Different teams use FTP for all sorts of things. Some teams occasionally send and receive large assets such as PSDs, audio sessions, and video projects. Transcriptionists constantly upload and download small files all day every day. Some teams require very specific information security settings. Others require in-browser previews to avoid unnecessary downloading.
There are many different unique FTP needs, yet most FTP hosts think that a one-size-fits-all solution is good enough. We don't. We built Brick to make FTP useful for you.
An account on Brick is just a large filesystem, and you can divide it up as you see fit. Give your clients, vendors, and teammates access to whatever part they need. They can download and upload files via a beautiful web workspace, any FTP client, or a custom desktop uploader app that we provide.
You control exactly how to lay out your assets in the filesystem and then set permissions as to who can see, download, or upload in each folder.
Brick is powered entirely by Amazon Web Services EC2 cloud computing. Our infrastructure is being looked after by some of the smartest people in the web business.
Our customers use Brick for many different things, including HIPAA-compliant storage for medical and legal transcriptions, asset servers for sharing media with distributors, and file dropboxes for production companies.
Whatever your need is, you can probably customize Brick to create the perfect solution for your vendors, clients, and teammates.
