Here’s an amazing tale of how Ipswitch WS_FTP software is being used by the European Columbus laboratory to securely transfer hundreds of megabytes of scientific data between the International Space Station and Earth.

“Crew time is so valuable and the volume of data involved is so large that a reliable and secure system for data transfer was absolutely essential,” explained Alain Maillet, Cadmos engineer.

“WS_FTP gives us the possibility to transfer all our scientific data files automatically and securely, not only in space, but also back down to Earth – it is secure, stable and easy-to-use.”

Here’s an action photo of Alain Maillet talking with the International Space Station from Toulouse, France.
