Add Fast File Transfers to Your Application with MASV in Docker

MASV file transfer is available on Docker Hub. To get started, just pull the container image and deploy it.

Our Transfer Agent is the easiest way to deploy and scale self-hosted large file transfer workflows on any hardware.


Transfer Huge Files

Send and receive files up to 15 TB and packages of unlimited size.

Run it Anywhere

A Docker image for both x86-64 and ARM64. Deploy it in the cloud, on-premise, or on your NAS.

Integrate With Your Systems

Call the REST API from your application, scripts, or NAS.

The Challenge:

My Application Needs to Share Large Files Quickly and Securely

AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other cloud providers have their own services for transferring large files, providing your files stay in their cloud. You have to provide your own infrastructure if your files need to enter or leave your cloud provider.

You could build your own file transfer functionality. You’ll need developer resources to tune network usage, design the UI, stay a step ahead of security threats, and make it scalable.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MASV Transfer Agent?

MASV Transfer Agent is a cross-platform service that manages file transfers to and from the MASV network. Your application or scripts interact with it via REST API calls.

Where can I run MASV Transfer Agent in Docker?

The Docker image for MASV Transfer Agent runs anywhere you can run Docker, like your cloud provider, your on-premise servers, or even your NAS. The Docker image is multi-platform for x86-64 and ARM64.

If you run your MASV container in the cloud, make sure your cloud provider lets you mount volumes to store the files you want to send or receive.

MASV is a cloud-based store-and-forward service. When you send a file, MASV Transfer Agent sends it to the MASV network where it is stored. To receive the file, MASV Transfer Agent downloads it from the MASV network storage.

To accelerate transfers, MASV uses a combination of techniques and technologies, including using regional data centers and splitting transfers into chunks to saturate network bandwidth.

MASV encrypts your files in flight and at rest. We adhere to industry standards for security, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, and TPN.
