings, which comply with corporate security policies that require key-based SFTP file transfers.
Reliable for Production Environments
SFTP Gateway does not require a virtual file system mount or permanent connection to S3, making it more reliable for production environments.
Ideal for Automated Integration
Couple SFTP Gateway with S3 events and Lambda for automated integration between your AWS application and external or third-party systems.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who would find SFTP Gateway useful?
SFTP Gateway is ideal for a solution architect or development lead who is designing a new AWS application or migrating an existing application to AWS and is required to maintain legacy file-based interfaces with several independent or third-party systems.
How is SFTP Gateway different from other S3-based file system products?
The SFTP Gateway uses a different approach than other products. Rather than using a permanent mount or virtual file system, it monitors file descriptors as new files are written to SFTP directories. Once the file transfer is finished and the file descriptor is closed, it pushes the entire file to an S3 bucket.
How much does SFTP Gateway cost?
SFTP Gateway costs $0.05 per hour for all EC2 instance types and AWS regions. This does not include the hourly cost of using EC2.
