I had the opportunity to speak with ShareFile customer and Deltex Medical Marketing Coordinator Tanya Lachlan. Tanya shared the challenges Deltex faced prior to adopting ShareFile and the overall results of implementing the service.
Deltex Medical markets and manufactures the CardioQ-ODM (Oesophageal Doppler Monitor), which enables anaesthetists to safely and accurately administer intravenous fluids during surgery using minimally invasive Doppler technology. This reduces the rates of post-operative complications as well as the length of critical care and overall hospital stay. The monitor is now being adopted into routine clinical practice in leading hospitals around the world. To date, more than 500,000 patients have benefited from the use of the ODM.
So you may be wondering how ShareFile plays a role in this business day-to-day?

Film Racing hosts several competitions throughout the year in which filmmakers from around the country are challenged to create an original short film in just 24 hours. The competition was created by Charlie Weisman and Craig Flamm, two New York filmmakers who wanted to create the ultimate filmmaking challenge and answer a question, “Can a movie be made in a 24 hours?” Since its start in NYC in 2002, Film Racing has expanded to 20 cities throughout North America and over 2,000 films have been created as part of the competitions.
Cloud-based file storage and transfer can be great alternatives to insecure email or FTP, but you may have some questions about what features and security cloud service can offer. Here are some common terms that are essential to know when evaluating cloud service providers.
SaaS: Software as a service (SaaS) is a model for cloud computing where software and data are hosted remotely on the software provider’s servers. Users connect to the service via the Internet. Web-based email clients are a popular example of SaaS, allowing users to log in to their inbox from an Internet browser rather than opening an installed client on their desktop.
Uptime: Storing data in the cloud is only helpful if you can get to information when you need it. Cloud service providers should be able to give you an idea of how reliable their service has been in the past. Uptime guarantees should account for scheduled maintenance that may affect the availability of the service.
In a recent article by Computerworld*, the author tested the upload speed of popular cloud-based file sharing solutions and ShareFile out performed competitors Box and YouSendIt.
According to the Computerworld, ShareFile uploaded a 100MB file containing PDF documents, JPG images and TIFF images in 7 min. 27 sec., over 20% faster than YouSendIt (9 min. 23 sec.) and over 39% faster than Box (12 min. 24 sec.).
Upload speed is the rate at which your data is uploaded to the Internet. Standard transmission speed is 500 to 900 Kbps (Kilobits per second). That speed is affected by a variety of factors. Internet network connection, the upload speed provided by your ISP, location and file size all determine the time it takes to upload information.
